The Civil Life Munich Dunkel


Brewed by The Civil Life Brewing Company
St. Louis, Missouri USA
Style: Dunkel/Tmavý | Ratings: 5 | Alcohol: 4.4%
Guess where the Munich Dunkel is from?! Yep. Pittsburgh. I joke I joke. Munich Dunkel was developed in the city of Munich as a response to their moderately carbonate water. Its a really simple beer with stunning results (I’m speaking stylistically, though ours is pretty darn good). Primarily Munich Malt (a slightly darker than Pale type) does the heavy lifting and Hallertau hops give a very soft Hop lift to the brew. Aromas of Cereals, Breads, Malt (well, thats obvious but true) and lighter notes of chocolates, nuts, and caramels can be present. Melanoidins flavors are apparent and show up most in versions that are decoction mashed. Melanoidins are formed when sugars and amino acids combine through heat and water and give a very rich and emphatic malt aroma.
