COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good beer takes time. The long lager time makes our pale beer a matter of mild, flavourful beer enjoyment. Brewed in accordance with a centuries-old beer tradition on Weihenstephan Hill.

Aroma is citrusy primarly grape. Appearance is golden with a moderate head. Flavor is crisp with a slight bitterness and a citrus and malt taste. A nice creamy moutheel. Not complex but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. This is a nice beer and a strange find at the grocery store.

My 900th rating! Everything has to be just right. The candles are lit, the lights are low, the pilsner glass and bottle of beer are placed in front of me. I open the bottle and fill the pilsner glass with a semi-hard pour. The time has come to do what I do... RATE! The beer is crystal clear and a light straw color. Large, fizzy, white head which diminishes quickly and leaves ink-blot lacework. I make out the number '900' within the lace blots. The aroma is sweet and malty with some floral notes and hints of honey and citrus fruit. Sweet, malty flavor with hints of honey and butterscotch up front. Well-balanced and lightly astringent on the backside with notes of bitter citrus fruit peel and black pepper. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not one of my favorite styles, but tasty nonetheless. Also, it had that extra sweet flavor of #900!

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2003
This beer had a golden color with a fair head and lacing, and a mild grassy hop aroma. Fairly light in body, well balanced but bland, with a dry finish.

Labeled as Original Lager. I was very impressed by this. I thought it was a first-rate lager, top of its style, and am rating it accordingly, especially since lagers tend not to get the highest ratings here at RateBeer.

Original lager. not bad at all...quite light with a crisp sourness. can't say as though i picked up much of the hoppiness, but still, not bad.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2003
I have really come to like a good Helles, amongst which I would count this beer. Malty aroma and flavour, with great balancing hop flavour and bitterness. Not much to say other than it's good.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Labeled as Original Lager. Clear, yellow appearance. Close to no aroma on this one. Some general lager flavors, minimal citrus flavors, some plastic and medicine type flavors. Not anything expectional at all, just another lager that's stuck in the middle.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Initially, I was a little disappointed when I poured this from a bottle into a glass--very light color with a not very impressive head. But that first taste brought me right around--much more to it than the appearance would suggest. I was especially fond of the hoppy followup. Very nice.

Very good "typical german beer"I can see now that many brewerys have tried to duplicate but only scruplicate this style of lager.Good head that hung out for a few.Interesting hazy golden.A bit coppery on the tongue.Has asweet (almost honey-like) characterer to it.Good lager beer from the german mang.Victory does this style very well though too.
