COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good beer takes its time. The long storage makes our yellow bright lager, “Original”, a flavourful beer enjoyed with fine poured, white foam. With a mild hoppy note and its pleasant fresh spicy taste, it goes very well with salads, poultry, stews or with a hearty snack. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Formerly known as "Weihenstephaner Original Bayrisch Mild (Premium)".

Schlumpfhunter (144) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Farbe: gold Schaum: fein, dann weg Nase: hm klarer Grashopfen, ein bisschen Honig, ungewöhnlich für ein Helles. Geschmack: ui sehr dominanter Hopfen, im Abgang deutlich à la Keller, mit leichter Gerstennote. Das ist nicht meins, eher was für alte Männerkneipen

YantarCoast (941) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 9, 2016
500ml bottle from Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is bread, malt and weak hops. Taste is bread and grains, followed by a mild bitterness. Everything that I would expect from a helles.

Steffan (58) - WALES - APR 3, 2016
Not one to care too much about aromas but this one’s was a bit of a rough, grassy slightly skunky smell, typical of lagers. Appearance, slightly cloudy dark yellow with one finger head. Taste is wonderful bready smooth malts with a lasting peppery hop finish. Light and slightly bitter on the palate, this helles is a bit more hoppy than most. Overall, smooth as a baby’s behind and alarmingly easy to drink, so well balanced and great on a hot day or after sports. A great session lager but I highly recommend not drinking other beers while your sessioning with this as other beer tastes could ruin your appreciation for this lager’s great balance and subtlety. The best lager in the world in my opinion.

McSherman (540) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2016
goldgelb, etwas blass, klar mit weißem Schaum. Süßlich getreidig-malzig, erinnert etwas an milden Honig. Insgesamt ein mildes, süffiges Alltagsbier ohne Schwächen.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Keg at BD Camden. It pours clear yellow - gold with a medium white head. The aroma is fresh white bread, cereal, straw, grass, lager maltage and perhaps a touch of ginger. The taste is crisp, clean, grassy, light floral, straw, touch of spice, white bread and lemon peel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation.A quality and chuggable lagerbier.

kapusil (1179) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 9, 2016
0.5l bottle. Clear golden body, white head. Aroma and taste of bread, grains, hay and a tiny bit of spicy hops. A typical helles, not more but not less either.

Towey1989 (1806) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Keg at Brewdog Camden. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, bready malts, slight pepper and some spicy, grassy hops. Taste of grain, bready malts, slight lemon and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, soft, bready malt bitterness in the finish. Decent aroma with some hop presence but kind of lost in the taste. Isn’t exciting and typically German but it’s decent and drinkable.
