COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Dark lagers were the norm until the late 19th century and they still exist today in Franconia, north of Munich. We have recreated this ancient lager using toasted Munich barley malt, then slow matured it for up to six weeks to develop rich toffee caramel flavours.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Reddish/brown, perfectly clear with a medium/thin off-white head. Slight hint of roasted malt in the sweetish malty aroma. Smooth and slightly sweet at first there’s a bitter, malty finish. Not bad, I’ll give it another go.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2008
This copper beer has a toasty aroma and a complex flavour of fruit and roasted malt with some smokiness with a bit of a boozy kick in the finish. This is my first Dunkel style beer and I was rather impressed.
