3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Reakt.
A very attractive russet brown colour with a thin beige head. Really good charred nose with hints of nuts and something distinctly English and traditional. Underlying dried fruits too. Reasonably complex and certainly pleasant. The flavour is not quite as good but it’s still more than drinkable. It’s just a little on the thin side and the complexity of the aroma has become a little more one dimensional. Good prickly bitterness in the finish along with a delicate but lengthy smoky aftertaste. Good stuff

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours dirty brown with a huge creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with a weak cured meat addition, light smoke as well, like a bonfire from yesterday. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, overpowering the light smoked note, which almost disappears in this one. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonated.

Lovely sausagey aroma. Light palate, refreshing. Great smokiness, like a countryside smoke sauna, with a barbie. Finish is nice fatty sausages. Like it!

Dark maple syrup color Amber big foam. Aroma Band-Aids and smoke like a funky saison. Tastes smoky yet integrated. Slight saltiness. Rye bread. This is a delicious tribute to Bamberg smoked brews. Palate is rustic dry and slightly watery.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smoke is in the aroma, not so much in the flavor which makes this a nice subtle beer, even gets a little sweet towards the end. Easy to drink
