3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kihoskh.
Pours hazy amber with a fluffy white head.
Malt dominates the aroma, some smoke and hoppy pine notes.
Taste is citrusy, malty, hoppy and a bit smoky. Crisp!
Dry and bitter ending.
A little more smoked malt would not hurt.

So while this appears to be retired, I spied my first bottle of this in New York’s New Beer Distributors fairly recently. In any case, it did not taste old to me... Poured golden with a white head. Aroma was grass and a light amount of rauchbier style smoke. Taste was slightly sweet (maybe because of age), but built on a solid pilsner backdrop. The smoke was nice. It added a nice meaty taste to it. Overall, pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant smoked meats and smoked grains. High effervescence with a residual head, hazy yellow color. Moderate smoke flavor with appropriate level of hopping for a pilsner. It is nice when a lighter style is smoked since you don’t have to overload it. Crisp zesty body, nice dry after effects. Retired now like so many Mikkeller experiments, glad I sampled when I did.

Botella de 33 cl tomada varias veces en el lúpulo, la ultima en mayo de 2013, una buena pilsner ahumada con un cuerpo suave y un toque a humo bastante apreciable, ligera y muy fácil de beber, para empezar la jornada. Para repetir

So when you open this beer it just foams and runs out all over the place and that alone is grounds for disqualification. I really dont care what the excuse is and its too bad since its a decent tasting beer. No wonder "they" "retired" it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml brown bottle. Pours golden, light haze. Creamy white head on top. Nose has wood smoke with a soft whiff of smoked meat and some hops. Taste has grainy malt, bread, grassy hops and late, mild smokiness that takes a while to evolve. Noble hops in the aftertaste with a nice long bitterness and mild smoke notes. Overall an interesting brew with an appetizing aroma. I would have liked a more forceful smokiness in the taste, it’s a bit too subtle for me, it comes and goes and takes a bit of searching to find it. It;s there but I need more. It works fine as a hoppy pils though, so I’m happy with it in the end...

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden yellow with an orange hue and a huge frothy white head that leaves a ring of lace with every sip. Aroma of smoked malts, toast, Graham crackers, yeast and some floral hop notes. Taste is smoked malts, toast, spicy hops and grainy. Finishes clean and crisp with a dry finish. Has a really good balance and makes a rather boring style interesting with the addition of roasted malts.

Hieno pullo kyllä huijasi luulemaan liikoja. Vähän hätäisesti juotu aatonaattona. Pitäis olla savuolut, mutta ei tässä kyllä minkään maan savua ole. Älä osta.
