Grzesiek79 (3889) - Radom, POLAND - APR 2, 2016
Many thsnks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ze srednia piana, koloru jasno bursztynowego, klarowne. Aromat landrynek i zytniego chleba, nieco makreli. Smak slodowy karmel, toffi i lekka wedzonka, typu makrela. Ale spodziewałem się wiedzej tych akcentow. Nie mniej daleko temu piwu do Schlenkerli i Spezial - My Favorite Rauchbier. No ale w końcu nie było az tak zle

TAR (2651) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle purchased at the brewery, best by Dec. 2014 consumed in Aug. 2014: Coppery golden. Fine, pasty and creamy white foam. Polished aromas of minerals, flowers, toasted bread, tobacco, brown sugar and herbs. Lightly perceptible meatiness to the smoke. Lush, fine-bubbled carbonation. Fruity esters bring a bright punch of peach puree right out of the gate, which give way to rich smoked hay and the faintest hamlike tang. Pils malt reveals deep extraction and helps negate the meat qualities as vibrant hay dust is deposited across the palate. Bright and cleansing minerals dovetail with the perfectly measured Spalt, which provides a sassy fennel seed note. Nice toasty dryness also helps keep the meatiness at bay. Finishes spicily hoppy and subtly peachy, with a rich malt surge of breadcrust and smoked hay. Perhaps a bit simple, and I wouldn’t complain if this were more melanoidiny instead of meaty, but this is nicely clean and toasty, and the malt character is still quite lovely. Definitely has a character that exudes Franconia. Very sluggable rendition from a quality brewery.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle form a REWE in Bamberg. Copper in colour, with a decent, off-white, head. Smokey edge, some balancing berry sweetness, an almost savoury bacon edge before a soft, toasty, finish. Enjoyable.

Mortlach (1870) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 22, 2015
On tap @FrankenBierFest, la Limonaia di Villa Torlonia (Rome). Pours hazy amber with a medium head. Flavour is smoked, malt, bread, grain, some hops, a little metallic note that rapidly disappears. Flavour is delicate smoke, malt, some sweetness leading to a bitter end, watery, easy to drink, good! Light body, medium carbonation. Nice one.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from the brewery cold room, best by December 2014. Still, clear orange-gold, short head with large bubbles.
Honey sugar glazed ham smoke character in the nose, melanoidin-rich and meaty without any ash / char unpleasantness. Oily in the mouth, carbonation is just a tad brash. Would be syrupy if not for the solid mineral content. Nice contrast of sweetness and saltiness on a toasty malt core.

GSAP (685) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Subtiel zoete sigaar rook geurtje en iets scherp zoets als biobak in de positieve zin. Smaak is manderijn zoet met heel licht rook. Mooie goud oranje kleur, licht CO2. Nasmaak snel weg, wat bier een licht gevoel geeft. Van fles @ 24 uurs Maastricht.
