Lager - Munich Dunkel
- 5.2% ABV
Very few American breweries produce dunkels, so Heater Allen has taken it upon themselves to help set things right.
This is the beer that made Munich famous. The challenge is getting the color right without using too much black malt, as this beer shouldnt display that character.
Heater Allen uses 90% Munich Malt in the grist, along with a small amount of Amber and Caramel Malt and less than 1% Carafa (a German Black Malt). The beer is dark brown/red in color, with both malt and subtle hop aromas. The beer shows strong and complex malt character, with a hint of milk chocolate. The hops take a back seat to the malt, and only keep things in balance.
