COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good beer takes time. The long lager time makes our pale beer a matter of mild, flavourful beer enjoyment. Brewed in accordance with a centuries-old beer tradition on Weihenstephan Hill.

jmm1 (129) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - SEP 20, 2004
Light golden yellow color with a small head short lived. Grassy smell with some maltiness. Mild herbal flavor with some sweetness on the top and some malt to go along. Crisp with a slighty bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice Helles, but not a great one.

Nice looks with beautifull golden colour and a solid head. Aroma is malty with only hints of the hops. Flavor begins sweet but ends with a dry bitterness.

12oz bottle: Pours golden yellow with a white head. This is the definitive classic german pilsner. Despite the 43% rating here, I love this beer. great stuff.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2004
Bottle. Loved this stuff. Dry, herbal and grassy, bitter hops in the finish, and nicely dry to finish, slightly lemony. This is quality, i could have drank this all night.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Appearance: clear as a bell, pale yellow, brief white head. Nose: plain as the nose on your face, dry, with slight citrus and honey, but pleasant. Citrusy taste, but mild as mild can be in every way possible, mild and light, light and mild, sticking together like Mutt and Jeff, nothing can tear them apart. Good, tasty, lip-smackin’ texture, though, so, it’s got that going for it. Light’n’breezy, so, it’s perfect when that’s all you what, but frankly, it bores me to bits. As good or better than, oh, say, 85% of all the lagers in the world.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Clear pale golden color with medium white head. Malty aroma with light touches of toastiness and lemons, some light hops detected as well. Well balanced malts with a light dry and short hoppy finish. A refreshing beer if nothing else.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2004 Looks like a basic lager with a straw body with moderate carbonation and a sudsy white head. Buttery aroma with a touch of citrus and pineapple. Flavor, too, is buttery, fairly sweet, and has just enough Noble hop bite to lend some clean balance and make this easy to drink. Far from great but better than the vast majority of widely available German lagers.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Draught. Helles--no way. This is a classic German pilsener if anything. Pale golden, medium white head which lasts a while. Aroma is stale, but slightly malty. Flavor is very bitter, with little other taste. Classic pilsener from Deutschland.

r464 (1924) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pale with a heop-like aroma. Nice and crisp; a good summer lager. Perhaps a bit of citrus with an earthy feel to it. Not bad, but not too watery. A good thirst quencher.
