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: 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.

creamy and that true resiny taste of a barrel aged lager. Probably the best lager imported into Texas currently. Edges out Altenmunster and Bitburger. Dont consider Pilsner Urquell and Czechvar true examples due to there pasteurized export state. Does anybody remember Grolsch when it had some age on it and a little house character? What made it famous is almost undetectable these days.

Nice toastey flaked barley nose with mild hop presence. Light & crisp with hints of corn. Nice mouthfeel, very drinkable. Subtle barley notes all the way through. Very pleasant & refreshing. Unoffending to all.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2003
Consumed at the Weihenstephaner Restaurant in Berlin (tap). Faint wheat aroma. Large head; mostly dissapating. Slightly cloudy, gold color with sparkling carbonation. Decent head. Plain lager flavor, just like those in the U.S. Not unlike Budweiser.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Aroma very hard to detect, but is present. No head at all, as well as no lace. Taste was fairly undetectable, though there was a slight hint of a honey flavor. Goes down real smooth, but without a lot of taste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Light aroma, hardly detectable malt. Pours very clear yellow with barely any head. Taste is very mild but present, I can barely detect a flavor of very smooth hops. This is a very easy drinking beer, unlike most stong stouts. I could drink this on a hot day and feel pretty good about it.

malty sweet aroma,nice carbonation,slight head,a distinct malt flavoring. a nice lager a bit sweet for me,maybe a little less sweatner(possible honey) would be better.
