This beer pours a clear pale yellow with no head or lacing. It's aroma is lemony with a hint of dough. The flavor is mild lemon with a bit of malt sweetness and a hint of hoppiness. Very well balanced. It's mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Spaten Munchner Hell (Premium Lager) is a good beer, a perfect match for schnitzel and sauerkraut. Recommended!

Normally, I never go right down the middle on my reviews, but this is an exception. Its not that this beer is not good, it is that it is not really remarkable either. It pours a very average light see-through typical color of what you would expect from a lager. It has the carbonation, lace and head of a lager, and the aroma of barley and hops you'd expect from a better lager. The beer to me resembles a malt liquor in terms of the bitterness and dryness and it is evident on the tongue for a strong mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, not a great brew. I would drink Spaten if it was the only other option other than a cheap American adjunct lager.

Poured a one finger fluffy white head that quickly disappeared to nothing, the body is crystal golden yellow.

Sweet grainy malt, hops, some lemon in the nose, refreshing.

Taste is sweet pale malt, lemony, mild earthy hops,some biscuit

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation, slight lingering bitterness that coats all of your mouth, dry, very sessionable.

A good lager that was a pleasant surprise. Not a lager fan but this style seems to appeal to me. Would definitely grab it again or sip a few next octoberfest.

A - Attractive crisp, clear straw color. Above average sized, light, bubbly, foamy, soapy, white head. Decent retention leaving a thin, whispy lace.

S - Slightly subdued aroma with loads of grainy malt and some bready aroma as well. Some grassy Noble hops. Not bad but nothing spectacular.

T - Grain and bready malt make up a lot of the flavor. Some Granny Smith apple along with a floral/herbal hop flavor that gets stronger on the finish. Slight bitter kick on the finish but it doesn't linger long.

M - Light body with above average carbonation. Zesty and crisp feel that ends pretty fast without much lingering feel.

D - Very drinkable beer that has a nice spicy hop aspect that pairs well with the maltiness. Goes down easy and is refreshing and crisp.

Notes: Nice beer and a good example for the style. Goes down easy and is refreshing. Decent level of hops to contrast with the maltiness resulting in a well balanced, refreshing beer.
