An inviting, opulent crown of foam adorns the beer; the light-bodied malt flavor is complemented by a superb, floral hop aroma.

Flavor / Color

Weihenstephaner - Bierfakten

Our aromatic pilsner possesses a delicate malt flavor combined with a fine bitterness, derived from the highest quality hops from the Hallertau at a refreshing 30 IBU. The first impression on the palate is pleasant and satisfying, followed by the balanced bitterness and aroma of the hops, which is more floral than tart; with its luminously golden yellow color, this an impeccable example of a traditional Bavarian Pils.
