Uit fles@ biergilde hoorn. Goudgeel helder bier met fijn wit schuim. Bier heeft in geur tonen van maltbier, hooi en ook tinten van asperges /ammoniak. In de smaak komt rook naar boven, er zit echter geen gerookte mout in verwerkt. mondgevoel is wat waterig.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color with 2 fingers of white head.
Ligth hoppy and smoked in nose. Really smoky(Speck schinken) in mouth with some cereal notes. To the midle of the glass it gets more hoppy and less smoked.
No in the level of the marzen but still good.

500ml bottle at ABV. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is slightly smokey, not nearly as in your face as the Marzen. Taste is clean and malty with a slightly smokey taste. This was pretty drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, Maruhn BB 08/2013. Light-bodied, low ABV Helles made for sessioning with an impressive lingering hop (Spalt) spice bitterness, somewhat metallic mouthfeel with some malt residu notes and subtle smoke traces, apparently due to being lagered in the same cellar as Schlenkerla’s real smoke beers. Requires hearty Franconian/Bavarian food to be enjoyed thoroughly and make sense.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a lively straw yellow with a thick white and lasting foam. Aroma is straw, hops, with a light oaky woody character. Very lightly balanced sweetness is followed by a little bit of a hop bite and a nice light smokiness at the end. Lively and light-bodied, the whole beer is just slightly rough at the end with the smoked elements. Overall, quite a delicately balanced lager, and very enjoyable drinking.
