3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brightly clear, light golden dulled yellow color with a thin white frothed cap that faded off quickly. Smell has a nice crisp and clean herbal essence with a soft, fresh bread roll dough. Quite nice, a firm crispness and sweet doughy breading for its nose, which really comes together as it warms. Taste is a nice crisp and clean hop, some dried herbal variants float around that are light and airy with a nice and firm bread dough sweetish malt backing. Totally reminds me of the dough used for white bread rolls or cresent rolls. Feel is a bit lighter on the body but the super clean, super crispness makes up for the lack there of. Kinda sweet and very smooth, quick crispness at first with a lightly dry breadish souring finish thats nice. A pretty darn good Helles thats easy, clean, crisp, and drinkably good. Yum.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours transparent gold, with a large, quickly diminishing head. A good lager flavor, dominated by malts. Much better than your typical lagers, but don't expect a lot of flavor here. Smooth and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks like a typical lager. Golden body, bubbly white head. Strongly effervescent. Aroma is bland but clean with a hint of malt and not much more. Tastes metallic with some malt and hops presence. Finishes with a bit of alcohol. Overall, not bad but I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light, clear golden color with a rocky white head. Very lively carbonation in this beer. LIght aroma of hops, smells almost like a pils. Somewhat malty flavor, few hops at the end. Overall, pretty weak taste. Crisp finish is about it. Not all that great. Kinda sad, they make one helluva hefe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 I am not a big fan of this type of beer in general but this is certainly one of the better ones I have tried. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head that quickly dissipates. There is a strong sweetish, almost fruity aroma. The flavor is malty and sweet, with a maltiness that lingers. The beer has a light texture.

Lighest beer i have tried in the weihenstephaner line. this is quick an upgrade from american piss. The problem is that this brewer has a lot better to offer, so when it comes down to it, there is better in the same place for the same money.
