Our reddish brown dark lager “Tradition” with its mild aroma of hops smells like roasted malt and impresses with its sweet caramel flavor which is followed by a slight bitterness. Goes well with hearty dishes, such as roasts, poultry and game. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
50cl bottle from the brewery. Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight reddish hue. inch thick, creamy and frothy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet and bready caramels with a decent roast and some dark fruits. Flavor is similar. Decently roasted and bitter with a bready, somewhat sweet caramel backing. A few dark fruits and a touch of oxidation before this finishes dry and leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, active carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. Fairly roasty and bitter, but sweet enough to balance. Not bad.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle, beers of Europe. Pours a deep reddy mahogany colour. Sweet bready malt aroma, red berry flavours, fizzy palate, with a caramel and brown sugar. I think it gets better with progress, perhaps could do with a bit more body but otherwise another good beer from a fine brewery.

Grzesiek79 (4028) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Dobre, ale przyznam sie ze spodziewalem sie piwa sporo lepszego. Piwo jest dosc aromatyczne, zlozone w smaku, karmelowe, daktylowe i spokojnie ulagodnione na finiszu. Nut chmielnych nie ma ale wiadomo tu nie o to chodzi. Slodowo karmelowy smak jest tresciwy, a piana sredniej wielkosci ale w miare trwala.

Bottle 0.5l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. BBE 05032014. Colour is clear dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Dark fruits, raisins, nuts, hints of sweetness and roasted malts. Very fruity for a dunkel and definitely better than average dunkel.

Jur (468) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2012
Draughts @ Weihenstephaner Bierkeller, Berlin. Red copper colour, with white head. Not a heavy nose. Taste is hazelnut, caramels and a fairly dry and bitter finish. Normally not a fan of Dunkels, but like this one. Good session beer.
