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)".

On tap at the braustuberl. Light gold color, clear, big stable white head, good lacing. Aroma is straight forward helles, quite malty but unexpectedly bitter, there’s a good amount of bittering hops. Taste is balanced, slightly salty, bitter finish. Medium body, avg carbonation. Solid helles with a pilsener attitude.

ordybill (767) - 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.

malvrich (121) - durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2015
11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. Bottle date coded 0075 so the assumption is that this was bottled late Feb. 2015. Should be good theoretically until late this month at least. A: Poured very cold. 1" of bubbly white foam atop a crystal clear body with small amounts of visible carbonation. Lacing is light but noticeable all around the glass. S: Biscuit and cracker maltiness and the slightest floral hop note. Very subtle but delicious scent. T: Surprisingly, the hops are first to the palate with a sharp though still subtle bitterness. The malts follow with a crackery bite though without the authority they show in the nose. Delicious though hardly in your face. M: This is where this brewer’s beers usually shine though this one seems a bit restrained. Body is light and refreshing with creamy foam feeling. It begs for another sip. O: An excellent helles that is underrated IMO, though the $12/6 price is a bit prohibitive. I enjoy splurging on these from time to time. Can’t be beat as a hot day refresher.
