Tap @ Weihenstephan Br�ust�berl. Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma had DMS and hints of grassy hops. Flavor had DMS, grassy hops and breadish malt. Finished dry and bitter. Clearly off.

Tap at Weihenstephaner Bräustüberl - Hazy pale yellow color with nice white head. Very fresh, hoppy, bitter and dry. Heaven. A Pils to tell your grandchildren about. Couldnt it be more widely available?

My Bottom Line:
Beautiful pils malts offer depth and comfort, as bright herbal hops dig into agile sugars to build just enough bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty blond.
-All flavors are clearly expressed.
-Balance is achieved.
-Drinkability is as high as you can imagine.
-Yet another excellent brew from Weihenstephaner!

On tap at the brewery restaurant in Freising.

Keg @Weihenstephan Braustüberl, Freising. 03-08-2016.
An earthy lager. Ends sweet. Herbal nose. Grainy sweet, a bit more bitter than usual in german lagers. german hops nose (Hallertau?). Pours little hazy bright gold with frothy white head.

On tap at The Braustuberl. Freising. Pale gold slight haze lasting white head. Cereal aroma with lemon hop. Decent mouthfeel and carbonation is perfect. The finish is herbal fresh hop flower. Some mineral. Awesome.

On tap at the braustuberl. Yellow color, slightly hazed, big thick rocky white head. Malty aroma, hay, herbal hops, earth, some dough. Taste balanced, light bitterness, carbonated, medium body, clean finish fairly dry even smooth. Nice smooth pils.

Tap at the brewery. Hazy bright gold with a tall, fine head. Lovely nose of doughy bread, crackers, herbs, lemon and a bit of yeast. Herbal and bitter hops, lemon, fresh baked bread. A touch doughy, then a prickly finish. Lovely.

Tap: A thin, weak, plain lager; wouldn't call it a Pilsener. Food Pairing: Brezen

On draft at the Weihenstephan Bräustüberl up the hill in Freising. I was told by a couple of the former students at Weihenstephan that this was the beer to get here. We were not disappointed. Pour was cloudy, nice head that was well-retained. Smell is German noble hop with some light malt. Taste was balanced with malt and hops intermingling with a great balance. My favorite beer of the many dozens tasted on a recent trip to Germany.

jonno (3025) - JAPAN - MAR 25, 2015
Oh. yes. Big noble hop hop and straw nose. Smooth, lightly carbed body. Big clicky hop moutfeel. Dry finish. Great pils on tap at the W. A big step up from the bottled, travelled version.
