beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Pours a nice gold-orange color, with a small but tight head that leaves huge lace all the way down the glass. It is a little hazy. Aroma is softly smoky, grainy, and toasty, very nice and sweet. Flavor is grainy and smoky, malty sweet with a very restrained noble hop. Smoke comes through the most in a soft aftertaste. Very pleasant beer with a great but restrained smoke character.

Alla spina. Aroma di cereala, miele e tocco affumicato più leggero rispetto alla Marzen. Sempre con un ottima bevibilità.

Franzen (317) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Leathery smoke aroma. Amber clear white head. Lots of leather and some smoke in the taste. Long lasting smokey finish. Fantastic smokiness with enough body in the background although being a lager.

Bottle at home courtesy of mctapps, cheers Sabine
slightly hazy mid amber brown with minimal white lacing. Gentle beechsmoke and caramel. Smokey, moderate body and carbonation, fruity, biscuit, long bready finish.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Half for me and half for the Chilli that I’m cooking. I figured the smoke would be just what the chilli needed. We’ll see. Pours Deep clear Amber with an off-White head. Wet wood smoke on the nose. Quite a decent, dry lager with just a touch of smoke to it. I rather enjoyed it though I reckon my chilli would have preferred a more dramatic Rauchbier.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Vom fass at the brewpub. Clear copper pour with foamy white head. Nice smoky aroma, rich chewy smoke, definitely in schlenkerla’s league, meaty, bacon notes, clean. Taste is smoky, potent smoky flavors with nice subtle malt base, never sweet or yeasty, very clean and dry, super easy drinking. Palate is light, maybe just a tad watery, light carbonation. Good stuff.

Bottle. Orange gold in color with a small head. Aroma was indeed smokey. Taste was also amokey, kind of like a smoked ham.

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml at Pivkan, Zagreb. Pours amber with white head. Smoked aroma. Malty smoked flavor. Just the right quantity of smokiness. My favorite smoked beer so far.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kupferfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht rauchig, röstmalzig, getreidig. Geschmack getreidig, malzig, leicht fruchtig, Karamell.
