3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden, off-white head. Pale malts and white bread in the nose. The smoky notes are very faint, but the Schlenkerla is certainly there. The taste is very clean and smooth - bready malts, mealy, gentle malt sweetness and a light but characterful smoky note that blend into the grassy spicy bitter finish. Just what one would expect - an immaculate helles with a hint of smoky spiciness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske fra Det gode brygg, Sandnes, delt med Ovesen på Holmens juleverksted: klar gylden med særdeles flott skum. Maltaroma med litt (tysk) humle, gress og et aldri så lite snev av røyk. Klar og tydelig pilsnersmak forsterket av det bittelille røykpreget. Fin bitterhet med det nødvendige anstrøk av maltsødme i slutten. Gode saker!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Pivoteka Zagreb. Clear golden body, white head. Aroma... nice graininess, very, very light smoke, a bit simple but interesting nonetheless. Taste... a strong initial blast of bacon, ending abruptly, not as soft a mouthfeel as expected, and a bit too light. As the bacon goes away, the interest vanishes with it, but, in any case, it’s a nice light lager to try.
