TBone (18558) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2010
Bottled (Alko, BB 04/2011)
Clear golden color, small white head. Buttery, grainy and cardboardish malty aroma. Flavor is also slightly buttery. Front is boring harsh, malty, even papery with herbal notes. Then aftertaste has nice tickling bitterness. I expected a bit from Weihenstephan. This is just "ok".

rosenbergh (11946) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2010
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with big frothy white head. Malty earthy aroma with grassy hoppy notes. Flavour is grassy hoppy with grainy malty and earthy notes. Quite basic German Pils, definitely not bad but nothing to die for either. I think Weihenstephaner is at best in Weißbiers.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle 0,5 l. The usual golden yellow, fizzy head. Nose has malts, bread, some unidentifiable hoppiness, maybe some hay. Flavor is harshly and strangely hopped, not bitter at all, harhsly malty and bready with some cereal. Not a good pils, but not really a bad one either. No crisp hop bite to be found here.

TET (3280) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2010
Light yellow beer with big and white head. Aroma is fresh, lot of grass, malts and barleyfield. Malts, some sweetness with grassy medium bitterness in the flavour. Medium bodied with quite high carbonation, still nice to drink. Fresh, pure and balanced pils; however, slightly boring.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 A clean, bready pilsner with a champagne-like malt-carbonation-bitterness balance. A firmer hop character would make this legendary.

Bubbling, clear, straw hue underneath a thick, white meringue. Honey, baguette and muskmelon aromatics combine sweetly. Pleasantly dry with a crisp acidity and softly prickling bitterness. Medium-light body, slick texture and buzzing carbonation. 50 cl bottle, best before 13.04.2011.

shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Tap. Creamy malt and grassy hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with nice head. Moderately bitter grass hops with light creamy malt finish. Unique hop forward German Pils.

Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2010
Draught. High creamy lasting white head. Clear yellow body. Good barley malt aroma. Highly carbonated fairly bitter barley malt flavor with a nice dry note. Long aftertaste.

jonno (3012) - JAPAN - APR 10, 2010
Not as crisp and hoppy as I was hoping for. Premium euro lager with not much going on. Considering the rest of the range from weihen this was a let down. Give me a ever anyway.

Habanero (4911) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Cask. Golden, clear body with a nice, creamy white head. Nose of light malt and hops. Flavour with hops, grass and notes of soft malt and citrus. Medium to light bodied. Pleasant mild, bitter finish. Crisp but not the best Weihenstephaner.

TheDog (587) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2010
On tap at Die Kleine Bierstube Århus. Golden clear colour with nice white head. Aroma and taste of hops, grain, grass and a bit citrus. Bitter but pleasant finish. One of the best german pilsners.
