3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Golden colour! Expected a dark beer. Clear, medium fading head, some lacing, didn’t look overly lively. S: Subtle smoke as opposed to a smoke bomb. T: Basically its a Helles with a hint of smoke, has the malt and grassyness associated with that particular beer style. M: Low carbonation, light body, very smooth. O: Really surprised by the light colour, enjoyable but slightly below the Schlenkerla Helles.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of Benzai. Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head on top. Flavor is smokey, ashtray, cigarettes and old bacon and barbecue. Flavor has the barbecue essences again, but no really nice smokeyness, only filthy ashtrays and such. Not appealing at all, but fortunately behind the smoke, there is a decent lager.. Really not much more to say about this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale malt with a thin white nonlacy, lasting head. Smells of smoke roasted meat with caramel and pepper. Tastes of sewer malt, fruit, nut, and a ashy, meat smokey finish. Decent.
