3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Swing top bottle, 500 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.5%
Very dark orange copper, almost red colour on the body, with a tall and thick off white head. Good retention, medium lacing remains on the glass. Body is crystal clear with continuous slow activity in it.
Aroma has just a touch of smoke, enough but not anything extreme. Aroma of malts is following, along with some spices.
Taste is lighty smokey at first, followed by a malty sweetness and fruity flavours such as green apples.
Medium thin body. Carbonation is soft, a bit low though.
Overall a good beer for someone who wants to start with smoked beers as it’s not overwhelming.

Pours a reddish amber colour with a slim slightly off-white head. Nose and taste are light, almost IPA-like with red fruits and malts and a nuanced smokey aftertaste with some hoppy bitterness. Lively mouthfeel. Very drinkable for a rauchbier.
