2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tapped at Hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava. Overall not bad, however I had recently a Bamberger rauchbier and it blew me away. So anything below that is not so good. This rauch lager has a good rauch aroma, however, the taste is way watery, low bodied, hoppy and the rauch character is a side kick here. Too bad. Damn I wish it had more body and less hops.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at RJ. Aroma moderately smoky, nice neutral woody smoke. Clear deep amber colour, almost brown. Taste is surprisingly nice. Moderate intensity of soft smokiness. Supporting bready maltiness in the background, touch of caramel. Notes of hops, mostly in the dry bitter finish, saaz probably. Carbonatin is on the high side, with stable creamy head. Full body, easy drinking. Very good, I like it.

On tap at Zly Casy (02/03/13). Dark amber pour, lasting lacy white head. Aroma is smokey, meaty notes, smoked ham. Flavor is smoky, more meaty flavors, smooth and very balanced, no harsh smoke flavors or unwanted sweetness. Nice dry palate, low-med carbonation, fluffy. Excellent rauch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Charcuterie notes abound in this authentic Rauchbier, leading to long smokiness and lingering hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sturdy head of foam decorates the cloudy dark amber.
-A mild dusty, farm-y edge is found within.
-The dryness and soft carbonation make this very drinkable despite the intense smoke character.
-The salted meat personality is engaging.
On tap at Zly Casy, Praha.
