A smoked German-style helles inspired by our Brewmasterís travels to Northern Bavaria. Continental pilsner and Franconian beachwood smoked malts provide a soft, malty backbone that is balanced nicely with a firm dose of German Noble Hops.

Nice smoked beer, a bit one dimensional, but overall very enjoyable. Poured clear deep golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is straight up smoke, along with the flavor. A bit of graininess in the flavor, but the smoke really dominates. An enjoyable beer and definitely a bit unique.

On tap at Pittsburgh south side. Golden appearance. Smoky aroma and flavor. This one is not too overwhelming at all. I find smoked beers to be tough to get through after half the glass however this one is enjoyable the whole glass. Finishes nicely and doesnít over linger. Well done.

Golden beer out of the tap with an attractive white head. Nice smokey wood nose. Clean, crisp beer with a solid smoke overlay. The smoke is not so aggressive as to overpower. Well balanced and tasty.

Tap at FH, if this is what budweiser should taste like, good flavor solid backbone and crisp finish. great beer, but not really a smoked, more like a premium lager

Couple of samples at Fat Headís. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white. Aroma of smoke, ham and not much else. Flavor is smoky and hammy, but the true flavor of the beer comes through on the back end. A nice blend of light sweet malt and crisp noble hops. Nicely done.

baraciisch (2903) - California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Extremely smokey aroma, flavor was definitely a little too extreme.... Smoke really overpowered the palate from tasting anything else... Really couldnít drink anything else after that... Not the best

Sammy (11230) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
On-tap at Coleís. A very light body with lots of white foamy head. The line probably needed to be cleaned up, but the flavour was fine. A significant but not overbearing smoked malt, rather faint in the aroma, in a well-malted beer. Good drinkability.Easy drinkability.

draft at Coles, Buffalo, NY. deep golden pour, medium smoke on the nose with some bready notes. taste is smoke, sweet malts, some berry like sweetness in the finish. smoke is not overbearing but adds a nice touch

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a clear orange color with a medium thin eggshell white head that diminishes steadily. Jagged top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Smoked malt aroma with some caramel notes. Medium body with a moderate smoke character and flavors of toasted malt and hops. The finish is smoky with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
