Ungewöhnlich ist es. Süffig, mit leichten Anleihen von Honig und ordentlich geräuchertem Aal im Abgang. Gar nicht mal so übel wue erwartet.

Oh dear Lord, how did I deserve to get this beer into my online beer order? I am a non-smoker and I just can’t stand smoked beer, but well - what’s there has to be drunk....This awful brew pours out quite nice and innocent: Clear amber colour,, low head, medium body. It all starts with the aroma and this one is quite heavy: Smoked ham of a Polnish delikatessen. Full stop. The taste is right after the palate the worst thing about this beer: Smooked eel, smoked ham, smoke, woods, campfire and malt. Finish of smoked fish. Of all smoked beer experiences (really, I try to avoid them at any time and even if there won’t be new beers at the shops I would never buy a not-yet rated smoked one) this one was by far the mildest and easiest one. Not really delicious either but (compared to other ones in this style) easy to drink. But after all I can say one more: I wll never like or even enjoy this kind of beers.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice small head. Starts mild but not washy. Dominated by malty notes, fine spicy, not much hoppy notes. Interesting hints of caramel. Well balanced finish and quite drinkable. Nice!
