BEER INFO

Brewed by:
King Brewery
Ontario, Canada | website

Style: Munich Dunkel Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our authentic brewing technique, using only the finest imported Dark Munich Malt and Noble German Hops, gives this beer King’s trademark “true to style” aroma and flavour. This deliciously dark lager is red-brown in colour, with a thick tan coloured head and a rich, full palate. It delivers a complex yet clean bready taste with a hint of toasted chocolate, and leaves elegant lace lines to the bottom of the glass.

Extremely flavourful, balanced and refreshing, our Dark Lager can be truly appreciated from the very first taste.

on dark side of amber, an average microbrew. Hint of malty brown sugar aroma. Mid-sip hint of carmel and nuts and chocolate. Some toasting. Malt more than hops. Dry and sweet oil aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel. Less hints and more aggressive flavour,and more hops. At beer bistro summer tasting.

Clear, very attractive dark copper colour. Moderate head that settles down to between one-quarter and one-half inch and stays with the beer. A touch of broken lace.

Nose full of malt and grain. Slight honey sweetness, some grapefruit(?). Pleasant aroma.

Mouthfeel is somewhat dry, a touch acerbic. Hops come across as somehow sour and unpleasantly bitter in this one.

Looks good, smells good, but doesn't quite measure up tastewise. I'm a little let down 'cause I really enjoy this brewery's Pilsner. Too bad, so sad.
