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)".

Deep clear gold. Applesauce and ginger over sweet malt. Thin-bodied but nice.

The aroma was a little yeasty with a slight doughy smell. The appearance was golden and fizzy at first with a white head that was fully diminishing. The initial taste was slightly sweet and then left a slightly bitter taste in the back of the mouth. The taste was long lasting. This is my first review.

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a small fizzy, white head that fully dissipated rather quickly. Flowers and malt mix in the aroma. Sweet malts, grass, and light citrus hops in the flavor. Light body with lively carbonation in the mouth.

frankenkitty (1987) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Medium golden without carbonation. A large, white head fades fast. Initial diacetyl affront. Powdery, floral hop aromas emerge with light, candy-sweet malts. Stalish, lagered flavor with a sweet malt start followed by a light herbal bitterness. This is definitely not as good as Weihenstephaner’s Weisse offerings.

Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Aroma: Sweet, bready malts. ... Appearance: Golden, with diminishing head. ... Flavor: Sweet, malty from start to finish. Consistent, but a bit on the watery side for me. ... Palate: Pure malt, enjoyable. ... Overall: Be careful about this one: Some of the labels down here in Texas have it listed as "Original Premium" and call it a malt liquor-- thank you, Oakes, for clarifying that -- but a decent selection, nonetheless.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Had a slight sour tang and a mild biscuit flavor, but overall a honeyish malt, herbal hops, and a clean lingering bitterness. Very light-bodied. Meh.

My wife and I sampled this beer together and mine looked and smelled very different than hers. Mine was hazy and very yeasty smelling. Good beer though. Neat to drink a beer from the oldest brewery in the world (1040 according to the label) Yeasty straw flavor with stong aroma. Enjoyed.

pivnizub (9728) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2005
Bottle: Pale golden; thin white, quickly diminishing white head; grainy, dusty nose, traces of dough and caramel and a tinge of citrusy fruitiness; quite crisp, slightly sweetish flavour with a touch of bitterness; short grainy, citrusy finish with some hoppy traces. A pleasant, decent Helles, above the average...........
