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.

Brouwerij (919) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours an opaque brown, surprisingly light/bright. In my excitement I poured the dregs. Has a half finger of tan fine tan head. Aroma is smoke, smoked malt, mesquite, caramel, soy sauce, and alcohol. Flavor is bitter up front, fading into smoked and roasted malt tones, caramel and cocoa hints. Finishes mildly hoppy and bitter. Soft to moderate carbonation and medium-full body. Smooth texture. Flavorful and balanced, the hops provide a nice contrast to the smokiness. For some reason however, I wish it were a little smokier. This is a very good beer.

sir__v (625) - Lille, FRANCE - FEB 16, 2014
On tap @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: dark amber beer with small carbonation and small ivory brown head. Smell: smoked and roasted malty beer with something like smoked ham on nose. Taste: nice beer with ranch malt and roasted malt. Aftertaste: roasted malt. Not my favorite taste but the balance is fine and really drinkable.

Buongiorgio00 (754) - - JAN 8, 2014
A questa birra è stato dato veramente un carattere invidiabile, con un’affumicatura così morbida e delicata, e comunque convincente, come difficilmente se ne trovano. Il tutto arricchito da note legermente acidule, di cioccolato e di frutta scura che la rendono una birra perfetta da sorseggiare in una baita sommersa dalla neve, davanti al camino scoppiettante. O in qualunque altro posto, s’intende.

Lagerboy (1214) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
50 cl bottle. Clear dark amber hued brown, rocky tan creamy head slowly settles and lasts. Smokey roasted caramel aroma. Smokey singed malt taste, ashy and woody, some hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Could use more sweetness to balance it out. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
