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.

Pours light yellow with mild carbonation. Initial notes of malty cereal and finishes with a very light touch of hops. Quite easy to drink and refreshing but still has character.

agent_persik (473) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2015
Clean pale golden color, big white head. Aroma of malt, grain and grass. Sweet dry taste, lightly bitter finish and grainy aftertaste. Thin body and lively carbonation. Decent beer for easy drinking.

Authentic German brew w. purity and clean finish; very drinkable; minimum of 75-characters required for rating to accept. If you can find it, buy it and drink it.

martjoobolut (1132) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2015
0,5L bottle (as Weihenstephaner Original Helles from Stockmann, Tallinn), BB 01.12.15. Pours clear golden with white-ish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grainy, malt, metallic notes in the background. Flavor is sweet, malt, some fruity notes, some bitterness, grains. Overall: not a fan of the style, but for some odd reason I enjoy this one.

Draft. Beautiful golden lager. Funny smell of grass and earth. Fizzy and sparkling. Would be a great drink on the beach.

AbbeyRoade (435) - Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Fantastic Helles! Incredibly easy to drink and so refreshing. Another classic Weihenstephaner masterpiece. Pale but not simple at all! Nice and bready, mildly sweet, not bitter but the sweet is offset by a paleness that leaves this smooth and balanced.

Atom (1552) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle pours a clear pale straw with a large white head. Aroma of sweet grain and malt with mild grassy hops. Taste of sweet grain and malt.

jice (145) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 19, 2015
Même moyenne, cette Lager est bien meilleure que d’autres breuvages qui prétendent l’être. Couleur plutôt claire, la mousse résiste bien. Parfum de miel pour un goût assez neutre au final.

tricksta_p (1508) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2015
Aroma of sweet grain, hint of fruit, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Okay Helles.
