Best by 3/2019

Pours a crystal-clear light golden straw with a towering, pillowy white head; great retention and a healthy smattering of leftover lacing.

Aromas of gritty, peppery hay smoothing to a floral grass character, with a soft hop finish and quiet, earthy malt backbone; simple upfront, but with a layered, approachable intensity.

Taste brings a great balance of light grass and thick hay, with an ensuing subtle hop character imparting a mild, herbal finish.

Mouthfeel is light-bodied with some perfectly integrated medium carbonation; soft all-around, but manages to prop up a dynamic profile through excellent structure on the palate; crisp, clean, and absolutely effortless.

Much like their Oktoberfest, this Spaten offering shows a ton of nuance from a simpler profile; a beautifully-structured beer, effortlessly consistent throughout, and another pleasure to drink courtesy of Spaten.

From the original Münchner Hell. A little light compared to Hacker Pschorr Münchner Gold Hell. but still good!

Nice lager. Smooth and with good taste. Nothing overpowering or too foamy, gassy either. Nice break from American IPAs that give me headaches.

Nice Helles - drinkable and good representative of the style. Maybe has a little more happiness and a bit drier and more carbonated than the HB Helles - more fitting for the hot summers as a session beer. There is a reason this beer has been around for so long - it's delicious!

From notes taken 08/08/17:

Clear, straw-gold but orange-tinted, with steady stream of rising fizzy bubbles to replenish light but condensed, fine foamy head of creamy white. Smells of skunk, corn or grain, honey, grass, faint lemon, in no particular order. Green bottle so skunk is not mystery. It’s not awful, though. Palate mirrors all of this for the most part. Except orange in addition to lemon. And it is much richer than certain others of the style, the grain bill is more robust or voluminous perhaps. Light-bodied, with a fine, soft, tingly almost effervescence.

Crisp clean smooth. Not feeling light a nice beir.

Look: pale yellow, fluffy white head that dissi[ates quickly
Smell: slightly skunked, but not too bad. Clean malts and hints of grassy hop
Taste: sweet grainy malt
Feel: light, moderate carbonation

I'd like to try one that's not skuned. It's pretty mild and easy to drink.
