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.

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

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin bright white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of grainy and biscuit malts plus grassy and spicy hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has initial flavors of grain and biscuits followed by spices from the hops in the finish. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very well balanced between the malt and hops and is also quite easy to drink.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass
No freshness date

A - A gorgeous hazy golden-straw color with a nice frothy head.

S - Classic german yeast and hops make this the one of the best smelling Helles Lagers I've experienced. Doesn't beat an IPA though.

T - My first impression is "wonderful." Very clean all around. You can "taste" the floral hops on the finish and it keeps you coming back for more.

M - Very, very clean. The light malt comes through upfront, followed by a crisp finish that makes this very refreshing.

O - Munich Helles Lagers done right are some of my favorite lagers for summer. That being said, this Helles is done to near perfection. Pick up a six pack for yourself and enjoy a summer afternoon (or two or three).
