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)".

thirstyrabbit (1581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Straw yellow body, small head. Aroma has white bread crust and slightly spicy but generally unassuming German hops. Nice clean taste profile with smooth crisp malts resembling white bread. Finish has a well tweaked modest bitterness. A very good classic Helles, not much to add here.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo z mala piana dość jasnawym klarownym złocistym kolorze. Bardzo delikatne w zapachu kwiaty nagietka mi się kojarzyly. Smak delikatny, nieskomplikowany piwo tzw "pijalne" a wiec już jest to dla mnie minusem. Oczekiwania mialem sporo większe po Weihenstephan. Chyba wczesniejsza wersja przed zmiana nazwy mogla by być lepsza. Pozatym to nie mój styl

Douberd (3999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
(Weihenstephaner Original Helles) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a lager glass, ABV 5.1% Deep golden yellow colour on the body,crystal clear of course, with a small and thick white head on top. Quite good retention. Aroma of fresh grass, light malts, faint hops. Taste of bread, malts, dust, grass. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side but not annoyingly so. Okay beer.

0,5 l NRW-Flasche aus dem Brauereiladen in Weihenstephan. Goldgelb, klar mit reichlich Kohlensäure und einer cremigen Schaumkrone, starkes lacing. Riecht frisch, nach Weizen. Im Geschmack angenehm süßlich

King_Alex_II (920) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Clear golden color with foam layer. Smells like wet grains. The taste is well balanced, fitting carbonation, light bitterness in the finish and everything. However I don’t like the wet grain taste and aftertaste of the malt.

ElDesmadre (2777) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Draught. Clean, light malt profile, grainy. Light sweetish, very subtle bitterness. Drinkable but also far from being characterful.

HuskerTan (1272) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle. A- Corn, grains, malty. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, grains, straw, slightly sweet, crisp. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- I think this one explains itself. While it’s not something I’d seek out, it was good for what it was and I can appreciate it for that. Not my thing but far from being bad.

GenDV138 (4591) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2015
12 oz bottle at a friend’s house. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of wheat and malt. Tastes of wheat, malt, light skunk and citrus. Light body with a dry finish.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is slightly husky and grainy without a hop presence. The flavor is pretty bland and boring, grainy and slightly resembling cardboard in a way. Light bodied and very fizzy with a bland flabby malt finish. About what was expected.

Calisky (2169) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2015
Couleur dorée, mousse qui disparait. Nez malté, et note légume. Gout malt d’orge, houblonné et note de paille. Moyenne
