Beer Description

Dunkel is the German word for dark and so has the color and toasted flavor associated with dark beers.

Don’t let the Slingshot’s color fool you, it has a light body, and smooth, subtle complexities that will remind you to never judge a book by its cover. Or, more likely, it’ll just remind you that beer is a pretty darn good thing.

Yet as a lager it ferments out clean with a light body that many associate with beers of a lesser complication. Thus you have the pairing of the best of both worlds, a dark beer you can drink all night. Dunkel originates in the beer halls of Munich. One of the oldest styles, for centuries these dark lagers were all that could be made. In the past 100 years advances in technology made lighter colors possible, but nothing compares to the dark smooth malty flavor of Dunkel.
