3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at Bishops Arms Gamla Stan, Stockholm. Almost clear copper colour, small head. Mild aroma of smoked meat. Mid dry with medium body and clrsn, rounded mouthfeel. Fairly mild beechwood smoke, slight notes of grassy hops. Low bitterness. Nice smoke flavours, but lacking malt depth when comparing it to its Franconian ancestors.

Strong aroma of Bamberg smoke malt, but the taste has an extra smoothness to add, which gently balances the smoke. Very good.
