Farm Table: Dunkel

Dunkel • 5.7% • Farm Table

Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. Dunkel is a malty Bavarian dark lager with a balanced, reserved hop presence. At 5.7%, this traditional German beer is crisp and highly drinkable, with a rich, malt-forward taste. Dunkel is truly the ideal beer for those who love both the roasted characteristics of a dark beer and the clean finish of a lager.


History & Style

Among the most appropriately named styles of beer, the term “dunkel” is the German word for “dark.” Dunkel’s history stretches back to the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516, which decreed that brewers use only barley, hops and water in beer-making – clearing a path for the dunkel, which met both these standards and satisfied the palates of the people of Munich. This traditional Bavarian lager rose in prominence, with a legacy that remains to this day. Dunkel is luscious and toasty in flavour, yet with smooth lager crispness.

Tasting Notes

Dunkel pours mahogany with a billowy white foam. The aroma offers mocha and bread crust notes. The flavour features deep malt impressions with hints of chocolate. This medium bodied dark lager has a clean finish.
