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)".

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

Spisane z Notatek kiedy Ratebeer był w zeszycie i główne poszukiwania nowych piw i smaków, odkrywanie świata to były głównie piwa zagraniczne w dużej mierze niemieckie, Piwo wypite: czerwiec 2008, Z notatek wynika że smakowało tak sobie bez ekscytacji :)

500ml bottle (Alko?, Helsinki?)
Pale gold, brief tight head. Rabit hutchy aroma, but some corny aspects too. Starchier taste, orangy lemonadey hops. Thin palate, but fitting carbonation. Pretty boring lager, trying to be hoppy, but a bit thin and extractly. This besmirches Weihenstephaner’s name. Love the weizens, why do they make this nonsense. Not bad, but not worthy of a great Bavarian brewery.

500ml bottle (Alko Arcadia, Helsinki)
Massive weetabixy aroma, gentle hops. Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Taste pleasantly malty, and nice noble hops. Very pleasant fresh crisp lager taste, refreshing. Noble hops very nice, but they do get a little papery and metallic after a while. Very nice and hoppy lager. Nice long finish.

ippopotamo36 (676) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 18, 2015
0,50 bottle purchased in Belgrade-Serbia at the Beerville store. Ciao Vlada! Pours a filtered yellow bright color, medium white foam. Nose: very mild malty notes, almost hidden, some cornish feel, lager all the way. Mouth: a bit better, malty with a pleasant aftertaste of bread. Far too easy - drinking and not that farmhouse orientation although it stays a good helles for solid drinking sessions. Hidden herbal final if you try to spot it. Ok

Clear golden beer, medium white head with pretty nice lacing. Malty nose with dry notes, grass, some mild spiciness. Flavor is malty, some grain, lemony notes and grassy hops in the semi-dry finish. Smooth palate. Extremely quaffable.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Light carbonation and body and texture. Biscotti and cream. The malt is the star here. Goes down way too easy and I see why this is a "headache beer". Very clean finish Enjoyable. At it’s best on a warm/hot day.
