So, what did you think? I know your "grail" is Ayinger Jarhundert, Nico's is Edelstoff, Brandon's is Ur Krostizer... Weihenstephaner is mine 8-)

I have to admit I tasted a lot of beer the last time I was in Munich, and Weihenstephan, Augistiner, Andechser, and Ayinger stood a head above the rest.

Weihenstephan Original tastes great out of a fresh bottle, but is definitely different on draft. Not necessarily better or worse, but good to seek out for palette calibration. Of course this holds true for most beer...

Haha you and me both. I've liked all the helles I've tried that was good and fresh, except Spaten, but this stuff is just something special to me. Higher bitterness than some of the others, more hop flavor, and layer after layer of malt... I need to find some more now! The last sixer I got was old and oxidized, unfortunately

From December. Wish it was a bit fresher. The 0.5L bottles I've been getting are much fresher. Still a great beer.

I had some Warsteiner recently and really enjoyed it. I'm somewhere in the ballpark of Ur Krostizer, Radeberger, Warsteiner. I like a more robust Pilsner. Not quite as hoppy as Jever though (though I do like Jever).

Yea, I've had it out of the bottle and thought it was good but fresh on draft (at least fresh as can be in the US) I loved it.

Got my hands on a FRESH 500ml bottle. It was delicious. Hops are in the background, beer is dry yet has a hard candy sweetness, I can't really place. Its not really c25, but could be..its got me conflicted( c50??). Fresh lingering malt. Amazing.
