Pint on tap. Clear, shiny copper body has a small spit and ring of creamy foam. Light bacon and brown sugar nose. Tastes the same with some dry grassy hop on the finish. Light-medium body has a great balance and a pleasant low-medium carbonation. Not a lot of smoke but this is one of the better smoked lagers I’ve had outside the Brauerei Heller brews.
