Light dull mahogany color. Sweet aromas of flint, red apple, dried figs and pineapple, curry, and malted milk ball with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, cheery wilted spinach, fresh green beans, and orange sauce finish. An easy-drinking lager with a savory backbone.

Dark lagers (also known as Dunkel or dunkel-style lagers) range in color from dark brown to black and range in alcohol from 4.5-5.5%. At their best, these beers combine the dryish chocolate or licorice notes associated with the use of dark roasted malts and the roundness and crispness of a lager. Munich dunkel style lagers are also included in this category. These beers tend to be fuller-bodied with a hint of bready sweetness to the palate, a characteristic of the typical Bavarian malts used. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail Session Black Premium Dark Lager, Hofbräu Dunkel and MOA Noir Dark.
