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.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2012
On tap at the Pilgrim Hotel in Soest – Westphalia, Germany in the Pilgrim Hotel’s own glassware where it has a clear deep amber body supporting a full tall mocha like head. The faint aroma offers up vague glimpses of dark fruity esters and little else. The taste is slightly punchy with carbonation and it unveils some caramel malts, a hint of roasted malts and then growing into a mild level of prune and plum like sweet dark fruity esters. Nice flavor that went well with the meal.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle @ Weihenstephaner, Freising. Clear, dark red brown appearance with a tan head. Fairly mild, a touch fruity, a bit nutty aroma. A bit toasty grainy malty, light fruity cracker flavor. Not bad but a bit disappoint=ing.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2012
Poured a clear brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. There wasn’t much on the nose. The taste is driven by malts, with some dried fruit and caramel characters coming through. Carbonation is pretty light. The body is solid, but this is very easy drinking. Could definitely go for another.
