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)".

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)

Poured a clear yellow. Aroma was pepper and lagering yeast. Flavor was quite mild and good for a german lager...spicey and a bit bitter. Mouthfeel was very drying.

I wish I could have drank this on better terms, but we were forced to drink this because my friend accidently grabbed this one and not the hefeweizen. This is a very typical european lager. It is flavorful, very malty and quite bitter. i don’t know why you’d buy this when the Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen is available.

Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest, Jacksonville, FL, 3 June 2006. An OK German lager. Typical lager flavor, drinkable but not great. Many notches below their weissbeer in quality and enjoyment.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Enjoyed their weissbeer, but this one wasn’t so good. It tasted like Warsteiner with a grassy aroma and aftertaste. Cloudy yellow appearance with some citrus detectable. No head and lacing gone by the second sip. Since this is from the world’s oldest brewery, it’s possible that my bottle was from 1040. Label read "Original Lager."

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of bread dough, cookie malt, and toasted pale malt. Taste is bready, cookie, with a very clean lager finish. A little bit of Hallertau bitterness to round things out makes this is a solid lager. Mouthfeel is medium (full) bodied with lively carbonation.
