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)".

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.

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.

peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Active golden body with a white soap head. Nose is strong with lemon, hallertau and clove. A pleasent, active mouth blends an immediate hoppiness with sweet yeast notes and banana. Supprising yeasty notes for a kristal.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Very distinct Bavarian flavor. Very satifying and drinkable. If your looking for a simple German Lager, this is ideal.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2006
500ml bottle. Clear, dull golden, grassy hue. Bubbling body with white head. Apples and citrus in the nose. Medium bodied and super lively. Sweet and smooth. Mildly dry with a short stint of a bitter hop flavor. As it warms, the bitterness starts to shine through. Still lively with a slight caramel sweetness. Slight grainy flavor. Honey note. Finish is smooth with a short lived smokey bitter bite.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2006
Very smooth and rounded for a style that really has little vairety amongst the different brewers. Grassy aroma, pungent and yet mild. Buttery palate and a rich malt flavors with some more grass notes.
