COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ryk 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 arent 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.

mjs (4780) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2010
(Bottle, batch #273, at Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki) When serving me the waitress said that this would be smokier than Schlekerla Mrzen. Well, that wasnt true. There was smoke and tar both in the aroma and the taste but it wasnt really dominating. I could also sense liquorice, roastedness and fennel seeds. The last one came to me as a surprise but the flavour did fit in. No fennel seed were added according to the very minimalistic label. Aftertaste contained some metallicness which dropped the overall points a bit but otherwise good smoked beer.

Dark brown rubi colour witha tan head. Aroma of flowers, malt and some hints of wood. Very well balanced round flavour: semi sweet, light malty, lightly bitter and not so complex as you will expect from the aroma and the looks. Some dry feeling at the end, medium body. Very good beer overall.
