Bottle from SS! Thanks! Pour is a overcarbonated very lightly hazy straw gold, with a HUGE white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is phenolic smoke, light detergent. Taste is more smokey, peaty, astringent malt bitterness. Just OK.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells of smoke and a touch of bitterness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a nice smoked character with light caramel and earth. The flavor has a smoke character as well, but it doesn’t work well with the thin body of this beer. Some caramel and thin crackery malt with some earth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate soft smoke and yeast aroma. Medium body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smoke sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Little head. Very nice big smokey peaty nose. Nice in the smell, but its a bit intense in the flavor. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation, lightly slick, sort of drying. Crackery, kind of musty malt flavor. Bigger, sort of lingering bitterness, and a dry finish. Nothing for the smoke to grab onto here. I suspect this might have had a brighter hop profile when fresh.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a huge frothy white head. A gusher in fact. The aroma is smoky malt with a hint of caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a liqourice toffee caramel malty palate. A nice enough beer. Shame about the gushing.

Bottle at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Really lovely light rauchbier. Golden in colour, with a massive head. Smells nicely smoky. Thick in the mouth. Flavour is rich and the malts are luxuriant. Hops are there too.
