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.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Draft @ Taco Mac Kennesaw. Overall impression was good for an easy drinking lager, but the weakest of the Weihenstephaner lineup that I’ve had. Pours as crystal clear golden color with with short lasting head. Smell is light grassy, grains and very mild hop aroma. Taste is much the same with straw as well. Decent session lager.

Butelka 0,5l pite w domu. Kolor złoty, klarowne, piękna piana osiadająca na szkle. Aromat słodowy z nutami chmielu. W smaku słodkawe, lekko trawiaste, dobre nagazowanie , goryczka średnia, bardzo dobre piwo.

einherjar (411) - Rijeka, CROATIA - AUG 26, 2017
Pale golden color, medium white head. Malt, grass, smooth body, light sour, mild hops. Not coo complex flavour, but refreshing and very balanced, perfect for everyday beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with medium-sized head. Citrus fruits, hay, some bread, slightly metallic, hoppy. Medium bitterness, crisp. Nicely carbonated. Light bodied. Bitter finish. Fresh and refreshing Helles.

wvhoran (477) - Tasmania, - AUG 7, 2017
Pale straw colour with a firm head. Classic aroma. Lean and dry, malty, very good, lacking slightly in the flavour and finish as it could be crisper.

PietS (325) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2017
Sweet malty, grainy, a touch of bitterness. Nice weissen, but not very adventurous.

tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2017
Served on tap. Very clear straw colour. Thin, medium-lasting, white foam. Light malty aroma. Malty flavour which tends to excessive sweetness. Light bitterness. The low body, the low carbonation and the 5.1% Abv make it very easy to drink. A summer beer, but nothing remarkable.

3.4

28-06-17 // 330ml bottle. Clear golden beer, small white head. Mild grainy malty aroma. Taste is clean and crisps, cereal grainy, mild floral hop.

@ In de Buurt - Zwolle. Nice beer from the famous Weihenstephaner brewery. Clear, fresh taste with some malts. Just okay and fine.

3.3
DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 13, 2017
Pale gold with a thin white head. Light malt aroma with a faint grassiness. Dry malty flavor with moderate bitterness and peppery finish. Light bodied almost watery. Very drinkable though seems a bit light for style.
