A good beer takes its time. The long storage makes our yellow bright lager, “Original”, a flavourful beer enjoyed with fine pored, 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.

htnicholas (50) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
From a 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with an ample thick white head. Moderate carbonation. Smells of sweet carmel, bread, and hay. Taste is dominated by sweet carmel and bread-like malt flavors with very slight hoppiness to it. Mostly sweet finish. A little less hop character than I would expect. A decent session beer but a little sweeter than I would like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
Clear pale gold with resilient layer of white foam after an aggressive pour. Smells mildly of cookies, bread dough, a subtle whiff of candied orange. Mildly sweet, low bitterness, light touch of doughy acidity, lingering note of alcohol. Medium bodied, a bit creamy and slightly slick. Attractive uncomplicated quaffer, better just to drink than to analyze. Oh well.

Robe blonde pale limpide, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez de céréales, cron flakes, miel. Bouche légère sur des saveurs maltées avec une arrière bouche sucrée de miel. Très bonne buvabilité, plutôt une bière de soif.

Draught at Biergarten 1040, Tel Aviv. Clear yellowish with white head. Malty aroma with notes of flowers and perfume. Bitter flavor, light hoppy bitterness, malty with notes of flowers. Light-bodied. Nice and easy to drink.

zvsn (1678) - ISRAEL - SEP 1, 2016
On-tap at Biergarten 1040. Clear yellow golden with a persistent creamy head. Aroma of grainy malt and a bit of herbs. Sweetish, malty, grainy, a bit grassy and floral, mild crispy bitterness. Light-bodied. Decent thirst quencher.

Unde (902) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Clear golden yellow beer with smallish head on top and it leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma has honey sweetness, barley malts and lots of it. Taste is nice and malty, honey sweetness too. Medium body and medium carbonation. Excellent lager, if every lager would be like this.

sharkydodson (1193) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUN 30, 2016
the aroma is malty and herbal with shades of buckwheat and straw... the taste clear and refreshening, malty and tart, with notes of herbs and spices, and with smooth hoppy bitterness... dry and bitter aftertaste...

Beautiful pour creates a fluffy, medium duration head over a golden beer. Bread yeast on the aroma along with a whiff of mowed grass. The light, tangy taste is mostly sweet. This brewery is just so consistent, and it travels 4,500 miles to get to me. The label on the bottle I drank identifies the beer as Original Premium, but who am I to quibble for a lager this delicious.
