look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance- Crystal clear golden color with about a two fingers worth white head. Leaves some lacing around the glass.

Smell- I really don't smell much. Just some grains is really all I smell.

Taste- Just like it smells, grains. It is very clean and crisp although.

Overall- This is a kind of beer that I could drink all night or at a cookout. Very light and clean. Just not much going on with it.

i pretty much love all of Spaten's recipes. this pours nicely, laces in little spots and smells very pilsnerly. lager? smells hoppy, tastes very dr; finishes clean with a crisp taste. nice session beer, dry, a little bitter, very germany . . . . wish they would bring back the Club-Weisse....

12oz. botle poured into a tumbler glass

A- A clear straw yellow with a tight white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves a little lacing down the glass.

S- A straightforward graininess with aromas of lemon peal and white wine tannins. A bit of floral/earthy hops.

T- Clean. A nice mix of everything mentioned in the aroma, the touch of floral hops and tannins finish it out.

M- Medium carbonation, and not over the top on the bubbles like some can be. Light to medium body. Refreshing.

O- Pretty good stuff. Very clean, and nothing off-putting at all.
