Tap at Grumpy Troll. Unfiltered orange-tan. Creamy white head, steady. I found this to be quite enjoyable, big banana tones and a solid smoke flavor. Not unlike a Bamberg beer in its finish. Excellently sessionable, and lots of character too. Dry, bitter, soapy straw hop balance. Very nice.

A bit on the weak end in mouthfeel but a good American rendition of it. Obviously had some corners cut but smoky yet refreshing.

Grätzers usually go under "Traditional Ale" no?

Pours an extraordinarily hazy yellow color with basically no head at all.

The aroma is very smoky & pungent. Not unlike a camp fire. Very one noted, but very appetizing none the less.

The flavor is rich and smoky with a light zippy graininess & some mild bitterness. Being as low gravity as it is, and having 100% smoked malt it’s no surprise that this thing is extremely one noted, It’s delicious, but there’s not a ton of complexity to the flavor.

The palate is very light, but that makes for a very easy to drink beer despite it’s huge flavor.
