Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-18-2002

Its clear gleaming look and firm, fine pored head goes hand in hand with its fresh and pure aroma. Malty nuances are the first impressions.

Spezial Hell is pleasantly tangy with a full, round malt body that cannot fail to fascinate. The soft flavour carries a distinctive balance of sweet accents and bitter hoppiness.

It concludes on equally soft malty nuances – a classical festival beer in the tradition of old Bavarian brewing.

0.4 Litre, served in handled mug.

A: Very pale straw colour, clear, two finger head, kept a lid of foam
on top, also had some lacing.

S: Not overly pronounced, but a bit of subtle orangy Bavarian malt.

T: Hint of sharpness added to the south Bavarian malts, notes of orange.

M: Minimal carbonation, light body, went down OK.

O: More export than Helles, very drinkable.

This beer was a bright, light yellow color with a nice-sized white head.

Sweet malt aroma with some floral and grassy hops.

Sweet malt taste, bready. Late floral hoppiness.

This beer was a perfect beer to start my evening. Light, crisp, very drinkable. It paired well with some almonds I was eating.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5

appearance: crystal clear, a pleasant rich head but not doughy, effervescent without being over bubbly

smell: straw smell with a bit of fruit on the sides, nice mix

taste: nice where can I start. First its smooth flavor of great rich malty sweetness. On the end is a nice bight but not too much. Really loving this flavor.

mouthfeel: bit weak wish it hung out a bit longer, but it is more of just a bitter flavor not the full Monty

overall: A good brew they made this one so you would want one after another. I like it definitely recommend to anyone
