Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin bubbly head. Has a floral fragrance. Hop tasting on the front but more bitter on the finish. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JuanCC (64) - 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 (1145) - 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 (663) - 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

Aromas of hay and apple juice. Taste is apple juice, straw, some banana peel. A nice bready finish kicks in, followed by a honey sweetness and grassy hops.

ronaldtheriot (1880) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Weihenstephaner Pils has a thick, stark-white, crackling head, a clear, straw appearance, with some sediment chunks and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sharp, slightly syrupy malt, and a sweet white bread. Taste is the same, with a grassy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Weihenstephaner Pils finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT
