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.

theviolet (173) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2011
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.

suurjuust (1548) - ESTONIA - APR 27, 2015
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.

Robe blonde et limpide, pas de mousse. Saveurs de malt, fruits jaune et de crème. Légèrement herbale. Moyennement longue en bouche. Une bière honnête.

growler6 (35) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2015
UPDATED: APR 21, 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.

bonkiedeaap (386) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is golden colored and pours a large white head. The aroma is malty and light sweet with tones of malts, yeast, grass and a hint of citrus. Taste is light sweet and malty and medium bodied. The finish is light bitter, light sour and grainy.

BadAprilia1000 (341) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a golden color of average clearness, good head but it dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt, weak caramel, weak hops, biscuit. Taste is metallic, maybe poor bottling for that note, also caramel and light hops. Not a lot going on here but a clean and drinkable beer. Anyone who doesn’t like this brewery should try their hefe, its to die for.

Toomio (312) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Valjunlainen, menettelevä pubikalja. Ei juuri Lapin Kultaa kummempaa. Aika pettymys muihin nähden.

bavarian81 (73) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a pale gold color with a two finger width head. It has that sweet aroma of grassy hops, biscuity malts or whatever.. It has a heavier body than I’d anticipated. I would have expected this to be a very light body, but it’s more of a medium body. The taste reminds me of a lot of other german lagers/pilsners. It has that typical German hoppy taste (which I guess is Saaz, Noble or whatever).

rotaman14 (259) - Potsdam, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2015
Grass aroma. Sweetish, some metallic bitterness in the finish. Bland and boring, like so many brews from Weihenstephan. Is it the most overrated German brewery? Probably. Not saying that this style isn’t boring per se, but this one takes boring to a whole new level. The Helles from Ayinger for example managed to have a pleasant and appealing taste. This one doesn’t even achieve that.
