COLDXELA FEST AWARDED
Beer of the month
“Dunkel” is a Munich style dark lager brewed by Enegren Brewing Company located in Moorpark, CA. I was eager to try it since, well, Enegren is easily a favorite for any German style lagers in SoCal, but also because I hadn’t had much of this kind of lager. It was a hit for me at first sip. The malt is immediately at the forefront with pronounced bread and biscuit notes. Combined with a dry, crispy finish and coming in at 5.5%, it was hard not to just chug this one. Very nice head retention, And the clarity !! There is nothing aggressive about it and I think that is what is the most appealing part for my taste. This beer represents all of my favorite beer characteristics in one so I’ll definitely be back for more, hopefully before the season of dark lagers passes. Cheers!”
