0.15 l on tap at Craft & Draft. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, creamy, stable, tan to white head. Sweetish, smoky-malty aroma of smoked ham, caramel and sweet grains. Sweetish, smoky-malty taste of smoked ham, caramel and sweet grains, followed by a short, sweetish-smoky and slightly bitter finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not too smoky and quite sweet but very enjoyable. Nice!

Spina @ Scurreria.
Chiara con bella schiuma.
Si sente affumicato della casa, ma invade meno rispetto a marzen.

On tap at the source, pours a hazy medium honey color with a light tan head. The smell is to toasted malt, mild smoke. The taste is as is smells...mild sweetness sending smokey and dry. A nice summer brew. Light in body with elegant carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At the source in Bamberg-Germany, from gravity keg. Pours amber hazy color, medium gassy off-white foam. Nose: mild smoke character, with some malty distinctive notes. Floral too. Nice!. Mouth: soft carbonation, almost flat which makes it perfect for drinking sessions. Medium body. Bread crust, herbal end. The softest smoked beer of my trip and one of the best I have ever had here in Franconia. Apparently I was very lucky to find it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Brown colour, small foamy white head. Aroma is smoked, a bit ashy along with some ryebready and strange sweetness to it. Flavour is very similar in a good balance. A bit on the sweeter side, but still a nicely balanced brew.
