this was a weird brew. Had an aroma of smoked sausage, and the taste was pretty much the same, I’ll give it credit for being different, but I didn’t really like this guy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s.
Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate smoke malty and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet smoke flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectation where exceeded and went well with cheese and crackers during game.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber with a thin head that dissapates quickly.
Smells of light smoke and bready malt.
Flavor is very light with some plain biscuit and woody smoke. It finishes dry with no particular finishing flavor.
Not bad, but nothing stands out for this beer.

Pours a clear light amber with a tall sudsy head. The smell is very muted with malt undertones. The initial taste is light on the tongue with a dominant smokey flavor. The taste finishes with a slightly yeasty bread flavor with some hints of cereal at the very end. This would be a decent beer to compliment a meal with hearty German fare - think sausages and schnitzels. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer for a cold day.

Tap at Barcade. Deep amber beer. Aroma is lightly spicy. A bit of very light smokiness and a kiss of toasted malt. A little bit soapy though. A bit of tartness on the back. Quite non-descript and a little bit watery. Meh.

Bomber - Poured a clear darkish amber in color with a small whitish head that quickly faded to a thin rim around the top of the beer, Aroma is faint of the smokiness with some sweet maltiness besides. Flavor is quite smoky with plenty of the malt structure coming through. Nice palate. Interesting... and good...
