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)".

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a pale straw gold, very lightly hazed, and topped by an inch of quickly disipating white foam. No head retention, no lacing. Mild bready malt aroma. So far no big deal. But then... But then I sip it. Oh yeah, this is good stuff. Subtle and smooth, but still pretty flavorful, this beer has a little sweet toffee malt and a mild frutiness that compliment each other very nicely. Behind that, there is an herbal hoppiness. Almost medium bodied, great carbonation, satisfying but not heavy in the slightest. Clean, but not crisp - not dry at all. Tasty stuff.

glider (57) - Shrub Oak, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Flavorless. Decent mouthfeel. A sad example of German brew. Reminded me of cold tonic/medicine. Won’t be drinking this again.

rayg1 (586) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Pours a clean clear looking light yellow with a small white bubbly head. Smells of straw and light honey with some weak floral notes and maybe a bit of funk. Taste is VERY light even more so than the nose which was fairly faint itself. Picking up some wheat flavors with a small bit of floral sweetness. This would be refreshing on a summer day. Still, If I were to go this light on a beer I would chose a good pils over this.

Almost clear light yellow-gold. Good-sized, very persistent and sticky white head, with lots of lacing. Aromas are surprisingly low-toned, with toast, ripe fruit, and spice. Carbonation is high but exquisitely fine, lending a more substantial mouthfeel to this otherwise light-bodied brew. Flavors are light and more restrained than the nose, leaning towards the sweet side of the spectrum. Outstanding - however, the sweetness means this is not the best option for a refreshing, quaffing lager.

POD (198) - USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden color. White bubbly head with little to no aroma. Mild sweet beer flavor with lingering tart malt aftertaste. I drank it ice cold and it quenched my thirst. Not bad. I’d drink it again it it was free.

AskForJenny (1062) - Ontario, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2006
12oz - Pale straw colored liquid supporting thick white head. Bloom of hops upon pour. Apples and hops on nose. malt fading to waaaay too sweet a finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and citrus. The flavor is weak citrus, sweet malts, with a thin palate. Not their best brew by far, but rather inoffensive.

DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Attractive golden color with a medium head. Prominant citrus aroma. Great character with a very smooth finish. Quite refreshing. They have had awhile to get this right. Since 1040.

DJC (238) - USA - NOV 13, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Pale gold color, and barely a head. No real lacing. Aroma is of mild citrus. Subtle hop flavor, with nice carbonation. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Looks, smells and tastes almost like a MACRO. Golden color with thin body. Smells and tastes of corn. I really didn’t enjoy this one and I love this brewer.
