Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Day 3 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, bottle from Spezial shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising, 26/01/14. Clear dark amber with a moderate beige covering that retains well. Nose is smoked malts, toffee, smoked gammon, bread dough. Taste comprises caramel, smoked malts, brown sugars, earthy bread tones. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Great stuff, decent level of smoke, well balanced, the best train beer of the weekend (the CDA aside) !

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2013
On tap at Bierbörse Osterode. Deep golden in the glass, light brownish, small head. Mild-smokey aroma. Starts mild malty, modest roasty-smokey, not too intense. Finish still mild, modest smokey, hints of cookies. Some notes of caramel. Not bad!

Bottle direct from Bamberg. I’ve only recently turned the smoked beer corner, however drinking this I realized that I prefer a lighter smoked beer. With this one and the Schlenkerla Marzen you get a palatable dose of smoked malt. I prefer the smoked Weizen personally. A filling beer, that couples great with pork chops. Thanks Lajos!

kapusil (514) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber body, white head. Aroma of smoked ham and bread. Taste of bread, grain and smoke. A bit too light bodied for a märzen, but still a nice beer.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Limpid and a little fraught red color, discreet bubbly presence and very good foamy and creamy head resistance. Poor malty aroma with a decided and remark smokey smell. Notes of booze and smoked resin and cortex, much wooden. Medium prickly taste, good alcoholic body with a mighty smooked notes, ash, and arid long final. Very agreeable beer.
