2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A shade darker than straw yellow no head. Nose is bland other than hint of smoke. Smoky mouth backed by crackery sweetness and faint grass. Not my cup of tea, but not too shabby none the less.

Smoky on nose but very light on palate, taste is very watery and a little hoppy..

It is a nice beer that you should try once. Buy it is not one of my favorite beers.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
A - Clear golden with a 1/2 inch chunky white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.
S - Brie cheese coated with honey, doughy bread, sour cream, buttery diacetyl.
T - Follows the nose somewhat, soft cheese, sour cream, tangy pear, buttery diacetyl. Thick crystal and pale malt, maybe a little thin smokiness. An unpleasant bad fruit character. Has a sour processed meat type of flavor. Finishes malty and sweet.
M -Low carbonation, thick and slick.
Nasty diacetyl. Gross movie popcorn type of diacetyl. It takes over all flavors and the finish is thick and narsty. No smoke, I don’t know what this is? This is close to undrinkable.
Serving type: bottle

Great aroma and taste. The one and only local smoked lager beer @ Turkish market. The smoke taste is very succesful, overall it deserves a 5 star rating

Looks like a lager, smells like cheese, tastes like a smoked meat.. An alternative taste from Turkey's first craft brewery..

Felt like you’re eating barbecued pig, but still nice, it’s stomach filling.

11.2 ounce bottle. From a beer of the month club many months ago. Just now tried. Pours a light gold with a small white head. Aroma of smoked bacon. Taste is similar. Not like any other smoked beer I have tried.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at Taps Bebek as Taps Smoked, so I suppose this is the correct one. Slight hazy golden coloured, small white head, weak and rather sour smoked nose. Sourish acidic malty taste with mild notes of smoked ham. Quite bland and possible infected beer. Not good. Have to try it again next time.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pale golden yellow with thin stark white head and very little lacing.
Smell: Cherry, bread, grass, light spicy hops, and the tiniest suggestion of smoke.
Taste: Strangely sweet with a massive layer of gasoline. When I think Rauchbier, I think of campfires and chargrilling, not licking a fuel pump. Some cherry, grass and light hops are nice but the gasoline somewhat ruins it.
Palate: Moderate carbonation and light body. The finish is not nearly as crisp or dry as desired with too much residual sweetness (maybe that is why the abv is so low).
Overall: Despite being a wretched example of a Rauchbier, it is somewhat drinkable. Not quite a drain pour.
