Very nice pale yellow color. Wonderful fluffy, yeasty head that stays through to the end leaving a nice "Belgian lace" in the glass.
Good hoppy, peppery nose with a light, sweet malt scent lingering in the background.
The taste of fresh hops and hints of lightly baked bread malt come together harmoniously in the flavors. A very good beer indeed! My favorite, actually, from this brewery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into pilsener glass, bottled on 4/24/2012. Pours almost crystal clear golden straw color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a nice amount of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of apple, pear, bready grain, grass, floral, and herbal spiciness. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good strength; very pleasant. Taste of pear, apple, bready grain, pepper, floral, grass, herbal spiciness, and slight sulfur as it warms. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apple, pear, pepper, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor balance, with good complexity and fullness of flavor. Medium carbonation and body; with a very nice crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Extremely easy to drink as expected. Overall this is an all around excellent pilsner. Great flavor balance and smoothness; with a nice crisp and flavorful finish. Weihenstephaner just knows how to nail a classic German style.

On tap under the name Edel-Pils. Clean aroma of pale malt and faint noble hops, just a hint of sulfur as well. Perfectly clear yellow color - I could read the newspaper through this beer, thin white head. Wonderfully balanced flavor of pure malt and hop bitterness. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. The ultimate lawnmower beer. If you can get this on tap, do not pass it up.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 A clean, bready pilsner with a champagne-like malt-carbonation-bitterness balance. A firmer hop character would make this legendary.
Bubbling, clear, straw hue underneath a thick, white meringue. Honey, baguette and muskmelon aromatics combine sweetly. Pleasantly dry with a crisp acidity and softly prickling bitterness. Medium-light body, slick texture and buzzing carbonation. 50 cl bottle, best before 13.04.2011.

Appearance: bright clear gold, no bubbles, one finger of electric white, foamy head, sticky, generous lace. Aroma: clean, bready malts over freshly mown grass, drying hay, and dandelion fluff. Taste: lightly peppery, with notes of white bread, crackers, grass, and a hint of citrus. Finish: smooth, crisp, clean, and delicately bitter. Notes: This was exactly what I expected from a Weihenstephaner pilsner, which is suprisingly hard to find in my area, as I’ve seen just about everything else. Frankly, it’s a superlative pilsner. Perfectly balanced. Incredibly drinkable. Tastes like late spring and early summer. I could drink a bazillion of these.

Clear straw with bit sparkling and thick but short white head. Light aroma has grain, light hoppiness and bit fruit. Light body, semidry, light feel, malty flabor has also grain, finish is medium long, dry and grainy. Good lager, easy to drink, pure example of what lager should taste like.

Got this right off the boat, this is the first time that this has been imported into the US. Clear golden color, nice foam retention. The taste is quite sweet for a Pilsener, much sweeter than say Bitburger. Good malty aftertaste, but I miss the hops bite from it. An excellent Helles Lager, but not much of a PIlsener. Still, a very high quality beer.

One of the best Pilsners ever I have tried. Great balance on hops and malts.
