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

A - Poured a golden yellow color with a white head the fades to a thin covering

S - Is mostly of malt with a hint of hops

T - Follows the smell malt with a touch of hops

M - Fairly thin with light carbonation

D - I expected more from Spaten I remember the other beers to be better than this. Over all this is pretty much just an average beer not bad just ok

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Look - Very light and clear. Decent carbonation, with half a finger of foam.

Smell - Hopy, wheaty type of smell.

Taste - Very earthy in taste, but light in general.

Mouthfeel - very light and a little watery.

Drinkability - not a great beer in general, in my opinion, not a whole lot of taste to it, but it would be easy to drink, so it gets higher repeat drinkability.

3.03/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance- Body is a light, golden straw with a very small white head. The head has no retention, and leaves behind no lace.

Aroma- Smelsl a tad light-struck. Behind that, you get a decent blend of malt sweetness, graininess and Saaz hops. To bad the fools had to out this in a green bottle.

Taste- Some Saaz hops up front, followed by a mellow malt sweetness. Rather pleasant. Kinda of has a tartness to it to.

Mouthfeel- Light, crisp, and good carbonation.

Drinkability- This would probably be a good beer if they packaged it right. They lose major points for poor packaging and getting it light-struck.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A: Very clear golden-yellow. Pours with a thin white head which dissipates quickly but leaves light lacing.

S: A little malt odor, but overall not much nose on this one.

T: Generic lager, very crisp but with no malts or hops to speak of. A faint sweet/syrupy flavor, and a moderately bitter aftertaste that fades quickly.

M: Light and carbonated, but again, no real complexity to be found.

D: Certainly refreshing and clean; drinkability is way up there.

On the whole I was disappointed by this beer. It's a cut above American macro lagers but has none of the complexity and depth that characterize Spaten's other offerings.
