14°P • 20 IBU • 5.3% ABV
Royal Dark is a German-style lager concieved in the Bavarian traditions of Dunkel, Bockbier and Schwarzbier. Dark but not too dark, this tawny lager presents with a satiny texture, deep copper hue and a lacy head. It is best served under a thick blanket of foam in a pint glass or dimple mug.
Look for a malt-forward profile with rich hints of malty caramel, roasted barley and a sweetness offset by just enough hop bitterness and aroma to support the delicious malty backbone.
