3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very convincing beer with only 4.6%
Mint, cough medicine, ashes and malt. Aroma nicely smoky, hint of hops and lighty malty.
Hazy amber colour. White, thin but long lasting head that leaves lace.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky dark golden, tight snow white head, light lacing. Aroma has a nice smoky essence to it, some cured meat. Flavor has a nice smoky essence to it with some smoked ham, a touch of crisp honey pilsener like sweetness. Crisp mouthfeel. Let’s call this one decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"A big fluffy head, light smoke and noble hop aroma. Body is dry and medium bodied. Flavor could use a little more smoke, but this is already a decent hoppy pile so the smoked wood is just a bonus. "

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly roasted/smoked marzen aroma. 11.2 oz euro-longneck with a bad label. Foggy bronze beer with a clingy, almost-white head. Lightly sweet. Rauch-marzen. Cereal-bittering amidst the smoke. Almost like a dilute liquid smoke cocktail. Medium body, long bitter finish. Yeah, OK, nothing I want two of. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
