3.83/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: standard German 500mL macro brown bottle and standard label.
Appearance: one-finger fluffy white head that quickly dissipates, the body is crystal golden yellow.
Aroma: sweet grainy malts and some citric hops. Definitely smells refreshing and inviting.
Taste: transfers from the nose - those sweet pale biscuit malts, those citric hops and some faint earthy flavours.
Aftertaste: the more interesting flavours back off, to leave those more typical lager grains. Impressively, No metallic fug - very clean indeed. Good for a lager.
Mouth feel: medium-bodied with a lighter carbonation than the standard American or Australian lagers. Works well as it has more flavour and doesn't need to blast it across with higher carbonation.
Overall: very good quality lager, I thought it must have been a light ale or a pilsener. AU$80 a case for 2 x 500mL - not bad value at all for such a good quality lager.

Had as Spaten Premium Lager, 5.2 % alc.
Pours pale golden, small white head that goes fast to a thin sticky lace.
Tho a strong skunky smell at first, some nice grainy malts break through as it settles, a touch of fruit and some mild stewed hops.
Maltiness dominates the taste, grainy but also with a bit of sweetness, faint apple and lemon zest.
A bit of skunk, not too discomforting, grassy hop finish, a bit spicy, mild bitterness.
Light bodied, medium carbonation.
A decent lager, but doesn't really bring the German quality stamp.
