Frankenmuth’s Dunkel Lager is a perfect example of a dark lager that stays away from typical lager stereotypes. Dunkel is not only flavorful — it’s not as watery as you’d expect, either. Earthy nut and toffee flavors are present throughout each sip, with just a hint of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla towards the end. This lightly carbonated brew is pretty drinkable, too, as its flavors are well-balanced and complement each other well.
