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!

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pours deep copper with a thick foamy off white head. Sweet malty aroma with some wood smoke. Flavours are very earth with hints of molases and clovey cider. Old musty apple. Notes of minerals and salt in the finish. Interesting.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2004 Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Tasted at just above room temp. Colour is dark, matching the label description. Light thin white wispy head with very caramel sweet scent. Doesn’t feel like a lager, would be absolutely mediocre as an ale. But drinkable

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Orangy body with light beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Bitter sweet flavour. Too cloying at times. Decent though with some caramel hints.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
Looks like an Irish Ale. Red and thin looking. Nice head and caramel lacing. Light fruit aroma giving way to caramel and toffee as it warms. Decent pint. Caramel taste with a trace of spice that is hard to pin down that teases through the finish. Slighty thicker body but reminiscent of Big Rock’s Trad or McNally. Props to Tupalev.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
Bottle. Amber colour, small thin head. Slightly fruity aroma, but nothing too noticeable. Thin malty character, nicely balanced with a mild hoppy taste. Crisp. Was expecting nothing, so this was a nice surprise. Looking forward to trying the pilsner

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
A slowly burning red wine vinegar furnace, fed by feeble caramel sweetness...Fiendish water dilutes the few berries and ferries across the fickle ashes...Far from a fiasco, but still a fledgeling lager...

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Bright copper, little white head. Sweet malt and light fruit in the nose - just a touch of citrus hops. Slight roasty hops in the body, light sweet malt. Caramelly with light hops at the end.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Amber color, thin head, some lace. Aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor was toasty with some caramel. Medium body, easy drinking. Somewhat better than expected.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Copper colour, almost no head-but what is-thin tan. Aroma of caramel, light malt and metal. Medium-bodied; Somewhat spicey taste with caramel and malt most prevalent. Overall, decent-better than I was expecting, a bit more than a 'palate cleanser'! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Malty, caramel aroma. Dark red/amber color. Clean toasty malts, decent hop balance. Nothing too special.
