Dunkel Lager
(Sly Fox Brewing Company)

I love the color motif of this can, its pretty eye-catching as far as can art goes. Sly Fox does a great job with all of their marketing and their labels and cans are certainly a big part of all that. 

 

From the Sly Fox site:

"A traditional Bavarian style Dark Lager, made with Munich, Pils and German Roast malts and a variety of Bavarian hops. This became the third Sly Fox beer to be canned in October 2006."


Here we go...

 

Pour - clean, clear brown to auburn in color. Looks like a lighter brown ale with a nice looking lager-esque head. 

 

Aroma - some sharp sulfuric smells, definitely some brown sugar and warm caramel, a little cocoa and perhaps a bit of vanilla extract.

 

Taste - sweet on the tongue with a crisp finish. Lots of caramel flavor along with some citrusy hops in the finish. Not a ton of complexity here but that makes for a very easy drinking beer. 

 

Overall - A very well crafted dark lager that's clean all the way through and does its job very well. This leaves my tongue a little dry which keeps me reaching for my glass. 

 

Availability - Fall/Winter

 

Would I buy more of it? - sure, as far as dark lagers in can goes this is pretty much the one that I'd go for. 

 

Note - Sly Fox's Dunkel Lager became the third Sly Fox beer to be canned in October 2006. Before that came Phoenix Pale Ale and Pikeland Pils
