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.

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.

This was the only malt liquor I had in the house so in honor of Jam Master Jay’s passing I thought I would drink one. A VERY drinkable malt liquor, that is worth trying. The label says its the old brewery in the world, and that’s cool for me...

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Rich gold color with a generous head. Mild vanilla, honey, and orange blossum smell. Honey/caramel flavors with citrus tones. The head is gone now, but meager tatters of lace are determined to hang on. Malt and honey starting to shine through as this nears room temp. Subtle hop and iced tea finish lingers

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Lt gold color, small head. Aroma is a little chemical, but there is also vanilla and yeast. A lighter bodied Dortmunder, more largerish in taste. Light malts and hops. Mild flavor, not very complex. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2002
PGC under medium size medium-short lasting fine bubbled white head. Almost odourless - perhaps a very faint mild bitter hops. Medium thin body. Mild hoppy, hint of grainy sour start. Slightly sweeter maltier herbier middle and faint mild bitter finish and aftertaste. I really can’t see anything special about it, it’s really just a basic beer.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Update: I just had a completely different beer than the one I rated earlier (2.2). This was fantastic, with terribly nice lush Germanic pale malt. First calss Helles. Old: Nose has a little bananas and some grass. The body is light and the flavor grainy and unkind. A heck of a lot like Warsteiner (which isn't saying much), and still not as good. And I actually LIKE this style.
