tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours copper with off-white head. The aroma is a touch skunky at first, but it fades; then the aroma is sweet caramelized malt with a toasty smokiness to it. The nose isn’t a meaty smoke like, say, Schlenkerla, but more of a smoldering deal. The flavor is pretty metallic with a focus on toasted malt and caramel. The actual smoke is quite tame, and reminds me more of a smoldering grass fire than the robust smokiness I want. Drinkable, but very disappointing.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Clear copper-orange with a thin white foam. Aroma is caramel, light woody smoke, but watery. Taste is metallic, still water, again light smoke and toasted caramel.

queensbeer (2) - Valladolid, SPAIN - MAR 31, 2009 does not count
33 cl from Carlota’s shop in Valladolid. Easy, thin smoked but a well-balanced beer. A little bit watery, I prefer more alcohol taste like old version...but it’s better than Adelscott beer from Heineken group.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Aroma has light smokiness, malt and a bit of caramel. Slightly unpleasant sweet flavor with some honey and some very lightly smoked malt and vegetal notes. Light to medium-bodied. Not so good and not a very smoked "Smoked".

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a crstal clear amber with a thin white head. A neutral malt in both the aroma and flavour. Slight notes of smoke and whisky sweetness in the finish - but that’s very slight. Easy drinking, though a little thin.

Stew41 (1753) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2009
Smoked? Dunno. More like a Vienna or amber to my tastes. Rusty amber in colour with zero head retention. Nose shows subtle (weak?) caramel and malt character, and definitely no smoke. Palate is fairly run-of-the-mill with slightly clunky and slightly heavy malt treatment that falls away very quickly in the back palate. A little spicey peat to finish and I’m trying hard to find that!
