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!

Bottle from holiday pack @LCBO: Brown beer with tan head. Week aromas of toasted malt. Taste is same with a dash of chcolate hazelnut spread. Thin on the palate with a most curious, unpleasant aftertaste.

Sampled at The C’est What? Fall Festival of Beers. Nice dark brown colour with a small creamy head. Pleasant malty aroma. Good levels of malt in the taste, with a hint of herbs (?) and chocolate. Body was light, but pleasant. I didn’t expect too much here, but ended up surprised. Good beer.

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.

Amber, tan creamy head with very little retention. Fruity, caramel, roasted nuts, some malt. Has a sweet to slight bitter finish. Not a bad dark lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Dark tan pour, little head, bready, full and rich with smoothness and a slight bitter. Not bad.

mmacleod75 (105) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured dark brown, slight reddish tinge with small thin tan head. Almost fruity aroma and sweet malts. Taste was much more roasted malts with a bit of coffee like bitterness. Quite nice.

Raistlin (90) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Pours a dark amberish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is toffee and roasted caramalts underneath metalic Noble hops. Flavor is very nice, starts out almost sour with grainyness then some good sweet malt body kicks in, with a bitter hop bite in the finish. Grainy malty awesomeness. Minor mocha hint to it as well. Leaves the palate wanting more. Super-sessionable, this is an excellent beer.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 341ml bottle: Pours a dark red with a white head that I absolutely love. Taste is quite complex with losts of malts, carmels, chocolates and some coffees. Its not heavy tasting at all and finishes quite nice with no lingering after taste. The local micros have done it again.

341ml brown bottle. Reddish lager, head is small and tan. Fresh malty aroma. Roasted malt taste, some decent hopiness behind it. Rather carbonated
