Weihenstephaner Pils has a thick, stark-white, crackling head, a clear, straw appearance, with some sediment chunks and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sharp, slightly syrupy malt, and a sweet white bread. Taste is the same, with a grassy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Weihenstephaner Pils finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

nickd717 (4365) - Sofia, BULGARIA - DEC 3, 2016
33cl bottle. Brilliant clear yellow-golden with a lacy white head. The aroma is nice, grassy, crisp, some hay, black pepper, bread, and honey notes. The flavor is very crisp and polished with a great grassy/peppery hop kick, otherwise dry. Pretty light and crisp on the feel, but not watery. Very drinkable. This should be rated better. It is a top-tier pilsner, as Id expect from this brewery. Exactly on point for the style, just very well done and flavorful. People must not be getting fresh bottles or something.

TedE (1106) - 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.
