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)".

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Light carbonation and body and texture. Biscotti and cream. The malt is the star here. Goes down way too easy and I see why this is a "headache beer". Very clean finish Enjoyable. At it’s best on a warm/hot day.

Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is golden colored and pours a large white head. The aroma is malty and light sweet with tones of malts, yeast, grass and a hint of citrus. Taste is light sweet and malty and medium bodied. The finish is light bitter, light sour and grainy.

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a golden color of average clearness, good head but it dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt, weak caramel, weak hops, biscuit. Taste is metallic, maybe poor bottling for that note, also caramel and light hops. Not a lot going on here but a clean and drinkable beer. Anyone who doesn’t like this brewery should try their hefe, its to die for.

Valjunlainen, menettelevä pubikalja. Ei juuri Lapin Kultaa kummempaa. Aika pettymys muihin nähden.

bavarian81 (111) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a pale gold color with a two finger width head. It has that sweet aroma of grassy hops, biscuity malts or whatever.. It has a heavier body than I’d anticipated. I would have expected this to be a very light body, but it’s more of a medium body. The taste reminds me of a lot of other german lagers/pilsners. It has that typical German hoppy taste (which I guess is Saaz, Noble or whatever).

rotaman14 (304) - Potsdam, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2015
Grass aroma. Sweetish, some metallic bitterness in the finish. Bland and boring, like so many brews from Weihenstephan. Is it the most overrated German brewery? Probably. Not saying that this style isn’t boring per se, but this one takes boring to a whole new level. The Helles from Ayinger for example managed to have a pleasant and appealing taste. This one doesn’t even achieve that.

Pours light yellow to pale gold with moderate white head. Grassy aroma with notes of lemon. Malty flavor, minimally sweet with very mild, dry metallic aftertaste with mild bitterness. Sweetness more pronounced as it warms. Light-medium body with light carbonation. Overall excellent Helles lager, very drinkable.
