2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. Pours a slightly hazy yet strangely clear pale golden colour with a big white fluffy head, retains and laces nicely. Nose is grainy malts and greasy smoked ham, boiled carrots and turnips; tastes like a subpar lager with weak but quite balanced malt sweetness and herbal hop bitterness, also some of this smoked ham thing going on there in the background. Plasticky. Body medium, carbonation too, palate slick and oily (not pleasant), finishes with skunky herbal bitterness. Not a good beer. Glad to have tried it though.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours gold with white head. Aroma is smoke, cooked vegetables and malt. Flavour is smoke, bitter and vegetables. Something doesn’t match well together. There’s some puke aroma in there.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, courtesy of TM. Pours a yellow lager with a decent, white head. Aroma is pale malts, a bit of smokiness in there. Taste is much of the same, a pale lager with pale malts, a bit of grass, some smoke. Alright.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours clear golden in color with a whitish head. Smoke, rubber, light notes of malts and honey in aroma. Smokey taste, old rubber and farmhouse cellar notes in taste. Some mildly smoked meat as well. Nice, didn’t expect this one to be that flavorful. Reminds a bit of the Spezial Rauchbier Märzen aus Bamberg actually. A bit lighter version obviously, but still there’s that same vibe again. Smoke, wood and ham to be more precise.

Draught at praha, tampere. Clear golden color with some white head. Aroma reminds me of christmas ham, some smoky, malts. Taste of smoke, malts, medium co2. But quite light taste after all.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (50 cl), courtesy of ingo. Clear golden, medium white head. Smokey sausage aroma with a touch of bon fire. Semi dry, medium bitterness. I tend to dislike smoked beers and I found this particularly nasty.
