thellgren (293) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2014
0.5 l draught @ Plevna, Tampere. A smoked beer in the Bamberg style. However, it feels in my mouth more like tar than smoke. That is not bad though, but I would have preferred more subtle smoke aromas. This is an aggressive smoke beer. Still very nice and tasty.

Marstonlad (437) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Tap at Bryggeri Helsinki. Pours reddish brown with a medium-sized frothy head. Aroma of smoked malts, ham and tar - does not differ greatly from the Bamberg classics. Taste is light sweet and roasty; it offers smoky maltiness, rye bread and tar, only a little ham. Palate is light to medium bodied - only - with a medium to high carbonation. Not bad but the best smoked beers like Schenkerlas or Vakka-Suomen Savukataja are much richer in taste.
