Fass at the brewery gasthof, May. 2013: Rich amber. Broken head holds a thin ring. Unpolished nose of plastic, wax, plum, and medicinal alcohol. Milder scents of licorice, breadcrust, and a blend of earthy/nutty malt. Soft carbonation. Tad thin. Breadcrust bitterness merges with a plasticlike phenolic spice. Off-putting grapelike sweetness overshadows the unsweetened chocolate and nutty java notes. Plummy acids exaggerate the absence of ripe malt, which causes the colalike sugars to become rampant. Virtually no hop flavor, and zero brightness to quell the tacky residuals. Finishes sugary and scantly hoppy with fuzzy, poorly defined malt. A rather lackluster country lager.

Draft at Hoh. rauchbierlover (672) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2012
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (malt syrup, grain), with notes of dishrag, rotting fruit.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Horribly dirty tasting and sour. Apparently this is how it always is, based on comments from friends who visited before. Blech.
Tap @ the brewery. Dark amber body with a foamy not persistent white head. Malty and grassy aroma. Taste is grassy and hoppy. Mild bitte rfinish
