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.

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.

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.

Bottle of the Original Lager. Medium golden color wit ha tan head. Yeasty and slightly citrus aroma, rather ordinary and boring. The flavor is hard to find. This one didn't sit well.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUN 13, 2003
My first Weihenstephaner beer. Came in a tall, 16 oz. brown bottle. Poured out the color of fresh hay, a very light golden color. Has a fast fading head that left a ring of fine, misty bubbles around the rim of the glass. This is the lightest colored beer I've ever seen. Aromas mostly of fresh hay, with some grassy notes as well. Hersbrucker hops come to the forefront of the aromas as you drink it. Very crisp & refreshing on the palate. I imagine it would go great with some knockwurst, and German Chocolate Cake. A really well made, well balanced beer. Finishes very smoothly. I really like this beer, you might too.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Poured a clear golden yellow with a nice white head. The taste was very similar to most other Helles lagers...this is a beer to enjoy when the mercury rises.

drywallman (329) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2003
The nice pillowy head was immediately noticable along with the very pale traw color. Not too malty, and had a decent hop bite. Nothing real exciting.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Pours with a nice soft color. Smooth flavor, nicely balanced. Not too spectacular, but very quaffable.
