About the beer: This week’s Beer of the Week/Crafted Can comes out of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Though I’ve never spotted this in the Boston area, Sly Fox seemed to have a good place with the New Jersey market where I found this pack. This lager is an attempt at a popular style in the German/Bavarian market. Dunkel, which is German for “dark,” is a style that’s known for it’s smooth, malty flavor, along with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and/or toasted malts. This lager specifically uses Munich, Pils, and German Roast malts along with several types of Bavarian hops.
