Trübes Goldorange mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, Raucharomen, etwas Speck, mineralisch, leicht wässrig. heavy (2908) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 29, 2017
Sep. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Mali Ducan, Split. It poured a hazy lighter yellow body with medium sized head. Smoked ham aroma with fruity notes. Flavor was lightly bitter herbal, peppery with strong ham and peat smoked counterpart. Finished quite rounded, with biscuit malty and herbal/peppery bitter hops, both overwhelmed with peat. Pretty full bodied for a light beer like this. A decent smoked. Holmen2 (4115) - NORWAY - MAR 15, 2017

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of wood smoke, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale/smoked malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big wood smoke, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wood smoke, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of pale/smoked malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very nice smoked Czech pilsner style. All around nice robustness and balance of pale/smoked malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Was expecting more smoke initially; but there is still a nice amount there, while still tasting true to the base style. A very enjoyable offering. Sun33 (28) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2017
