3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location/Date:Bottle on October 27th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma is nice amount of smoke, not overbearing.
Taste: Light smoke, very light bitterness, bready malt.
Palate:Light body, light aftertaste.
Summary: My fifth rating of Brauerei Heller. I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the other versions they make. Might be a good first beer from them if nervous about smokey aroma/flavor as it’s quite light. Just had to try this one, hope to finish out the brewery at some point.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong peppery spicy little bit of skunky aroma. Smoky flavors finish and linger in the aftertaste. Very interesting. Don’t dislike at all but then again could only drink so much. Makes you want to eat food.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours crystal clear pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is by far the weakest smelling as far as their line of smoke goes but that said it still has a very pleasant smoked meat and cheese element, a higher degree of fruity smells and some light grass or straw. The flavor is pure elegance as far as a lager goes. So crisp up front but mellows out into a nice smooth soft finish that is long as hell. The body is light. Very tasty, very refreshing.
