2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminish head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel with faint smokiness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor with light caramel and faint hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel, faint smokiness and faint hoppyness. For those Schlenkerla is too much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hopfenwürziger Geruch, der nur andeutungsweise Rauchspuren zeigt. Mild rauchiger Beginn. Mitte dann angenehm würzig und moderat rauchig. Süßlich, mild bitterwürzig abgehend. Gut trinkbar - das Raucharoma könnte aber stärker sein.

It’s golden with a creamy head. The aroma is mild with weak notes of smoke, fruit and malt. The flavor is moderately sweet/sweet with meaty smoked notes, malt and a touch of fruit. Very boring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Landbierdealer. Clear golden colour with an amber glow, large fluffy head. I can’t detect any smoke in the aroma, perhaps some wood and ash. Malty background, very shy (but pleasant, neverthelesse) smoky flavours present. Slightly hoppy. A mild beer with a shy smoke background. Rather high carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden, small lacy white head, clear; sweet-grainy nose with molecular traces of smoke; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, soft, almost medium bodied; slightly lingering grainy-bitter finish with - again - very well hidden traces of smoke and also a discreet citrussy fruitiness. A beer for non-smokers.....
