Spaten Munchner Hell poured a lighter amber color, with almost no head. There wasnt much of a smell to it either. It tasted very much like a typical lager, but a bit stronger, and smooth. It like lagers had an easy drinkability. Overall a better lager, easy to drink, a good beer.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a fairly good representation of the style, which almost tends to be unexceptional by definition. Nevertheless there's some elegance about it- any misstep in production or design would be immediately noticeable- and a nice seamless quality. It has a pleasantly restrained nose, slightly favoring the spicyness of the hops. It finishes soft and slightly malty.

Poured on tap in a shaker at The Pantry (minus the green food coloring offered due to St. Patty's). Crisp golden color like a mildly tarnished golden wedding band with a cap of thick white head that kept pretty good retention and a touch of lacing. Smelled a lot of biscuit mix, freshly kneaded in the kitchen from several feet away as well as a touch of some citrus. The citrus came out more pronounced in the taste and mouthfeel, almost like a bit of lime zest and/or rind along the back of a bready malt. The mouthfeel was pretty light and just a very small touch of carbonation and spritz. Pretty good for a lager overall.

Serving type: on-tap

My friend decided he did not want this bottle because it said "malt liquor" on the front and I was more than happy to relieve him of it(wink wink). Bah, another green bottle! Oh well. It poured a light, pale, yellow without too much head and not very much carbonation apparent. The smell had contrasting sesations; first there was a shap(hallertau??) hop aromoa which cut through the more malty honey/flowery smell. The taste was sweet and thin up front, buttery and full bodied malts dominated the middle, which receded back to the sweet taste and finished with a hoppy(little bit skunky) bitter aftertaste. Vey decent beer.

Bought this in a brown 25 oz bottle with the usual gold foil around the top.
In appearance it looks like a 100 other German style light colored beers. Had a good head that dissapated pretty quickly.
Not a very strong smell at all unlike corn addled American macros..light and slightly hoppy.
Taste is pretty good though unexciting..maybe i shouldnt have eaten the slalmi before hand though :)
Nice feel around the tounge and the back of the mouth very nice.

Very easily to drink could see this as a good summer BBQ beer if i had the cash!

Pours a pale yellow color with almost no head. Aroma isn't too impressive with a slight skunk. Taste is somewhat smooth, even fruity and goes down very easily. There's some biscuit-like taste to it and it's definitely the opposite of what I expected it to be, due to the slight skunk in the aroma. I have to give this lager props for being very drinkable.
