On tap at the source, pours a hazy medium honey color with a light tan head. The smell is to toasted malt, mild smoke. The taste is as is smells...mild sweetness sending smokey and dry. A nice summer brew. Light in body with elegant carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At the source in Bamberg-Germany, from gravity keg. Pours amber hazy color, medium gassy off-white foam. Nose: mild smoke character, with some malty distinctive notes. Floral too. Nice!. Mouth: soft carbonation, almost flat which makes it perfect for drinking sessions. Medium body. Bread crust, herbal end. The softest smoked beer of my trip and one of the best I have ever had here in Franconia. Apparently I was very lucky to find it.

Draught. Brown colour, small foamy white head. Aroma is smoked, a bit ashy along with some ryebready and strange sweetness to it. Flavour is very similar in a good balance. A bit on the sweeter side, but still a nicely balanced brew.
