Dutch Dunkle ABV: 5.0% 
Welcome to the light-bodied dark beer that is a properly crafted Dunkel (Dunkel meaning “dark”). The Dunkel is a refreshing dark beer derived from Munich dating back to 1516 making it one of Germany’s oldest, standardized styles. Dark mahogany brown in color, a slight off-white head will persist. Aromas will be very light and consist of a slight nuttyness with roasted wheat and touch of noble hops. A soft, somewhat bready flavor may complement the yeast character. The Little Dutch will drink like a lager progressing to a lighter finish that is effervescent and clean. A crowd pleaser to be sure.

German Pale Ale ABV: 5.0%
A flagship of Wacker and one of only a handful of traditional German Ales, Kolsch is a delicate style of pale ale native to Cologne Germany. This beer is cold-conditioned to provide medium-light body, and drinks smooth and crisp like a fine Pilsner. Color is pale and straw-like, producing a frothy white head that may not persist. A low noble hop aroma combines well with slight fruitiness from fermentation. Which will lead well into a soft, rounded palate consisting of sweet malt and a hint of hop bitterness that does not linger. Each sip finishes crisp and clean. Overall this beer is delicately balanced and one of the most sessionable ales from Germany.
