    I don't get this mass marketing of Bud light in the UK, no one here is going to drink it.

    Hearing that it's only 4.2%, that certainly won't go down well. Proper daft.

    That seems high tbh, would have guessed in the low 3s

    Did more research and it is in fact 3.5%, I am shocked and appalled

    Big fan of Rum, especially any cocktails that involve it (real men drink cocktails) or don't mind it with a bit of Coke.

    So I'm enjoying one of these atm.
    I guess it's a seasonal release or something, not really sure as the local shop called it "limited release".

    I'm a huge fan of Weihenstephaner beers in general and their regular Hefeweissbier is my personal favorite, so I had to give this one a go.

    Overall, it's tastes pretty much exactly like the original one except maybe a bit lighter. But even though it tastes a bit lighter, it packs a serious punch at 7.5% ABV. :open_mouth:

    It's a great beer, and if you are a fan of their stuff and have never tried it is worth it for sure, but I still think I prefer the original one just by a tad because it has a bit more flavor and a better mouth feel. :)

    @maxwms have you ever tried this? :)

    Can't stand bottled\canned beer. Too many places here hold Tuborg\Carlberg as their only daft beers and it pains me :'(

    Why not bottles or cans?

    @HolgerBadstuber Can't explain. They usually don't taste as good as draft to me and the end always makes want to puke! Bottles are 100% fine if I am sitting at the beach with friends or at a friend's house but not at a pub/bar :/

    @ColeWorld sorry for the super late reply, I haven't been checking this thread as regularly as I should.
    Anyways, yes I had the Vitus around Christmas time but it was about my 5th beer of the night so can't really recall how it was. :joy:

    I was just in the mood for a pilsner but this one is meh. It's a typical pilsner but nothing special.
    I'm not a big fan of the the style on the whole, so maybe it's good for people who enjoy those sorts of beers, but for me it was just average.
    I would probably give it a 7/10.

    @ColeWorld are you German?
    If so, may I ask which is your favorite beer out of any of them? :)
    I just finished that, and am about to have one of, if not my personal favorite beer. :)

    Nothing will ever beat this for me. :love:

    Yes, I am. My favorite pilsener is a regional one so it's not so popular here.

    But tbh I like Weissbier much more. My favorite is the Weihenstephaner Vitus and the normal one. But I also like Paulaner.

    I was at the Surly brewery today, it was great! :)
    A lot of people outside the Midwest of the US and people in Europe may not know about it, but it's amazing!

    I think I've posted some photos on here before of Surly beer, but if not I would encourage anyone and everyone to find out if they sell it at a place near you.

    I must say that I'm not, and never will be into the whole "craft beer" scene and still believe that beers from Munich are the best. However, Surly brews some pretty darn good stuff overall.
    From their Cynic which starts off like Hefeweissbier and finishes like an ale, to their trademark Furious or Axe Man, which are citrusy and hoppy. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and beer. :)

    I was skeptical but it wasn't too cucumbery.
