Dark Lager - International / Premium
The International Dark Lager, sometimes also marketed as Premium Dark Lager, is a darker and somewhat sweeter version of international pale lager with a little more body and flavor, but equally restrained in bitterness. The low bitterness leaves the malt as the primary flavor element, and the low hop levels provide very little in the way of balance. Often either a colored or sweetened adaptation of the standard pale industrial lager, or a more broadly accessible version of more traditional dark lagers. Less flavor and richness than Munich Dunkel, Schwarzbier, or other dark lagers. Frequently uses adjuncts, as is typical of other International Lagers.
