3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Euston Tap. Deep amber gold in colour, nice thin foam of head. The slightest hint of smoke on the nose. This was superbly drinkable, the top end of German soft drinking malty lagers, biscuits and cookies, crisp, refreshing, and with the addition of a hint of smoke. More like malt that has seen a hint of smokiness in there, not the brutal barbeque of the officially smoked Schlenkerla stuff. Really quite pleasant.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The smokiness of this beer is the most prominent while drinking it. It pours with a golden color with no head at all. It has a really good taste to it though and I would drink it again. Overall it has a nice taste and you can really taste the smokiness in the beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head gone disappointingly quickly. I didn’t detect a lot of smoke here, mainly it was biscuity malt with quite a sweet finish - some cookie dough and angel cake with a streak of citrus in the finish. Pleasant and interesting lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Goldenrod colored body, medium to large white head, spotty lacing. Lightly smokey-earth lager yeast, grass, biscuit, and some sharper grains. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation and a crisp refreshing finish.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Clear golden beer, tiny white head which disappears very fast and leaves no lacing.
Smells soapy and a tiny bit floral, not much else going on in there, the taste is soapy too, also tastes like corn. The "residual smoke character" is nowhere to be found. The mouthfeel is a tad oily.
I was expecting smokiness, but all I got was a soapy beer that tasted like corn. yuck.

500ml bottle, clear golden brown pour with a small head, lively carbonation. Light caramel and toffee malt aroma, with dry, herby, earthy hop. Can’t really detect any smoke character. The palate is full for a lager and the finish is well balanced and short. Nice drinkable lager.
