3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The first lager I’ve had in like...a year. Here we go...
A: Smells just like a smoked sausage. Amazing aroma. Smooth and balanced.
A: Looks like a lager... light on bubbles. Crystal clear. Amber color.
T: While there isn’t anything bad about this, there isn’t anything great either. Well balanced with the smoke but drinks much like a soda water. For the style though, this is very nice.
P: Sits fine but its like water.
Overall for the style this is a pretty solid beer. It brings something unique to a lager and is overall smooth. But, being a lager it’s very light and there just aren’t the other flavors there that would make it something great (like the marzen version... that was great). If you’re new to beer check this out for sure. If you like ales... go for one of the other versions.

Cerveja com aroma característico de cerveja produzida a partir de malte defumado. Porém tem corpo leve, e alto drinkability, exceto pela característica defumada. Cor acobreada e bastante limpida.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Belgrade Eighth Tasting, round two. Bottle. Gorgeous pour, fuzzy then turns brown. Good tan foam. Softer smoke aroma, a bit rich body, smoke is strong but balanced. A touch of salt and lagering sour, rich body. Very tasty.
