Black Radish is brewed with a combination of Pilsner, Munich and Chocolate malts. German Northern Brewer malts are used again primarily for their floral characteristics and German Tettnang hops are chartered with the mission of balancing the bold malt profile of this tasty treat with their bittering attributes. Black Radish is brewed in the Dunkel style, is black in color, but light to medium in body. While one might think that this beer is going to be “heavy” simply by the appearance, it is actually fairly light, yet creamy. We loved the wonderful toasted malt flavor in the body! Look for the chocolate malts to come through in a pleasant lingering finish.
