UPDATED: OCT 2, 2015 Bottle. Pours a yellow color with white head. Pizza crusty, bread, malty, sweet aromas. Sweet bread, malty, cornmeal, grain, slight herbal hop flavors. A more traditional wiesn type, rather than a marzen. Nice.

Light golden color decent off white head. Rich bready pilsner maltiness with hints of floral spicy hops and just a touch of green apple. Nice malty Marzen beer!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330cl bottle. Appearance: Crystal clear yellow with a light white foam head.
Aroma: Bready malt with a strong floral, spicy hop aroma.
Taste: Light, bready malt with a spicy, moderate bitterness. Very similar to a Helles, maybe slightly more on the bitter side.
Mouthfeel: Light body with a brisk carbonation. Hint of alcohol warmth in the finish.
Finish: Bready, spicy hop flavors linger after the swallow.
Overall: Very similar overall to the Weihenstephaner Original Helles. Bitterness is slightly more pronounced and there is a touch of alcohol warmth not found in the Original.

On tap at Brewhouse Gallery. Served in a pint glass. Paler than I expected. Clear golden, like a pilsner. Smells like pilsner malt too. Light breadiness. Taste is sweet and fruity. Bread is secondary and only comes through in the back end. Medium light. Medium carbonation. Not really what I was expecting, but ok.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(From 2012 notes in Bavaria).
Sparkling clear golden (a la pilsner). White head leaves exceptional lacing.
The aroma features light bread and malt with a touch of earthy hops. The taste largely follows the smell but with a more substantial hop note at the finish that lingers on a good while.
M: near medium body; notably clean
O: no flaws is this session beer; the finish is the strong point.
