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.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 Bottle 500ml. Very enjoyable. Aroma is malty, butterscotch. Looks are ok, clear brown colour with a head that doesn’t last. Flavour is sweet throughout, with some bitterness at the end. Duration is above average. Medium body and dry.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 On-tap. A - Deep copper amber color with an average to slightly below average sized head that is off-white, foamy, and a bit creamy. Decent retention with a nice lace left over. S - A good amount of toasted grainy malts and some caramel and toffee. T - A lot like the smell. A lot of toasted, grainy malt taste upfront make up the base. Also a good amount of caramel and toffee. Hints of some fruit, a bit of apple and some raisin. On the finish is just the slightest taste of some grassy and earthy hops along with some bread taste. M - Somewhere between light and medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp taste and somewhat smooth. D - Easy to drink beer that is well balanced and has a good amount of malt flavors. Notes: Nice easy to drink beer that is a touch light on flavor and mouthfeel. Good session type of beer, and a solid beer from a very solid brewery.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2011
Dark brown and small off white head; like a coke. Aroma is quite mild, with brown bread, tomato, cheese, malts. More a focus on drinkability but still enough flavour to satisfy. Pleasant balanced and underwhelming taste. Not a great amount of character yet a fine brew. Great quality for the price, too. (50cl bottle, 1,75 EUR)

It pours brown red, medium head (or low for a Weihenstephaner), mild sweet roast aroma. The taste reminds me of a black beer, not as sweet as other dunkels I’ve had, very easy to drink.

0.5l bottle. Deep ruby body, thin white head. Aroma of reisins, toast, roasted malts and brown sugar. Taste of reisins, caramel, toast and floral hops. I really like it.
