Style: Munich Dunkel Lager
Style Information
The Munich Dunkel Lager should range in color from light brown to dark brown. The aroma should be dominated by slight malt sweetness with a slight hop bitterness also apparent. The sweetness should not be overly strong though, with a balance between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness. There should also be bready yeast tones in the aroma from the Munich dark malts. The taste should have chocolate notes, with roasted malts and noble hops apparent. A slight bready yeast taste may also be present, as in the aroma. The feel should light to medium bodied. ABV should range from 4.5% to 5%. IBUs should be low, from 16 to 25.
