4.85/5 rDev +32.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearence: Pours Straw Gold with a nice 2 finger frothy off white head that fades over a couple minutes. Ever so slight haze... Just under crystal clear. I would have gotten better lacing if I would have drank more down when it came to me cold and with frothy head, but what fun is that?
Smell: Sweet Aroma of Pilsner malt, as indicated by a pleasant level of DMS. Very slight toffee sweet overtone mixes with the DMS, If it is diacytl it is literally ON my threshold. Very mild noble hop aroma that lends or blends into an earthy mineral note. Beautiful.
Taste: Clean and malty with a small and desirable hint of DMS that fades as the bitterness balances the initial malt sweetness. Very nice balance as indicated by the gradual morphism from sweet and grainy to dry and lightly bitter. Mineral on the tongue just after swallowing when drank over top of the tongue. Clean and focused.
Mouthfeel: Sweet to start and drying in the finish averaging on mid round. Balance is impeccable.
Very Very tasty brew. This beer to me exemplifies a German premium lager.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
