BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany
weihenstephaner.de

Style: Munich Helles Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A good beer takes its time. The long storage makes our yellow bright lager, “Original”, a flavourful beer enjoyed with fine poured, white foam. With a mild hoppy note and its pleasant fresh spicy taste, it goes very well with salads, poultry, stews or with a hearty snack. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

I love this beer and glad it is readily available in the Cleveland area. I have a good friend who was skeptical, but is now a believer as well. As member Ohiolager said - "move over Hofbrau". Hofbraus is good too, but this beer is my pick at the moment.

Smell: Light crisp bread like malts

Appearance: Golden and clear.

Taste: Much like the smell. Light and crisp with delicious bread like malts. Just the lightest kiss of hops. Extremely drinkable.

Mouth feel: Very nice. Prickly carbonation.

Overall: Just an outstanding lager. Extremely thirst quenching and a perfect example of style. No wonder this beer has been pleasing drinkers since 1040.

L - flawless. The clearest dark straw I have ever seen with creamy frothy head.

S - wow. Potent rich bready yeasty classic Bavarian beer

T - stellar. So much flavor into so a light drinkable beer. Extremely bready with a ridiculously light but assertive bite back from the hops.

M - I've use "creamy" before but damn, this beer epitomizes it. I almost don't feel the carbonation yet it's ANYTHING but flat.

O - as my 571the beer rating and probably 800th beer I've clearly been chasing too many bourbon barrel stouts and fresh dipas. This is a case purchase in the future.
