Poured into a Weihenstephan glass, the bright white head is of good stature, and leaves plenty of lace on the sides of the glass as it settles to a smooth carpet over several minutes. The brew is a very clear honey yellow color, with active carbonation keeping the head replenished all the way through to the last sip.
The aroma, while light, is a pleasant mix of grassy hops and light grain.
This is a quintessential beer of beers. Very smooth in the mouth, the ample carbonation melds hops and grain into a mellow, traditional lager. Dry, with a slightly fruity tang, it can be drunk just for the pleasure of experiencing a classic brew, or it can easily accompany any meat & potatoes type dish, from pretzels to pork chops. A lager of this caliber enhances the flavor of food without overpowering it.

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!
