Golden-yellow and bright, with 32 bitter units and quite hoppy compared to most of the other Pilsners our Weihenstephaner Pilsner comes up with a distinctive aroma of hops with a pleasant bitterness. This combination provides a balanced mix and guarantees great enjoyment. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Bottle. Clear bright golden with a frothy bright white head. Malty and bready with firm but lowish metallic bitterness, really only come to realize the full force of it in the aftertaste. Good if slightly soapy hops here, and as good for volume drinking as their Helles. Medium-full body.

TedE (1011) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2016
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Crystal clear pale amber beer with large crown of foam and fine steady carbonation. Laces well. Sweet wheat nose with just a hint of peppery grain. Surprisingly flat mouthfeel. Slight sweet grain taste which becomes more bitter and grainy into the finish. Almost tastes like rye bread by the end. Looks magnificent, nice refreshing pils.

Zlotta (2255) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’El Drapaire de la Cervesa Artesana’. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-floral and quite grassy aroma of fresh grass, citrus and some grains. A bit sweetish, slightly grainy, fruity-grassy and a bit floral taste of fresh grass, citrus and some grains, followed by a short, moderately bitter, quite grassy finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

Cristobal37 (812) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2016
Strong hoppy pasteurized lager aroma. Really fine balance of malt n hops. Fantastic German pils, easily one of the best Ive had yet. Prefer the others from Weihenstephan but have to hand it to them this is a great example of the style.
