Bottled. 10cl sample. Thanks Menno for the share. The aroma has smoked meat, toffee, slight grass. Clear, amber coloured beer with an off-white, medium head. The taste is light bitter, sweet, has toffee, some caramel and smoke mainly. Body is a little watery. Easy drinking smoked beer. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Menno, thanks! Quite some clean wood in the aroma, smokey, but quite different than the Bamberg smoked beers. Really well balanced and clean. Handypaul (584) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Geologyguy nails it in his review, "Smoked smell that is great! A good smoked beer, not quite as good as my favorite one...needs to be heavier and less watery, touch too much hops too". geologyguy (1687) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2014

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is very smokey, bbq, roasted malts. Flavor is has a massive woody presence over everything else. The smoke is also massive in this one. Very powerful, yet a very light and short aftertaste. Still a very nice one.

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Rusty orange color, small off-white to beige head. Aroma has a lot of smoke and smoky bacon. Taste malts, smoke, sweetish. Tastes better than it smells. Not my thing. deanso (10271) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - OCT 14, 2014
