Do you mean the Spaten Premium Lager, which is a Munich helles? Almost none of the German hellesbier I've had makes it across the pond without suffering for the trip. There's something just too delicate about it. The best example I've had over here was at last summer's NHC in Cincinnati. It was a one-off batch brewed by the Hofbrauhaus across the river in Kentucky and served at Pro Brewers Night of the conference. The beer was wonderfully refreshing yet brimming with refined and subtle flavor. I'd love to see a recipe.

I agree that imported helles simply just does not stand up to the trip across the pond. They are generally exceedingly simply recipes with pils and just a tiny addition of carapils along with a light addition of Hallertauer hops. This is a beer style not about the recipe as much as a focus on brewing and especially fermentation.

I was referring to Spaten lager. I'm wondering what yeast is used.

I believe all of the Spaten beers (there are at least 11 different ones in various styles, according to ratebeer.com) are lagers. My go-to lager yeast is Wyeast 2206.
