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.

I've looked for a favorite beer and feel I have finally found it. Grate taste and a decent price for an import. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Bierkrug (2129) - - APR 12, 2011
500 ml bottle in Germany. Deep dark amber color. Clear. Medium lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Flavor is smooth. Slightly roasty and with notes of caramel/chocolate. Has a very soft, light-bitter aftertaste. A very fine dunkel.

Half liter @ Weihenstephaner. This one is an amazing dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but not too much, the hops save it and it turns into an easy-drinker.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 My Bottom Line:

Long Munich maltiness is endowed with toasted accents in this beautifully aromatic and drinkable Dunkel.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A slice of foam laces atop the dark brown shine.

-Mouthfeel is lean and bubbly, yet all malt flavors are given plenty of room to take over the palate.

-Hops offer but a mild bitterness, never taking room away from the malt showcase.

-A mild fruitiness adds raisins and cherries to the profile.

-The flavor profile is as polished as all other Weihenstephaner brews.



On tap at their restaurant in Freising.

Crystal clear brown-red colour with nice head and lacing down the glass. This beer is malt, malt, malt. The flavours really open up as the beer warms, with the dark, decocted malt flavour dominating. Hops are barely present. This is a delicious beer, and would almost be the perfect session beer. What lets it down in terms of a rating is that it is one-dimensional. Admittedly, that dimension is fantastic but this isn't the most challenging beer.
