Beer in a can…I have only had a few on my journey towards 365 and they were really not all that bad. Quite unlike the beer in a can I can remember my dad drinking, Budweiser. We have all had beer from a can, mostly bad beer but it seems like there are a few craft brewers like Oskar Blues and tonight’s brewer, Sly Fox Brewing Company, that make decent beer…in a can…although not tonight.
Beer #206 is Dunkel Lager by Sly Fox Brewing Company which hails from Royersford, Pennsylvania. The style of this beer is a Munich Dunkel Lager with an ABV of 5.3%. A Munich Dunkel Lager is a traditional Bavarian style dark lager.
Dark it was as it poured a dark reddish brown with sufficient tan head. It was mostly caramel malts nose wise. It was very light in the taste with just a tad bit sweet caramel, a bit of bread, and some grains. The finish irked me as it had a funky almost metallic taste to it. Possibly from the can? It had a thin body with and was kind of watery with low carbonation.
Below average beer for sure and as much as I wanted to give it the big fat F, I held back. It wasn’t worthy of that as I feel to get an F, it truly, at least to me, has to be horrible. This wasn’t that but it was quite forgettable. On to beer #207.
