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.

Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Pale golden yellow, foamy white head. Smells of grain and maybe some malt. Taste of wheat/hay. Good beer.

tonyferrari (9) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2017 does not count
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.

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.

nathanvc (507) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2017
On tap at Weihenstephaner, Hackescher Markt, Berlin. Pours clear light yellow with a minimal white head. The aroma contains malt, grain, hops and yeast. It tastes light bitter to light malty sweet, with a grainy finish. Softly fizzy carbonation, slick texture, very quenching. Good.

Jabic (590) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Ar: Pronounced fine noble hop aroma--peppery, dried leaves; crackery maltiness, with a cucumber hint; slight sulfur. Ap: Straw yellow with the slightest hint of amber-gold; crystal clear; medium white head, sticky and foamy, leaving a trail of lace and a cap of froth. T: Cracker maltiness up front; clean fermentation profile; mild sweetness and deeper toast notes come in next; grassy with some minerality; finish is chalky and grassy, slight cucumber; bitterness is medium-low, but firm. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Very nice lager; well-presented notes of malt, hops, and water throughout, with a nice, clean lager character; spectacular presentation of noble hop aromas and flavors; hints of toast lend a subtle depth to the malt character. .

500 ml bottle. Brassy gold color topped by a large dense rocky white head. Pleasant malty aroma. Sharp tasty light malt flavor is balanced nicely by a crisp dry grassy hop finish. Clean and straight forward. Easily drinkable.
