Tasting Notes: Smooooth   

Inspired by Munich Dunkel and Rogue Dead Guy Ale. I figured if pacman yeast can make a world class Maibock why not try a munich dunkel.

This beer is a super crowd pleaser. It is light and dry, but the munich gives the impression/taste of huge maltiness/bread. Argentine Cascade gives light floral/citrus aroma and basically no flavor..just smooth bittering. If I might say, it reminds me of heineken dark.

I grossly underpitched this beer with a small starter cultutred from a rogue bottle, I only added the brown sugar to ramp up fermentation.......looking back it may not be necassary but sure makes for a nice light bodied beer. I boiled the brown sugar in water and cooled before adding to fermenter.

Hmmmm. Sounds good. What is Argentine Cascade like? I bought some New Zealand Cascade today.
