Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours clear honey-gold with a creamy white head. Good smoked malt aroma, some bread, light butterscotch. Medium sweet flavor with some sugary bread, more smoke, caramel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately smokey on the finish with more bread, slight caramel notes. Nice one.

Výborný rauchbier, vyvážená chuť, nádherná vůně a konzumace přímo v pivnici spezial v Bambergu to vše jen umocní .-)

djoeye (3640) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
Off white smooth standing cream, clear copper body, puffy small lacing. Brown malts, peat, tar, basement, leafy hops to the nose. Tarish malts and a solid fruitiness to the taste buds, leading to a smooth malty finish with smokey notes. Overall a good brew. [50cl brown bottle 5.3%abv BB10-09-2015 , T@Ferie2015]

ippopotamo36 (1665) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
Gravity keg from the source at the Spezial brewery in Bamberg-Germany. Pours filtered Amber color, ivory brownish tick head. Vivid texture! Nose: mild provola cheese, smoked meat. Mouth: medium carbonation, mild body, mild smoke feel in a full bodied brink which is more complex than their regular smoked lager but never invasive. A very hide but distinctive herbal end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
