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)".

Pale golden with a full, but quickly dissipating head this brew has a full malty nose with grassy notes. Mouthfeel is slightly chalky and the malt grainy flavor lays on the tongue like a thin blanket. Well balanced. Light and slightly sweet, this is a good session beer.

Pour is yellow with a medium white head...smell is skunky grass...not a lot in the mouth, just a little sweet maltiness...good but a typical example of this style...

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Pours a light golden color with some head and not much lace. Aroma was skunky, actually. Some malt presense, but that’s about it. Flavor is sweet with some light fruits, but a little grassy. Still good, though. Palate is thicker than I was expecting. Overall it’s pretty good and worth trying.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Pours pale gold with a dissapating head. Aroma is malty sweet with a little apple. Flavor is sweet with a hint of honey. A grassy finish. A little metalic and watery. A nice light lager.

hershiser2 (1450) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Paid $1.49 for a 12-oz single. Pours very very very pale yellow, no head. Smells sweetly honeylike, but it’s not strong... Flavor is grassy and slightly skunked... but not horribly skunked. Very ordinary.

ALLOVATE (2654) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2004
For it’s style I cannot fault this. Tasted from the bottle this was part of my ’New Year’s Eve German Bier fest’ (very low key). Tasted from the bottle, it poured a golden straw with a loose fluffy white head that grew in the stein and later laced down to the finish. Aroma of malt, sunflower seeds, grass and lemons, mingled in the nose, very balanced. Very clean, as though the liquor were the purest on Earth. Effervescent , but lightly carbonated, like it had been stored for years. Medium bodied, not cloying, and rounded flavours in the mouth. Citrusy, grapefruit and lemons, mixed with malt sweetness in the front and a long zesty aftertaste. Not a demanding beer, but one you could sit on all day, with or without food.

I thought this was skunked at first but it seemed to blow off after a while. Crytsel clear medium gold in the glass. Malty nose shows good balance - not too sweet. Malt is more overt in the mouth, very smooth, not too fizzy and never gets too sweet. Pretty good and is well brewed but just doesn’t excite (note TN’s below). Would work well as a session type.

yellow to gold, white head, a bit of hops aroma, smooth and mild in every way; strikes me as simple.
