The aroma is the definition of a pilsener with grassy hay like hops and pale malts. The appearance is gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall one of the better pilseners on the market.

500ml Keg at Weihenstephaner Beer Hall, Berlin (4.60):
Another excellent beer from Weihenstephan and up there with some of the best pilsners Ive tried, mainly due to the fact that the beer looked good and had an excellent palate; the taste and nose werent bad either but nothing was really a standout from them. The beer was incredibly easy to drink with an excellent balance from the start and some nice sweetness at times that worked well with the subtle bitterness that featured throughout the beer. Its a beer that could probably have benefited from being just a touch stronger, particular with the nose but it was very pleasant from the start and one that Id definitely have again.

Bottle pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Aroma of sweet semibready malt with light german hops. Sweet beery malt, honey, caramel, light hop bitterness. Pretty average German macro.

JuanCC (74) - Valencia, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2017
Botella en 99Cervezas. Color amarillo plido, completamente transparente y muy brillante. Espuma blanca y abundante, de burbuja muy pequea y aspecto cremoso. Buena carbonatacin, con pequeas burbujas subiendo desde el fondo durante bastante tiempo (casi como si fuera un cava). La espuma presenta persistencia y adherencia medias. Intensidad suave en nariz, donde mandan las notas de pan fresco. Algo de manzana amarilla al fondo y un punto muy tnue de pltano. Quiz algo de clavo y algunas notas ligeramente herbales. Complejidad media-baja, aunque notable para ser una lager clsica. De entre los sabores predomina el dulzor, presente pero suave, que viene acompaado de una amargor an ms ligero (pero igualmente evidente). El retrogusto hace salir al pltano para que acompae al pan blanco. El ligero amargo residual evita que el dulzor resulte empalagoso. Ligera en boca y algo frizante, Aunque redondeada en boca por causa del dulzor, lo que para algunos paladares podra resultar ligeramente empalagosa. A pesar de ello, es notablemente refrescante. Esta cerveza es la versin premium de la receta ms clsica del estilo ms extendido en el mundo: Pilsner. Siempre es un placer beberla. Adems, es una cerveza perfecta como iniciacin al mundo de las cervezas, ms all de las marcas industriales habituales. Y el hecho de que se trate de la cervecera ms antigua del mundo (que pueda demostrarlo) le aade un extra de inters.

biir (1197) - Berlin, - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle from Beerbaboon - clear golden color with white head. Taste is straw, malts, some faint hops. not very bitter. the taste of their perfect "Unfiltriertes" shines through here and there but to be honest this is only a well-made but average pils.

M_Sack (667) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Clear straw with big attractive white head. A touch of banana initially, followed by wheat, biscuit and almonds. Reasonably bitter, spicy hops with a good biscuit malt backing. Refreshing beer without being at the level of most Weihenstepher's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
