4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Crisp and refreshing like a good lager but with a healthy dose of smoke. Bit of smokey bacon on the nose and what a trip that no smoked malts were used to brew this. One of the best from the brewery. Not as fierce as the others, the finish is dry and malty with the smoke mostly gone by then. Still one of my alltime favorites.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden orange with a white head. Aroma of smoked malts, toffee, light butterscotch, malt, light leathery notes and a little metallic. Flavour is a over moderate sweet and above light bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color with a nice foamy head. Aroma yeasty, bready, and smokey. Not as smokey as other offerings from this brewery. But it there. Taste bready, smokey, and a but metallic. As a Helles, it’s mediocre, since the smoke covers up the delicate flavors that distinguish a good Helles. As a smoked beer it’s ok - not as smokey as others, but I think that’s an advantage.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pale golden body, small head. Aroma has a small hint of ham and leather but nothing overbearing. Taste is generally light with a notable but still not overly strong leathery smokiness. Pretty light finish with a subtle smokiness. It’s decent but I expected a fuller body and more intense smokiness. Definitely a nice lager but not as memorable as their Märzen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Super pretty golden with small lingering head, good lacing. Sweet malt aroma, not as smokey as the last one i had, actually theres barely no smoke at all, which is one reason i like this one, its always different. Low bitterness, good malt balance, sweet and mildly earthy. Nice lingering finish. Easy drinkability that comes full bodied. Nice!
