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)".

Good clear color, probably from great water source. Aroma is light and warm. Taste is a bit fuller in the mouth than I was expecting, but finished clean and flavorful with a distinction lost in many lagers. Paired with pecan crusted chicken and pasta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ordybill (772) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass. Crystal clear yellow colored beer with a large white head. The aroma is big on grass and a slight floral scent. The crisp flavor of grains and some lemon zest with a dry finish is a well balanced touch. The palate overall is composed of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding beer.
