look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Reviewed January 1, 2012. Poured a 330 mL bottle into a flute glass.

A: Poured a clear golden straw yellow with a one fingered creamy head.

S: This is oddly one of the strongest grassy smells I've taken in from a beer. Reminds me of a white wine. A green apple taste comes through quite nicely with a bit of hay & grains on top. I honestly quite enjoy this smell.

T: Sweet grassy bread-like qualities comes through. There is a dash of spice thrown in which makes it that much better. The grasslike quality is oddly my favorite thing of this drink.

M: This goes down nice and smooth. This carries nice due to its carbonation.

O: This fits the style of a Munich Helles Lager quite nicely. I never really was a fan of this style, but with the grassiness that this gives it's quite beautiful. I love nature in my drinks: oak, pine, and grass. This will be something that I will like if I could find it in large quantities.

On tap @ Library Alehouse.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades to the rim leaving spotty lace.

N: Grainy, yeasty, faint lemon citrus, grassy/hay, spring freshness.

T: Mostly follows the nose while being crisp and nicely clean.

M: Light body and semi-medium carbonation. Smooth, yeasty and grassy finish.

O: Easy drinking. I have to ask myself, self - why haven't you had this before???

Poured Weihenstephaner Original into a mug.

A - Pours a bright clear golden with a finger of white head.

S - Some light bread, biscuit, malts. Faint hops and some skunk.

T - Light malts, more bitter hops in there as well. Mid palate getting more bread and light malt flavors. On the aftertaste just a pinch of bitter hops comes through.

M - Smooth with medium carbonation with medium to light mouthfeel.

O - A good Helles. Enjoy! Cheers!
