COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic Munich Dunkel Style Lager 4.8% alc./vol. King Brewery's newest addition is this authentic Munich-style Dark Lager. Using only the finest imported Dark Munich Malt and Noble German Hops, combined with brewing in our authentic German decoction brewhouse, gives this beer King's trademark "true to style" aroma and flavour. This delicious beer is red-brown in colour, with a thick tan coloured head. The palate is rich and full, delivering a clean bready taste with a hint of toasted chocolate, while sporting elegant lace lines to the bottom of your glass. This unique Dark Lager is complex yet clean. Enjoy it with all European continental style foods and cheeses, or just as a well deserved cold one. Extremely flavourful, balanced and deliciously refreshing, our Dark Lager has to be tasted to be appreciated!

Spab (2453) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2009
341 ml bottle from Beer Store. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Malty aroma with toffee and a light roastiness. Nice flavour with nuttiness, coffee, toffee and a pleasant, slightly bitter finish. The more I had of this, the more I liked it.

Gpnterojd (176) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2009
Found some old bottles in my garage. Surprisingly aromatic, it contains shades of rye bread, almonds and molasses. Taste has some chalkiness which may be due to the ridiculous temperature extremes involved in spending a couple of years in a garage. Still, there is an attractive hoppiness to accompany the roasted nuts, chocolate and wood flavours. Oddly dry mouthfeel -- although I was expecting worse, especially since one of its neighbouring bottles was still sealed yet only 3/4 full.

One of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Many trips will be made to King City (well actually Nobleton) to pick this gem up. Nice dark colour, opens with bitter coffee notes but finishes in a well balanced symphony of sweetnees! Nice caramel flavourings as well. Really nice!

33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Deep amber colour, velvetty head, caramel and faint roasted barley aroma. Sweet caramel apple flavor, roasted but subtle, nice mixed finish.

KingofCastle (205) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2009
bottle: Thanks to Lord Beamish for this one . . . this is what craft beer should be. Huge flavour & fresh tasting. I detect a coffee or bitter flavour upfront with a sweet finish. I immediately think of a sweet cola taste. This beer smells good as soon as you open the bottle and pour. Quality malts and hops are evident. Lacing is good. I think their ad says it best, Complex yet Clean. This is the way beer should be. I love Walkerville’s dark lager but this is a definite step up. Wow.

dangermoose (9) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008 does not count
I had this at beer bistro in Toronto. Served on draught. A dark brown lager that came with almost no head. Tasty overall with rich but not overpowering notes of coffee, earth and a black licorice finish. Overall, a really pleasant, tasty beer.

(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, nose with notes of dark bread and caramel. Malty taste with dark fruit, dark bread, caramel and a hint of prunes. Hardly exciting, but clean and fresh.
