I wish I could have drank this on better terms, but we were forced to drink this because my friend accidently grabbed this one and not the hefeweizen. This is a very typical european lager. It is flavorful, very malty and quite bitter. i don’t know why you’d buy this when the Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen is available. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest, Jacksonville, FL, 3 June 2006. An OK German lager. Typical lager flavor, drinkable but not great. Many notches below their weissbeer in quality and enjoyment. vanvenlo (1901) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2006
5 Apr 2006 - Sweet full malt hop aroma. Yellow colour, ordinary head and lacing. Sweet hoppy touch of spice and light malt flavour. Malty hop finish and light bitterness. User37895 (3042) - - JUN 1, 2006
Enjoyed their weissbeer, but this one wasn’t so good. It tasted like Warsteiner with a grassy aroma and aftertaste. Cloudy yellow appearance with some citrus detectable. No head and lacing gone by the second sip. Since this is from the world’s oldest brewery, it’s possible that my bottle was from 1040. Label read "Original Lager."

Hop malt aroma. Murky yellow colour with poor head and lacing. Sweet malt hop flavour Fizzy palate.

Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of bread dough, cookie malt, and toasted pale malt. Taste is bready, cookie, with a very clean lager finish. A little bit of Hallertau bitterness to round things out makes this is a solid lager. Mouthfeel is medium (full) bodied with lively carbonation. madquacker (1162) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2006
Outstanding in its simplicity. A wonderfully balanced beer. Highly recommended. peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Active golden body with a white soap head. Nose is strong with lemon, hallertau and clove. A pleasent, active mouth blends an immediate hoppiness with sweet yeast notes and banana. Supprising yeasty notes for a kristal. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Very distinct Bavarian flavor. Very satifying and drinkable. If your looking for a simple German Lager, this is ideal. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2006
500ml bottle. Clear, dull golden, grassy hue. Bubbling body with white head. Apples and citrus in the nose. Medium bodied and super lively. Sweet and smooth. Mildly dry with a short stint of a bitter hop flavor. As it warms, the bitterness starts to shine through. Still lively with a slight caramel sweetness. Slight grainy flavor. Honey note. Finish is smooth with a short lived smokey bitter bite.
