look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from a gas station in Memphis, TN for $12 for a six-pack. Comes in green bottles with the Spaten logo front and center, a much simpler label than the Dunkel or Optimator. Poured into an Abita pint glass.

A: Pours a golden color, somewhat darker than the average pale lager, with a 1.5-finger fluffy white head that quickly disappeared. Lacing is decent at first but also quickly goes away. The glass may be partly to blame for this, as it seems to make head disappear particularly quickly with the various beers I've poured into it. At least it had plenty of carbonation bubbles, almost like a champagne.

S: A clean smell, not particularly strong, with a somewhat floral hop aroma.

T: Very crisp and refreshing, with a nice balance between the slightly sweet bready malt and spicy lemon hops. A hoppy aftertaste settles in and lingers on the tongue for a long time. This beer starts sweet when it hits the tongue but has a very dry finish.

M: Light-bodied but not unsatisfying, with moderate carbonation. Goes down easily, but is not watery.

O: It's not as good as the Spaten Dunkel, Oktoberfest, or Optimator, but a very nice pale lager. Definitely a step up from the cheaper European lagers like Beck's or Heineken. But, unless you're crazy about pale lagers, I'd recommend one of Spaten's darker beers instead, especially now in OCtober.

Pours a deep clear gold with a fizzy white head. The head doesn't last long but does leave a small amount of lacing. The aroma is mild, with light notes of cut grass and grain. The taste is similar with the addition of light hops earthiness. The mouthfeel is toward the lighter side with a nice bite from the hops on the finish. A very good lager.
