3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Save On. Gold with nice head and lace. Very mild hint of smoke within grassy hops and bready malt aroma. Malty sweet bready toffee with mild grassy hop finish and a hint of smoke. Too malty for a pils. Okay. Not near the class of Mikkeler Rauchpils or Jack in the Ham.
Also, doesn’t taste fresh, vegetal cardboardy. I enjoy trying and rating a lot of beers, but I am starting to get a little pissed.

650 ml bottle poured into a Tulip glass
Appearance....... cloudy orange beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers
Aroma............... grass, floral very smokey. Fresh and strong smell with a little touch of malty aroma too
Taste........ citrus and herbal, touch of malt with smokey wood in mouth, bitterness appears lately to complete a complex beer
Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall............ a very nice beer, bitterness is present in a light style, refreshing beer being a smoked pilsner. Well executed idea. To repeat.
