COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A somewhat extinct Polish Ale. 100% oak smoked malted wheat and oak is also used in the malting process. Very low ABV makes for a refreshing and sparkling session ale with just the right amount of smoke. Brewed with a hard water to mimic Polish well water and Saazer varieties of hops.

Growler at RBWG Grand Tasting. Clear, light yellow pour with a massive white head. Nose is apple, a tad skunky and lightstruck. Taste is mildly smokey, apple, paper. Clean, very light palate.

Growler at rbwg, shared by cheesedman. I enjoy these smokey sours, but I am well aware they are not for everyone. Lots of lemon, smoke, light grassiness and biscuity malt. Another fun one from C&L. Look forward to visiting the brewery someday.

Growler shared at RBWG, poured a light hazy yellow color with aromas of light smoke, sour wheat, and touch of bacon. Flavors arw the same light on the palate, not the best style of beer for me but this is one of the better ones.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours clear yellow with a light, white foam head. Definite smoke in the nose, some grass and white bread. Light sweet flavor with dry straw, biscuits, background smoke. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, more biscuity pale malts, lingering smoke, tasty stuff. Pretty novel and easily drinkable,

Cask & Larder Grätzer is a good attempt but this locally brewed draft did not meet my expectations. The beer comes out in a large pint glass with a light amber color and a large foamy head. There was a little yeast aroma. The initial taste is a pronounced oak smoked malt with a little yeast character, but that flavor is quickly blown away with a harsh hop bitterness. While I am a big fan of the oak smoked flavor, I thought the flavor was too strong in this beer. The final product was interesting on some level, but overall not very enjoyable.
