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.
