1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is horrible, sweaty feet, stinks. Taste malts, lightly a hint of bitter, a hint of leaves. Don’t know what this is but it’s pretty crappy imo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambrata opalescente, schiuma bianca di media persistenza.
Aroma di miele millefiori e malto d'orzo.
Al palato sempre miele e malto d'orzo con un finale erbaceo leggermente amaricante; prevale comunque la componente maltata.
Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.
Anche se semplice molto piacevole.

Bottle. Orange-amber colored and hazy with a white fine head. The aroma is dominated by caramel and honey, however not especially sweet. Some earthy, grass hops are in the back. The taste as well is sweet as one would expect, but not unpleasantly so. On the contrary the sweetness is well balanced with light bitterness. In the finish some alcoholic warmth comes up. Light bodied with medium carbonation and easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the last German beers which still make us of the ancient - and dangerous - technique of putting hot rocks in the kettle to make the wort boil. Moussy, regular, stable, light beige head, colour a slightly hazy amberish orange blonde with strong fizz fiercely rising up from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel, dry cookies, old cake, freshly toasted bread, iron but not too disturbing, damp cellar (probably due to storage conditions), herbal hops (tea). Sweetish onset, ’malt fruitiness’, light sourish accent, soft and rounded mouthfeel still with carbonation tingling on the sides of the tongue), smooth and slick malt backbone but a bit metallic as well, caramelly and indeed a bit ’toasted’ like roasted pine nuts, subtle, evolving into a primarily malty finish with persisting toasted bitterishness and balancing, earthy, herbal hop bitterishness; the drying carbonation lingers as well. Straightforward, like most German lagers, but well balanced and pleasantly going down. Interesting but clearly a lager so the classification under ’traditional ale’ here should not be taken litterally...

Beautiful Smoke bier. The Steinbier is an Old Austrian Recepie that Leikeim has recover and they produce is a very tradicional old way. I saw the Factory and the process how they produce.... was a factastic experience
