COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned" beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning "to store," so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing, or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.

deadheadbill (14) - Crystal River, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Dark brown with a nice tan head that dissipated fairly slowly. Not a lot of aroma coming out of the glass, but some smells of dark malt and slight brown sugar. Medium bodied with nice malty flavors and some dark fruits popping in, finishing with a little hop bite. True to the German dunkel style with the exception of being slightly hoppier. Overall a very nice dunkel and very drinkable.
