Gunslinging Helles is yet another German inspired beer for 2011, making this the fourth after our Gose, Offen Weisse, and year-round Engelberg Pilsener. This is a smoked version, inspired by Schlenkerla, the legendary Bamberg brewery. Gunslinging Helles is made with over 160 pounds of vienna malt that has been hand smoked with maple scraps from the bar top at the Grain and Gristle plus additional ash wood. The aroma is robust while the flavor plays out more delicately, with a smooth malty middle and dry yet soft finish.

On tap at Biercafe / Belmont Station, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of herbs, bread and spices (coriander). Flavour is massively herbally and funky, with horse blanket, ash, smoke and leather. Solid for the style.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Tap @ The BeerMongers Anniversary Fest... Poured golden with a thick, foamy, off-white head. Floral, with a slight smokiness. Flavors of malt, popcorn, burnt like tones, and a clean yeast character. Foamy, slightly dry palate.
