Look; pearl white head, clear golden body.

Taste; hay, pale malts, peat, tar, grass -
finishes in hops with tar.
Feels average, soft fizz.
Overall; if you’re out of sausages and only have cheese after xmas, this beer saves your evening.

Bottle. Golden clar. Slight tarry, smokey, bit woody smokey nose, plain malts. Med light bodied, pretty ok flavoured. Bit hayish malty, some herbs in the finish, golden malty. A lot better than expected. Good smoke, pale refreshing though.

vm2015, BBE 21-03-16. Vaalea lager, ei vaahtoa, savuisahko lihaisahko aromi. Sama jatkuu maussa, muutoin melko perusohutta ja vetistä lageria.

Golden yellow, clear and has a smallish head on top. Aroma has smoked ham, some barley malts and more smoke. For some reason this tastes like fresh smoked beer. Malts are there and the smokey notes are not over the top. Quite thin and medium carbonation.

Oh, smokey. It starts strong, but fades away on the way. Strange appearance considering the taste. Smoked beer is hard. Smokiness is usually dominant shading other tastes.

500ml bottle, thanks to Finn for sharing. Fair pearl white head remaining over a bright golden coloured body. Dotted spots on the glass. Smoked malty aroma, sausage like. Taste of sausage with fruity hops behind. Medium to thin bodied. Alright, however, I would not say that it fits the season (Tromsø 11.02.2015).

Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune på Nerstranda 11 Feb 15. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum. God baconaroma. Beskjeden & behagelig. Smaken i samme gate. Antydning til frukt etter hvert. Ikke noe typisk juleøl - men kunne sikkert vært utmerket til røkt julemat.
