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)".

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Pours with a small creamy head, decent lacing; Nice, mild, smooth and somewhat malty flavor, hints of cookie dough and citrus; slightly dry finish; thin body; highly drinkable and somewhat tasty, though not very exciting.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Pours a clear golden yellow, medium frothy white head. Aroma is skunky at first, but then I noticed more bread and malt. Thinnish to medium body, lively carbonation, flavor of mineral water and metals, rye bread, and at times is buttery smooth, with a tangy and sticky finish. Refreshing, nothing special, but it does go down smooth.

Pailhead (5747) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Bottle: Has that salty smell again. Very similar to the Korbinian that I recently rated, but not as strong. Kind of a soup smell but I can’t put my finger on the type. Pours a transparent, slightlly pale yellow with a white head that never really gets going. Rather lacking in flavor with slightly cirtrus/sour finish. Somewhat of a buttery taste too. Very smooth mouthfeel. Really lacking in flavor. I’ve enjoyed most of the beers that I’ve samppled from them, but this doesn’t seem up to par with the rest of their beers. It's one of those beers that's not bad, not good, it just exists.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Medium golden in color with a significant whipped egg white head that is nicely retained. Aroma is very nice exhibiting qualities not often found in a lager. The aroma is grainy, but it is obvious that this has spent time in the tank "lagering" which is something many in this style are mising. Flavor is clean and subtle with light notes of grain and light bitterness. Very enjoyable to drink and nicely refreshing.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Golden colored pour with a thick white head. Smelled skunky with a little bit of hops. Falvor wasn’t as bad as the smell. It was crips, without a whole lots of strong flavors.

Maybe I bought a bad bottle. Skunky, I could smell it as soon as I opened it. Tasted better than it smelled.

heemer77 (5187) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Bottle. Has a small white head and is a deep gold with a lot of sediment. Light aroma of grass and lemons. The taste is almost sickly sweet at first, like pineapple. Also, there are some malty notes rpesent. A bite later on with the carbonation. This is drinkable, but not great.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2004
500mL Bottle, 05.14.04 Pours quite pale, slightly clouded golden. Small head quickly fades. Aromas are nice, though light hints of pale malts and honey. Not much body, nor complexity. This is, however, a nice alternative to bigger beers. Yep, mostly malts and honey are what I’m tasting. Finishes somewhat sour...huh.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2004
The aroma here is so mild as to elude immediate noticeability. The appearance is an orangish blonde (more blonde). The flavour is light and somewhat shy, malty and somewhat bready. This tastes like a German light beer. And I didn’t know the Germans *did* light beers - somewhat disappointing.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2004
Brightly clear, light golden dulled yellow color with a thin white frothed cap that faded off quickly. Smell has a nice crisp and clean herbal essence with a soft, fresh bread roll dough. Quite nice, a firm crispness and sweet doughy breading for its nose, which really comes together as it warms. Taste is a nice crisp and clean hop, some dried herbal variants float around that are light and airy with a nice and firm bread dough sweetish malt backing. Totally reminds me of the dough used for white bread rolls or cresent rolls. Feel is a bit lighter on the body but the super clean, super crispness makes up for the lack there of. Kinda sweet and very smooth, quick crispness at first with a lightly dry breadish souring finish thats nice. A pretty darn good Helles thats easy, clean, crisp, and drinkably good. Yum.
