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.

JorisPPattyn (9880) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2007
Beautiful brillant, dark ruby-amber; under creamy, brownish-amber head. Some caramel & quite a bit of chocolate in the nose. Ending on an aroma of garden herbs - and mineral water. Some sweet & dark malts, some bitterness, bit earthy, and a flavour of caramel. Certainly not overly sweet, but the MF is a bit too light & watery to be really pleasing. There is a sourishness too, bit fruity (as unripe raspberries), that I do like. Body is light - very much so. By no means a bad beer. But a little bit of mouthfeel, body, beef to the bones, might have been advisable.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2007
Bottle at the Hitchin Beer Festival. A dark caramel brown, with a decent head. Lots of malt and toffee in the nose. The flavour has loads of malt sweetness - tasted like liquid Shreddies breakfast cereal. Suprisingly light bodied and easy to drink, but doesn’t really offer very much.

Sucked down a litre of this at the Weihenstephan Biergarten in Freising. Second half of a day trip that started at Kloster Andechs. After the walk from the train station through the town and then up the hill to the campus Biergarten, this was more than welcome. Deep red color, almost brown, with a tan head. I’ve got to admit that I was not delicate with this beer. No swirling, no wafting. I chugged. And it was good. Smooth, chocolatey, some roastiness. Wiping off my chin with my shirt cuff....Ahhhhh.....

mazfln (116) - Florianópolis, BRAZIL - FEB 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Pours dark tawny in color. Medium beige head, not so good retention. Mild malty aroma, a little bit sweet. Taste is strong malt, a little roastness, and bitter-sweet. Resiny mouthfeel. There’s a little acidity in the aftertaste that makes it very refreshing. A well balanced dunkel. Very good! So bad it is expensive here in Brazil... :( Re-rating: it is a wonderful beer. I’m loving it more and more...

joanabarbosa (47) - Goiânia, BRAZIL - JAN 4, 2007
Pours dark-amber nicely color with a rich but faster head. Horny nose with roasted malt. Dry mouthfeel, slight bitterness with malty and sweet flavor. Light bitter afertaste. So good!

jerohen (2243) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2006
Bottled, 0.5 liter BB August 2006 (sampled december 2006). Clear amber brown coloured. Malts and fruit in aroma, some notes of port-wine. Sweet malty flavour with some notes one normally finds in aged trappist ales, i’m not sure how to describe it though. Very nice balance, lasting finish. Good beer.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2006
Smells of sweet dark bread. Brown colour, average thickness of the head. Taste of butter and cloves, very satisfying. Untunately the finish sort of stops in the middle.
