DUNKEL

Probably the original Pilsner style and from that noted brewing hotspot of Bavaria. They are dark lager beers and though their popularity has waned, they’re still popular in their homeland and all the major breweries (even Beck’s) have a go at a Dunkel.

They are very dark without being black and brewers normally wait until the barleymalt (or wheat, in the case of Dunkelweizen) is slightly caramalised.

They are typically very smooth, very rich in their flavours and a little stronger than their lighter cousins, though not as bitter.
