Bottle (Bavarian Style - different than the one pictured). Dark brown color, stable head. Strong smoke aromas with a fresh, watery body. Bitter finish. Highly drinkable. Not that smoky as Schlenkerla, not that creamy as Spezial.

Flavour is delicate smoke, malt, low sweet leading to a bitter end, a bit watery, easy to drink and fresh, amazing! Light body, medium carbonation. Amazing brew!
