4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Weihenstephaner Original has a very thick, fluffy, white head and a brilliant, golden, bubbly appearance, with lots of little white chunks floating about and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bready, biscuity barley malt, and the flavor is similar, with a nice hop bitterness in the middle-to-end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Weihenstephaner Original finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a great beer, and I rate it very highly. Lovely! RJT

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - clear golden-yellow body, capped with a white head.
S - The mild aroma is primarily grains, with hints of citrus fruits, hay and hops.
T - Largely follows the aroma. Bready grains with hints of citrus and hops. More sweet than bitter. I’d like this better if it were stronger; as it is, it tastes like a world-class light lager.
M- Light body with a medium-high amount of carbonation. Slightly dry and crisp.
O: An excellent if delicately-flavored lager that is easy-drinking and refreshing. Too light and too close to ordinary to be very interesting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Simple and easy going Helles which starts off a bit sweet and ends a bit too dull. First I thought I would score it high but the aftertaste hit some bad points. Therefore bit aboce average.

Milky pale golden-yellow colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of light yeast. Taste of mild hops, ripe grains, cereals and warm hay. Very easy andnice to drink, surely one of the better Dortmunder / Helles but just no real highlight.
