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)".

50 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Yellow clear colour with a nice lace head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Very dull flavour and crisp finish, some speciel flavour at all.

(Bottled, bought at the Brewery pub) A boring beer, with very little taste at all. I don’t know why they bother to brew this when they have other splendid beers!

I don’t know why this beer gets so low reviews. It’s a good lager - full of flavor, good mouth-feel, and smooth finish. Has an unfiltered hazy golden appearance with a fairly large head. Sweet malty aroma with some floral hops. Malt flavor tastes like there is honey mixed in with the beer. Also has a nice crisp hops flavor of citrus.

Pretty typical of average-good German beers. A little too light in flavor and body for my personal taste, but it’s refreshing in an American lager way, and at least better than that.

shrubber85 (9121) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle. Sweet corn/barley aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet stale barley flavor - slight bitterness in finish. An okay beer but nowhere near the quality of their Hefe.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 2, 2005
(called Original Premium) pour deep golden for a lager. sweet flavor is the first note to hit the palate followed by a strong bitter aftertaste. no head, or maybe i poured poorly. very refreshing. in 2035 wiehenstephaner will be 1000 years old. party in munich

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 2, 2005
(Bottle, called "Weihenstephaner Original Lager") Foamy white head on yellow body. Pretty cloudy. Some lacing. Aroma honey, malt, sweetness. Mouthfeel watery but fairly smooth. Body weak. Faint sweet malty taste, very faint smokiness, not much else.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Sweet malty aroma. Malty flavor with just a hint of a hop bite. Good beer to enjoy anytime. I have become an instant fan of this brewery. I must try more from them :-)

thegreenrooster (3565) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Pour is a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malty with a slight hop. Flavor is a sweet, almost honey malt. Finished bitter and smooth. I have seen some bad ratings for this brew but i found it quite tasty and refreshing.
