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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
