1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle, 0,5 Litres ) Clear, dark brown colour with a slight head, on first draught much more sour than i expected, unbalanced body, no rudiment of smoke. In my point of view this beer is more a accidental variant of a bavarian Darkbeer than a franconian Smokebeer like Schlenkerla. --- 15.04.04

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber beer with olive shine; small yellow-amber head, fast gone. Malty, caramelly, not sweet nose. If I have to search for smoke, I would think of a bakery, or of chestnuts from the campfire - rather than of smoked ham. But it is there, unmistakably. Smoke is very obvious in the taste, even when lightly, as smoked mackerel filets without the "fishy" streak. Potatoes or chestnuts from the hot ashes. "Green" flavours as aromatic plants or herbs, mossy. Light bodied, reasonably dry. I’ve had this beer before on draught (probably at GBBF). It was less smokey then, and not noticeably better. Good, but unspectacular smoked beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Smoky ham aroma. Dark amber color with little head. Smoked meat flavor with moderate hops and acidic finish. Not an extremely smokey flavor - nicely balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet lager nose with a little peat, golden amber color, low lathery head (initially tall and rocky). Honey malt, big round and sweet body. Slight roaste nut end. Didn’t really get much smoke at all. Good, but disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber color, light head. Nice caramel and also medium intense clay nose. Light caramel taste with a short hoppy kick - short duration. Even knowing of the intended smokiness I could’nt taste any smokey aroma out. Nice brew but not overwhelming.

Bottle at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester (during RB Leicester crawl). Apply aroma (not that interesting) and another amber coloured beer for this long sesh. Baked bean flavour, with some warm metal and refreshing crispness. Errm, fairly nice stuff I guess.
