2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light, rich and persistent foam. The aroma is limited to a bit malt and in the taste, it has a slightly fruity taste in addition to a sustained hop bitterness. If i’m tasting deeply, I can taste a little bit of smoke, but it is far from what I expects from a smoked beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@cph. Brown clear. Tarry smokey nose. Jerkey, bbq sauce, herby liquor. Med bodied, bitter dryish finish. Dark sweet syrupy malty bready, some smoke, chocolate. And that tight yeasty roundness of a leger beer. Has some good qualitites, but overall not my thing. Getting a lot more of that herb liquor now, which is a good thing.

Tap@ Ølhus København. Mahogany color, thin off white head. Really smoky aroma, bacon, tar candy. Flavor has caramel, tar, mint and bready malt. Interesting enough, but feels artificial somehow.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle. Pours dark cola brown with an eruption of foam that disappears immediately. Final result looks like a pint of coke. Aroma is smoked meat and almost no else. Taste is light roastiness, some coffee, smoked meat. Too light and thin, excessive carbonation. First one I don’t like from Hornbeer. Maybe a bad bottle.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to LukasMH. Pours a reddish amber with a medium sized, off white head. Aroma has rusty nails, smoke, leather, pale and caramel malts. A bit of red apples. Taste is pretty watery, malty, slight smoke, pretty sweet, but over all weak. Not as bad as the aroma. Smooth body and avg. carbonation. Oh well..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber with light foamed head.
Nose is malty sweetness and quite pilsner malty. Not too smoky, sadly.
A little metal.
Sweet taste as well, not really very smoky.
A right dissapointment..

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty nice rauchbier - malts, some sweet fruit and a lot of "meaty" Bamberg smoke. Not as good as some of the Bamberg role models, but less will deffinately do.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Bright, dark reddish brown beer, thin dimishing head. Aromas of strong smoked ham, sharp/spicy rye bread, doughy sweet malts, a hint of vanilla, grains and herbal/fresh grassy hops. Malty liquid bread flavor, sweetish. Smooth, lager-like and clean. Bock? Medium to full body, malty, velvety. Light hoppy nimbling in the aftertaste. Quite nice.
