Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 46: Weihenstephaner Tradition Bayrisch Dunkel

Last one from Weihenstephaner. Not a wheat beer this time.

Weihenstephaner Tradition Bayrisch Dunkel

Pours a very dark, cloudy reddish brown with a small, tan head that fades fast to leave some lacing on the surface.

First Sip: Toasted grainy malt, with a little caramel in there. There is a mild hops that lingers on the back of the tongue. Nice, smooth mouth feel with a crisp, dry finish.

This beer has a much stronger taste compared to the previous two from Weihenstephaner, and even though it has that whole beery yummyness, it's not as yummy as the others. This isn't a weissbier -- I think I was expecting one and this is affecting my judgement.

Even so: Yummy beer.
