3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy gold with a white head. Smells like a bamberg smoked beer. Tastes slightly tarte and minerally with a smoky finish. I am happy to see gose separated out, but why lump it in with lichtenhainer and grodziskie?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and orange with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The subtle aroma furnishes cereal grains, smoked malts and a light ration of acidity. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is grainy and bready with minerals and even less acidity than the nose hinted at. Crisp, minerally finish. The smoky component is non-existent in the flavor and finish. Cleanly brewed though.
