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: 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.

341ml Bottle: Wow, what a tremendous find! Met these guys at an event in Caledon, decided to buy a six to support the locals. Pours a beautiful deep brown with crimson edges, although the head sadly left quickly on the bottle. Scent is amazing, with caramel and chocolate. The taste is exceptional, almost schwarzbier, featuring a lot going on. You can taste sweet caramelized malt, some light grain, chocolate and coffee tones, and only a slight amount of hops near the back. Easily one of my top ones, I swear the rest of you have been drinking something else.

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!

341ml bottle from the LCBO 3 Kings gift pack. pours deep reddish brown with a lasting tan head. amazingly fresh toasty bread and dark malt nose. the flavour doesnt quite live up to the nose but hasall the same qualities. amazing dark lager, i wish i could buy 6ers of this locally, itd be my fall/winter session lager for sure.

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.

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.

341mL bottle from a sixer I got at my Liccboh. Pours a dark amberish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is toffee and roasted caramalts underneath metalic Noble hops. Seems weird and off at first but gets better the more you sniff. Flavour 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, and I’m glad it’s finally available in my area.
