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.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew was a highly carbonated pour which immediately filled my glass with a white head of small bubbles and a light transparent yellow orange color. Its aroma reminds me of fruits, but its taste is not fruity, but ... man I wish I was better able to describe my tastes. This one escapes me too. It is carbonated and smooth. Very drinkable and does not convey a high alcohol content. It was an easily drinkable beer.

A light straw colour which is lacking in depth or real flavour. Low carbonisation makes for a pleasant but uninspiring drink.Although the brewers describe it as a mild flavour I would use another m word-mundane.

Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a thin, fizzy white head. The aroma is light and mildly hoppy. Light bodied with medium carbonation, it has a crisp mouthfeel with a malty flavor up front and a dry, slightly hoppy finish. A refreshing lager.

Very light straw color. Foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Slightly fruity,slightly bitter,sweet at the end. Very mild and watery.

Good lager. Similer to Hacker Pshorre Munich, it is one of the best non weiss.

Malty - sour aroma - not unpleasant - but not over appealing. Little to no head which dissipates quickly. Murky, urine-sample like appearance. Dry, malty flavor - true to the style - with a bit ouf sourness. Decent mouthfeel - goes down smooth.

Perfumy hops in the aroma. Light straw color, poor head retention. Sweet malt up front, some Hallertauer hops, with a dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Before rating, I should mention that my bottle says "Original Lager"...leading to that always wonderful doubt as to whether or not I’m reviewing the correct beer. Color is a nice gold, with a quickly fading head that lacks a lot. The aroma is fairly nice for the style, though not remarkable. Flavor is decent, and drinkable, though again non-remarkable. All around, an acceptable lager, though far from being highly sought after, in my book.

A bottle of this came in my "Beers of the World" giftpack. I felt that my girlfriend's aromatic description was a bit unfair "smells like throwing up after ten tequila body shots". I found the nose to have a malty aroma of toasted cereal and flowers. The brew pours a light golden with floating yeast "mothers". The massive white fizzy/creamy head is fully lasting with fair lacing. The flavor is well balanced if bland, and the finish is long, nutty, and toasty. The light to medium body is creamy and soft, and finishes dry.

Straightforward lager distinguishes itself from american style with a breadiness in the mouth and slightly in the nose. After reading the dortmunder description I see that this breadiness is typical of the style, so I"ll re-rate and notch it up a point. Drinkable, not seekable.
