Dunkel / Dark Lager

Dunkel / Dark Lager

934 beers | 3.261 Avg Score

This group includes two distinguishable substyles: Amercan (and some macro European) dark lagers, as well as the Munich dunkel lager (dark lager). The former style is fairly straight forward and the less exciting of the two, encompassing copper to brown lagers with light bodies and balanced low hop and malt flavors (and often corn or rice adjuncts). The Munich dunkel lager version of these dark lagers is darker (deep copper or red-brown to dark brown) and has more prominent malt (no adjuncts, but bready, biscuit, chocolate, nutty, and sometimes light roastedness) and noble hop flavors. The hops and maltiness of a dunkel are normally well-balanced (not very sweet or too bitter) with a moderate body (ie. lighter than a bock or schwarzbier).
