3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Pours coca-cola like ruby brown colour without a head or sparkles. Aroma is smoky with tar (railroad blocks and sailing ships) that brings up some good childhood memories. Not much else though. Some roasty malt and mild wooden notes. Taste has tar, roasty malt and mild caramel. A bit stingy carbonation, light to medium bodied and watery mouthfeel. Ashy and a bit burnt finish. A good smoked one and easy going but palate is thin and something missing to bring richness to the aroma and taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Brown / mahogny, clear. Nose has a good bambergian smokyness - the smoked wood, tar etc, malts and a bit of lager-yeast characters. Body is lighish, even refreshing. The smokyness is there, but not overpowering. There’s even some fruityness. Overall a nice, quite well flavored, lighter, smoked ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is lightly smoky, some tar, coffee, licorice. Clear ruby red, very short bubbly head. Taste is smoky in a good way, very pure and pleasant flavor. Same elements as in aroma. Soft light feel, light to medium body, dry, lght bitterness, nice smoky finish. I liked the smoke in this, good one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown beer with a quite weak and beige head. Aroma is pleasant and smoky, tarliquirice, some ham, nice aroma. Taste is malty, mild dry smoke, quite light and short taste. Light+, nice carbonation, too light body, richer body should give also more intensive taste. Quite nice smoked beer, but too light body and the short taste isn’t very convincing.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 11.05.2013
Aroma is sweetish and somewhat smoky with vanilla, tar and slight woody notes. Flavour has smoke, some tar and smoky ham. Also a slight grainy feeling. Not the richest smoked beer and a bit too sweet, but not bad anyway.

lots of smoke in the nose and it carries in to the taste also. otherwise lagertype of taste in the backround. lively carbonation. I liked the aroma nad the taste wasnt bad either but for some reason as a whole this beer wasnt that likable. not sure why.

Tastes great. Yet another successful Finnish brew. And among them the first smoked one genuinely worth its own points. Somewhat expensive, though.
