4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Bottle. Almost clear deep golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of bread, smoke, smoked sausage, grain, floral hops, earth and bonfire. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bread, toast and smoke. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great combination of a helles and a Rauchbier. Under the smoke, there?s a beautiful, balanced, hoppy base. Great stuff!

50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Golden yellow with white head. Aroma of grass, smoked sausage, ashes, herbs, malts, bread. Woody/smoky flavours, crispy end.
Better than i thought, balanced, clean and the smokiness is not too much.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours clear gold with a small white head that leaves lace. Aroma is rather crisp pale malt, slightly sweet with a touch of bread, smoky quality, leather, grass, lightly herbal. Flavour has a light malt body with a bit of cereals and honey to it. Moderate smoke and wood, leather, slight cured meat, grass, floral, slightly spicy hop bitterness, all of which ramp up slightly towards a dry, lightly bitter, semi-crisp finish. Rather light bodied, carbonation is quite prickling. Interesting beverage, the second-hand smoke character is quite clear and gives a layer of interest to a relatively simple noble-hopped lager. Fun to try and reasonably drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ljusgul, klar med medelstort skum. Brödig doft med en svag rökton. I smaken kommer röken fram mer och ger en stark karaktär åt den rena brödigheten som ligger i botten. En intressant lager med klassisk tysk grundsmak med en trivsam rökig twist.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden yellow color, medium white head. Bread malt aromas, yeast, spices. Slight bitter, smoke, malt, bread and ’dirt’ tasting. Finish and taste feels a bit off, like unwashed root crops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crystal clear, bright golden color, with a huge, stable white head.
Smells of wet straw, soft hay and a light herbal whiff. A cakey malt profile gets recognizable among the more pronounced garden herb qualities.
Has a light, well nuanced mouthfeel with a medium carbonation, slighly bubbly during the mid palate, with a calmer, malt focussed finish and a herbal dryness prevailing.
Tastes of sun dried straw, gently accompanied by garden herbs and a lingering, subtle dough malt profile. A pleasant leaf dryness comes up during the mid palate, finishing with an aqueous softness, guided by slighty sweeter toffee malts.
Wow, this is masterfully balanced with a very enjoyable, well nuanced hop presence, making this very refreshing. For me, ligher beers’ most important quality is their balance, since its got to be clean brewed or it becomes a mess, and this one is a winner.

A smokey character to think I was expecting them to do a straight up hells!. Some dry hops shine through the mix. A nice drink.
