Red oak color. Aromas of fresh paint, bitter orange peel, cola, cinnamon, allspice, and lime peel with a supple, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light body and a medium-length boiled peanuts, creamed corn, and toasted pumpernickel finish. A roasty lager for the table.

Dark Lager

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.
