3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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."
