COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good beer takes its time. The long storage makes our yellow bright lager, “Original”, a flavourful beer enjoyed with fine pored, 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.

500 m l bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of honey, straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light straw and a hint of citrus with a crisp watery finish. Not what I expect from Weihenstephaner.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 500 ml bottle. Pale straw coloured beer, white head. The aroma is fairly grassy and fresh. Straw and pale malt with a soft noble hop character. Fresh, crisp and pretty tasty. Moderate bitterness. Excellent brew.

Very fresh (bottled within the last 30 days) from the Et Cetera restaurant in Freising. Pours a deep clear gold with noticable bubbles and slight white head. Medium body with even dry/sweet flavor balance, late hop bitterness.

This beer is and awsome eveyday drinker. Pours a light gold with white head. Aoma is of sweet malt and a little rice like. Taste is very refreshing and clean. Finish is clean.

There’s a solid maltiness to this beer. Fairly dry, it has that straw malt that I like in my pale lagers. A very tasty all-malt lager.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 After trying this once and being unimpressed, I have several months later revisited it. I don’t klnow what the explanation is, but this seems to me clearly to be an unequivocally all-round outstanding beer. It’s gold with a huge white head steadily shrinking to a permanent smaller head. It leaves very nice lace. The aroma is bread, honey, hints of pine, and light fruit, and overall extremely nice. The taste is wonderful, sublte, complex, balanced, with a lot of flavour and full, even body. It tastes of bread, pine, honey, hints of lemon, sweetish with light bitterness. It is exceedingly drinkable and one of those beers that fits the definition, to me, of "beer."

BelgianBeerGal (4156) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Bottle poured into pint glass. Rather average beer. Clear goulden colour with good carbonation but no real head. Aroma is faint grain and the flavour is thin with more grain. Not bad, just average.

An alright looking yellow with a foamy quickly diminishing head. Sweet malt and ammonia nose. It has a tart sour mash kind of taste with an after taste that reminds me of the smell of silage witch is a combination of ground alfalfa, corn and stalks fermented. Lets just say, it tastes like it might have turned.

25oz bottle. mildly cloudy pale yellow color. medium white head. goes away in a couple of mins. sweet malty, wheat, wet forest smell. light fruity malt taste. quick to disappear on the palate. barely any after taste. crisp and fresh. i can dig it!

2.9
Ron (4183) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Golden in color with almost no head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and citrus. The flavor is weak citrus, sweet malts, with a thin palate. Not their best brew by far, but inoffensive.
