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.

JoeinDahlem (1479) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2008
Thanks to my man Philipp for this nice brew. Half-liter bottle pours a typical dark brown with decent beige head, receding to persistent layer. Even when chilled, beer offered a big, chocolate-malty nose. The flavor brought character, refreshment and balance... lightly sweet and bready maltiness, lightly roasted, lightly bitter. Plenty of flavor yet nothing sticks out. A touch on the fizzy side, but not overly so. A simple beer, but someone on the front end of it really knew what they were doing.

faroeviking (10664) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber-brown colour with a big well lasting off-white creamish head. Aroma of roasted caramel, soft roasty malt and some dark bread. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with roasty malt, roasty caramel, some bitter hops, bread and some brown sugar.

ekstedt (6668) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Deep copper with a medium off-white head. Caramelly malt aroma with notes of burnt sigar and earthy hops. Ligth to medium body. Well balanced with a dry finish.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2007
Pours a clear, iced-tea hue with a medium, foamy, white head. The aroma is bizarrely similar to iced tea as well. Sugary, a little toffee, very bready and grainy. Slim, earthy hops. Flavour is quite similar to the aroma; starts lightly sweet and grows drier with each sip due to moderate astringency. Medium-light body; watery texture; fizzy, annoying carbonation. Grainy, astringent, watery...not the best effort I’ve had from this brewery.

blackbock (132) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2007
A strong caramel aroma upon opening, good carbonation level which faded to slight lacing on the glass. Deep copper-red colour. Probably a slightly higher alcohol level than I expected, but clean on the palate. Body a little thin. This one was quite disappointing, I was expecting something bigger and better from the "älteste Brauerei der Welt."

From a .5L bottle, pours a clear dark brown color. with a lingering white head and lace. Medium body with a slightly dry Munich malt flavor and slightly chewy finish. Clean, OKAY.
