COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dedollewaitor (15905) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2008
50cl bottle: Pours dark brown with a creamy white lasting head. Aroma is sooo classic dunkel-like. Lots of caramel/toffee & breadish. Light roasted with hints of sugar. Medium bodied - good mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable dunkel.

TrefwoordPunk (1095) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a dark brown with a small head and a malty aroma. The taste is a bit sourish, with malts, dark chocolate (only the bitterness, not the sweetness) and some not-that-sweet fruits. This isn’t a bad beer, but weihenstephaner can do much better

villevav (458) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Aroma: caramel, bread . Appearance: brown, clear. Medium body, lively. A very nice dunkel. I wonder if this beer is actually the same beer as Hofbrau München Dunkel, because it is actually brewed by HB.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured mahogany with a decent sized; rocky, off-white head which was average lasting. Aroma had strong notes of black currents and tart blackberries with some sweet toffee malts hiding beneath as well as some cranberries somewhere in the mix. Flavor was a light bitterness with sweet toffee malts, sultana’s, blackberries and a dry nutty finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation, a quite watery texture and a ok finish.

masto (77) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2008
Dark brown with beige head. Roasty caramel, chocolate, malty aroma. Some hop bitterness in the malty, chocolate taste. Dry slightly sour finish. Annoying carbonation (typical to the brewery) almost spoils this otherwise good and balanced product.
