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)".

Clear golden color with a fluffy-white- rapidly dissipating head. A bit skunky. Notes of malt. Not much hop aroma. Sticky lasting hop flavor. Not too sweet, good bitterness up front. Refreshing light mouthfeel.

Wow this stuff is delicious. Golden pour with thin but clingy white top. Aroma is bready with faintest hop just detectable. Flavor is remarkable bready malt that’s so smooth and a little sweet mid-sip. Finishes clean. Simple and fantastic.

One of the best lager beers but still lacking behind ale beers. White head is nice, it just needs a bit more bitternes.

odannyob (121) - Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2016
From chilled bottle spilled gently in to lager glass. A quick aroma of thin breads w/sharp edged crust. A color of high yellow and spread goldings. I like it. The six pack I purchased had labeled bottles stating "Original Premium Premium Bavaricum" and the handle "Original Premium". What the Helles. Good stuff, this.

Schlumpfhunter (113) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Farbe: gold Schaum: fein, dann weg Nase: hm klarer Grashopfen, ein bisschen Honig, ungewöhnlich für ein Helles. Geschmack: ui sehr dominanter Hopfen, im Abgang deutlich à la Keller, mit leichter Gerstennote. Das ist nicht meins, eher was für alte Männerkneipen

YantarCoast (766) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 9, 2016
500ml bottle from Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is bread, malt and weak hops. Taste is bread and grains, followed by a mild bitterness. Everything that I would expect from a helles.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 0,5l bottle. Pours golden color with medium white head. Malty and grassy aroma. Very smooth malty taste, very fresh. A bit hoppy at the and. Medium body and carbonation. Nice a bit bitter aftertaste. Very good helles.

Steffan (37) - WALES - APR 3, 2016
Not one to care too much about aromas but this one’s was a bit of a rough, grassy slightly skunky smell, typical of lagers. Appearance, slightly cloudy dark yellow with one finger head. Taste is wonderful bready smooth malts with a lasting peppery hop finish. Light and slightly bitter on the palate, this helles is a bit more hoppy than most. Overall, smooth as a baby’s behind and alarmingly easy to drink, so well balanced and great on a hot day or after sports. A great session lager but I highly recommend not drinking other beers while your sessioning with this as other beer tastes could ruin your appreciation for this lager’s great balance and subtlety. The best lager in the world in my opinion.

McSherman (462) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2016
goldgelb, etwas blass, klar mit weißem Schaum. Süßlich getreidig-malzig, erinnert etwas an milden Honig. Insgesamt ein mildes, süffiges Alltagsbier ohne Schwächen.
