3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Served in a glass stein:
A lively beige light brown head, disappears as quick as a cider has a disappearing head. What’s going on?
A headless cloudy hazy brown colored beer.
Aroma has just a very light smokey tone with malt toast, caramel, toffee, peat, some raisin, figs, bit sweet, not really more to detect but a pretty nice aroma overall.
Flavours of smoked malts, creamy, spicy, bitter, wood, hint of leather, caramel, raisin and pruned with some tobacco.
Aftertaste is a mix of toast/light roast, bitter, spicy, earth, some malts and a sprinkle of dark fruit.
Medium carbo, creamy lightly lightly blown mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Expected a bit more, because it is light smokey and a bit simple, but on the other hand it’s easy drinkable and is in balance... Just a bit more smoke and you would have a good Rauchbier.
