Cask (Bishops Arms Bellmansgatan, Stockholm) (6-:4:6-:3:12+=3.1+)
Pleasant soft smokiness. Fairly watery palate. Super high drinkability. Nice dark lager - smoke is a very pleasant component, but very subtle. Not too sweet, unlike some smoky dark lagers. A slamming session beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Akkurat in Stockholm. clear copper body with a foamy and rocky white head. robust and rich nose of honey-drizzled smoked ham, light touches of campfire and peat. with time develops more of a Munich toffee note that’s rich and sticky. medium-light body with superb balance - toasted, firm malt with good acid, low hop rate, medium sweetness that works well for it’s 5% size. perhaps the closest to the real thing I’ve had outside of Germany.
