COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Røyk Uten Ild (Smoke Without Fire) is our smoky beer, here we have tried to make a beer as smoky as we can using our smoked malt from Weiermann. We have made a fairly dark and flavourful beer. Apart from the special malt the rest of the malt bill (86%) is smoked malt. You could also say that this is a smoked wheat beer, because we have used our wheat beer yeast here. The beer is not scary but actually very nice even for those that aren’t smoke beer fanatics....try it and you will see. Contains malted barley, Amarillo hops, wheat beer yeast, and lots of smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. 8% alc, 33 ibu, 48 ebc. Serving temp 8 - 12C or 46 - 53F.

GJF (1365) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2010
This is a well-balanced smoked beer--very drinkable without any overpowering smoke. Pours a dark red, very small head. Smoky, malty aroma. Sweet malt background with a smooth smokiness and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable.

notalush (5362) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2010
50cl bottle with a crude black and white label that looks like it was printed using an old dot matrix printer - lightly cloudy ruby pour - loose, sudsy lace - nose of earth, peat, heavy campfire smoke - some notes of dry spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) - a bit of herbal character - full mouthfeel - soft carbonation - begins a bit earthy and moderately tart/acidic - immediately noticeable, heavy smoke that last throughout - some dry, peaty character through the middle - some notes of heather and herbs - develops a moderate caramel character and a bit of plumy sweetness late - mild alcohol in the finish compliments the lingering smoke - sort of a combo of a scotch ale and a smoky traditional ale - pretty dang good, aside from a slightly astringent bitterness on the tail end.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Definitely tons of smoke in this beer. You can smell the Bamburg malt. Taste it lots of smoke, smooth chocolatey malt and a nice lingering finish. Moderate bitterness. I only wish my gouda was warm enough to dip in this.

FatPhil (10893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2010
500 ml bottle (Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki)
7 Teraleijona pastilija smokiness with sweetness, touch of bacon.
5 black, small ring tan head.
7 blue cheese and salt retronasals. Taste is slightly burnt and tarry, touch of toffee too. Some nettle tingles.
3 Very biting, almost caustic from the phenols.
13 Doesn’t have the balance of the smokiest Bamberg, and the harshness is a lttle over the top.
