3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2.22.05 Looks like I’m the the first (or among the first) person to have had this in the US with it being obtained in the US, not brought home from a trip, etc. I was told it is just being made available around these parts. Still had the smoky aromas and flavors imparted onto it from running through the system without actually being smoked (or so I’m told). Decent but I prefer the Marzen etc to this.

Very clear smoked nose (smoked like smoked chess, not like fx. whiskey) of barbecue and campfire, hoppy notes as well; Soft with a very fresh sourness to the body, a little thin though; Very nice long fresh malty finish.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pale yellow in colour. Coriander grass and smoked aromas; bitterish taste with pepper and smoke aromas; bitter finish with pepper and bacon.
A very interesting beer - a smoked helles. It has a good combination of smoked malt and spicy hop flavours. Very full-flavoured for its strength. It doesn’t contain any smoked malt in the grist, but picks up its smoky character from the filter. So it really should be classified as a Helles not a smoked beer. Though the beer is unique and really falls into a style of its own.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Pale golden color with a small head. Slightly sweet, quite smoky aroma. Sweetish, buttery-malty flavor with some smokiness, but not as much as expected. Medium-bodied with quite low carbonation. A pretty nice and balanced brew, which might deserve even more points - but I dunno where to shove them into...
