rand (1660) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle 33 cl / Craftgallery - Bern (CH). Muddy and dark orang beer, without foam, just a flower in the middle. Pleasant smoked aroma, bacon, caramel. The taste is above all smoked, a delicate smoked of beech wood. The beer is a little soft and thin, there is fat caramel, biscuit, apricot and bergamotte. Finale dryier with a slight and earthy bitter.

In short: nic smoked marzen.
Pours little hazy amber-copper with little off white head (bottle was filled to the top). Little lacing, short retention. Smoked malts nose, intense, wood, fruity aromas. Medium body, average to low carbonation, some oily and little viscous texture (again, remember he bottle). Taste is smooth, smoked, present but not overwhelming, ripe dark fruits. some sweet. A nice smoked one from one the breweries i´found quite interesting this last summer in Franken.
