Rating #1738 - 2015.06.08 - Bottle from CBI. Pours a gorgeous golden, with a bubbly white head, decent retention. Aroma is wood smoke, earthy aromatics. Taste is light graininess, but a lovely toffee malt sweetness that is balanced with a light hoppy bitterness and the smoky undertone in the finish. Bold flavour for a smoked/unsmoked lager. Lovely.

Poured a golden color witha white head. Aroma was grassy, pale malt, and very light smoke. Flavor similar, crazy that the smoke is there without any smoked malt.

Growler from Last Drop.
Gold pour, lovely light smoke aroma with some grain. Easy drinking helles augmented by this beautiful understated smoke is absolutely delicious. Nothing like the overpowering Aecht Rauchbiers, just enough smoke to keep it interesting. Dry close. Super-nice summer beer.
