      Overall Impression (2½)
      Good clean mild beer. Andreas Praefcke provides an explanation for the somewhat misleading name of this beer:

      The somewhat misleading name of "Weiss-Gold" has a simple reason: "Weiss" was the brewer's name that invented this first beer brand in the Allgäu region in 1905. The brewery is still in possession of the Weiss family.
