In our not-so-humble opinion, if there is such a place as “beer mecca,” it’s Franconia in northern Bavaria. There, in and around the baroque city of Bamberg, the tradition of smoked beer has been carried over the centuries and is still going strong today. We’ve modeled our smoked white rye lager after the best examples of the Bamberg style, which are delicately smoked, but we’ve also added a wealth of aromatic hops, in proper American fashion.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Hazy blonde color with a small white head. Aroma is of malt, some lemon, grainy and smoky bacon (mild though). Taste is much smokier, lots of smoked meats, bacon with some hoppy background. Interesting , but I would prefer if it was backed by some toasted notes, different malt type and a bit less hops.

sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2012
Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is smoke and sour notes. Flavour is smoke, sour, acidic and light malt.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a hazy and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, caramel, peat and some smoke. The flavor follows the nose with additional hops. The palate is smoke and bitterness. Overall a strange beer below average.

Christian (13680) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2012
Odense Catching Up on Stuff Left in the Cellar Event July 2012. Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. The aroma has meaty and leathery smoke, a touch of citrus and floral notes. Dry and a little lemon tart flavour with smoke pointing one way and refreshing fruit the opposite.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Well carbonated, light citrus, smoke, lemon. Carbonation is tad high and distracts from the palate a bit, but the citrusy, lemon flavors from the hops work better than I would have thought with the smoked malts. Interesting beer to say the least and not a trainwreck as might be expected.

Plovmand (8482) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is bit hoppy and light sourish with some smoked notes. The flavour has some sour notes, hops, ham and smoke. Bitter fruity finish.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle from KHIOSKH. Copenhagen, March 2012.
Aromas of rye malts, a light soft smoky edge. With some hops and funk. Soft body and texture. Quite drinkable but nothing I’d go for again.
