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.

Pours quite dark amber with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Buttery, caramel, licorice nose. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite sweet, caramel, toffee, little roasty notes.

jookos (6224) - FINLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle (alko). Amber reddish, clear appearance. Quite freshish malty, sort of autumnal red dried berries, some nuttyness, dry, or dried, bittered toffee. Med bodied, easy drink, balanced. Malty. Not sure what to say. This is just an inch away from a boozy, or dull, eastern european amber lager. To be frank, blindly tasted, theres a 50-50 chance I wouldve just sniffed and dumped it. Respect the brewery tho. And aware of how shallow these ratings are. Glad to have given it the time, enjoy the clean, still kinda lively feeling maltyness.

bottle from Alko. medium, dry head head. a bit of Cracker Jack and toffee on the nose. at first sip, an almost sweet nutty flavor with a malty aftertaste. a bit of bitterness at the end that sticks around maybe a little longer than i’d like. an almost imperceptible hop flavor

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin vaalean kolanruskeana ja kirkkaana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on leipäistä (paikoin paahdettua ruisleipää, paikoin limppua) maltaisuutta, luumuisuutta, maamaisuutta sekä makeaa hieman paahteista sokerisuutta. Maussa hivenen paahteinen sokerisuus on vahvinta, pähkinääkin on reippaasti. Limppuisuus kummittelee taustalla pienen luumuisuuden kanssa. Pääasiassa makeahko maltaisuus leimaa makua Suutuntuma on makeahko, keskitäyteläinen miinus ja humalaa ei kovin paljoa ole. Harvoin itse juomani tyyli, mutta sopii maltaisuudessaan hyvin syysiltaan. Hyvin tehty, mutta tyyli on hieman mielenkiinnoton, mikä näkyy pisteissä.

500ml bottle into weizen glass. Glowing copper colour beer with fulsome white head. Fine steady carbonation. Sweet grainy nose. Thin flat mouthfeel. Finish is stale bread with a little honey. Basically, a dark malty lager.
