3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber coloured with a big dense head that leaves suprisingly nice lazings behind. Aroma is slightly smokey, slightly fruity and metallic in a rather nice "german" way. Flavour is rather full, fruity and slightly smoked with notes of minerals and refreshing hops. Very drinkable and pleasant, round but with slightly too many metallic notes. Body is medium and round with fine bubbled carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright amber-brown with a thick, rocky head. Lightly smoked aroma with caramel, toffee malts. Fairly full body. Sweet Munich malts and a light smokey accent. Soft finish with a light woody dryness. I greatly prefer this to the regular smoked lager and wish this came from the barrel instead (esp at the Keller).
