COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grätzer is another lost style, this beer originated in Poland and was a wheat and pilsner based beer that had an intense smoke aroma and flavor from smoking the malt over oak. In addition to the smoke the beer was bitter and had a pronounced hop flavor and aroma. Grimm Brothers has developed Sooty Brother in a similar fashion. Sooty Brother is composed of Wheat and Pilsner malt which has been smoked over oak and cherry wood. (Thank you Bottle Cap Bar-B-Que) Hopped with Noble German hops to give us a beer that has an intense smoke flavor accompanied by the floral bouquet of the hops. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

brokensail (11231) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Light straw pour with a white head. Sweet bread and cracker malt and quite a lot of smoke. Notes of orange peel, some lemon, and a light fruity ester note. The flavor is fairly smokey as well. Orange and lemon zest, some cracker, and bread sweetness. Very light and would be quite bland if not for the smoke.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2013
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is kinda meaty with notes of salted pork and greasy smoke. Flavor is clean and balanced, between smokiness and malty sweetness. In truth, it tastes like a smoked blonde ale. Gentle greasy smokiness, mixed with an earthy pale malt grain flavor. Slight sausage tone on the finish. Overall a bit light but it’s exactly where it needs to be--any stronger and it would be gross. Gentle noble hop bitterness throughout.

yngwie (13924) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a lighlty unclear one, golden-orange in color and topped by a small, white head. There’s a pleasant smoked aroma in this one, with fruityness in the back. Quite straight forward and one dimensional, but pleasant. There’s a pleasant bitterness in the flavor blending nicely with the smoke and fruityness. Medium body, quite dry. A tasteful and easy drinkable beer I wouldn’t mind having again. 130216
