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)".

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB Mar 07). Mild maltiness and a little herbal hoppiness towards the end. On the whole a bit lacking with insufficient malt character and a slightly grassy unpleasant edge to the hops appearing.

SavannahBrewer (7) - Tybee Island, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2006 does not count
Poured from a 16.9oz bottle that was probably a little bit too cool. Clear light straw color with little head that fades fast. Rather malty aroma with a hint of hoppiness. Drinks very malty and easy. Quite good and drinkable lager.

16.9 oz bottle - Pours light yellow with a moderate, rather rapidly fading head. There’s a mild malt aroma with maybe a hint of citrus. The taste matches the aroma and is also mild, plus I’m picking up some yeasty flavor. The body is moderate, not as thin as I expected from a beer this pale. That’s good. This beer is light and easy to drink. It easily surpasses most of the pale lagers of which we see far too many, but is still not that great.

Clear gold, bubbly white head. Flowery aroma with some malt and hops. Taste is a lager with good maltiness. Good, nothing special.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2006
Light yellow beer. smells fruity, a bit hoppy and a bit skunky. Tastes more maltish, but also a bit lightstruck, some citrussy fruits too. Not bad, and nicely balanced.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle 39F Lager. Light aroma of hops, slight skunk, very light aroma. Very clear light yellow color, with decent white head that leaves a moderate ring and moderate lacing. Good crisp lager taste finishes clean with a slight bitterness, Nicely palanced good taste of mild german hops, with easy drinking light malts. Nice full palate feel, great carbonation, it looks and smells like a light lager but the taste is much bigger and the feel is much fuller. A nice lager good and very easy drinking. Ganz Gut.

vyvvy (5632) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Pours light yellow with a rocky uneven head. Aroma has light malt with hints of sweetness. Mostly a typical German lager. Light malt with a bit of corn syrup sweetness. The finish has some light spicy hop bitterness. A solid beer, but nothing to get too excited about.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Golden color pour with plenty of tiny bubbles rising to the top. Small creamy head that disappeared quickly. Nice bready, malty aroma and taste. Could easily drink quite a few of these. Very enjoyable lager.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pours a clear gold. Light white head, aromas of citrus and lght wheat. Tastes stronger towards the lght roasted whaet flavors. Very light on the tongue, and just a slight bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Very pleasant, boquet gets better as the beer warms in the glass. Slight malt which was confusing my roasted wheat assumption. I’ve got the Hefe in the fridge for the next round.(Bottle Pour 6/20/2006)
