Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a white head. Smells like a bamberg smoked beer. Tastes slightly tarte and minerally with a smoky finish. I am happy to see gose separated out, but why lump it in with lichtenhainer and grodziskie?

Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2017
(Bottle) Hazy golden orange colour with foamy, white head. Malty, slightly sourish nose with notes of peaches, white bread, a touch of salt and a gentle smoke aroma. Malty, slightly tart taste with peaches, lemon, white bread, hay and a finish with a gentle smoke character and low bitterness. Medium body, dry. The combination of the light lactic tartness and the gentle smoke character is really interesting and makes the beer very refreshing. Nice one.

jh773 (307) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Very cloudy rust-red orange with a normal two-finger head. Smell is tart, salty. Taste is very smooth with no sourness at all. A bit like salted caramal with all the sweetness removed, not sure how else to explain it.

3.4
peponi (1943) - Hannover, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2017
Aroma: smoked ham, light acid notes. Appearance: hazy golden color and thin white head. Taste: intensive smoked notes, light sourness, thin malty backbone, bonfire, semi-dry. Palate: low body and high carbonation, smoky finish. Overall: really nice lichtenhainer, should be probably a little bit more sour.

3.6
cattaneopapa (417) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2017
500ml bottle from LCBO. 6%alc./vol. Pours a deep gold colour with one finger of head. Aromas of smoked sausage and yeast. Taste matches the aroma with some sour notes. I guess it would be nice to have it with some german sausage and saurkraut at Oktoberfest...but other than that it’s nothing spectacular Reviewed on 10/10/2016

dwyerpg (6368) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 23, 2017
Such a strange beer. A medium smoke to the aroma. The flavor is both sour and smoky, a strange combination that is both enjoyable and off-putting. Just weird.

3.4
dnicolaescu (2680) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 8, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Dark golden with lots of floaties, ivory head. Gentle maltiness, a bit fruity, nice moderate smokiness. Similar taste - round malts, slight smoky spicy. Balanced and tame.

3.4
Maakun (6297) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy golden with small white head. Some smoke, light malts, soft lactic notes, soft dried fruits, campfire, light ham. Nice balance between smoke, fruits, malt and soft lactic notes with coresponding light sweetness and sourness. Just medium bodied. Quite good for a smoked beer.

3.4
sjogro (4648) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Bottle shared at samenscholing. Hazy golden with white head. Dry grains, light smoked sausage. Light sour, bitter and sweet, vaguely salty. Medium body and sandy feel, or maybe that’s my tongue after Maakun’s homebrew cider, quite alright.

3.6
fidelis83 (2497) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2017
Hazy peach to golden pour with a two finger, soapy, off white head. Aroma is smoke, crabapple, lactic tartness, hints of earthy leaves new moss, grass and spicy hops. Flavor is smoke, bread, sweet wheat, a faint hint of bubblegum, light perfumey, citrus and mineral notes. Medium body, slick to oily feel, light, blanketing, sharp carbonation, slick finish. Pretty tasty, I believe it’s the first I’ve had of the Lichtenhainer style, but it’s intrigued me enough to seek it out.
