High-End European import — Dark German pilsner
A rich and surprisingly smooth beer, Beck’s Dark features a lingering, slightly sweet aftertaste. The deep copper color is the result of specially roasting the barley malt. Unlike dark ales, Beck’s Dark is a bottom-fermented lager, which creates a robust flavor and full body while retaining the refreshing properties of a lager beer.
Brewed in Bremen, Germany, the Beck’s family of beers is made in accordance with the “Reinheitsgebot,” the German Purity Law of 1516, which stipulates that only four natural ingredients can be used in the brewing process: barley malt, hops, water and yeast. Beck’s Dark is 5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV).
Beck’s Dark is available in 12- and 24-ounce glass bottles.
How to Serve:
The full body of Beck’s Dark pairs well with German-style foods such as sausages and other grilled meats. The roasted malt flavor also complements flourless chocolate cake, apple pie and other desserts.
Beck’s Dark is one of the leading imported German dark beers in the United States.
Also available in the United States are Beck’s Pilsner, Beck’s Light, Beck’s Oktoberfest and Beck’s Non-Alcoholic.
Beck’s Dark is imported and distributed in the United States by Anheuser- Busch, Inc.
