3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The first lager Iíve 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 isnít anything bad about this, there isnít 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 itís very light and there just arenít the other flavors there that would make it something great (like the marzen version... that was great). If youíre new to beer check this out for sure. If you like ales... go for one of the other versions.

Sampled from bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Clear dark orange color, medium sized white to off - white head. Smell smoke and bacon. Taste lightly malts, lightly smoke and lightly bacon. Fortunately the flavor is a lot better than the aroma. Average body and carbonation.

Bernstein golden color. Light head. Light smoke aroma which is stronger when drinking. Sweet in the beginning, bitter in the middle. Interesting smoke and wood aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clear copper body and small yet stable light beige head. Strong smoke aroma, sausage and roasted almonds. Clear base yeast. Taste isnít as smoked as the aroma, but still carries the woody dryness and meaty appeal, while the body is actually thin. Tasty, soft carbonation, never gets tired. Nice, easy brew. (50cl bottle from Wasanaís Getršnken Oase)
