3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (4.9% ABV).
Clear copper colour, medium sized off-white head.
Smell of smoked malt.
Mild smoky aroma escorted by toffee, dough and hints of grassy hops.
Sweetbitter finish with citrusses and toasted malt.
Light amber, misty, poor foam. The nose is rather gentle, just some crushed peppercorn and some toasted grain. Nice meaty smokiness in the taste, juicy pastrami, with some light caramel and some faint nail polish. Some hints of baked apple, too. Aftertaste has just some light smokiness, but otherwise it’s pretty clean. Refreshing, but it lacks depth. Not as good as the old version. beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
Dunkles Kastanienbraun mit wuchtiger Krone, die aber schnell zerfällt. Röstmalziger Antrunk, feine Rauchnoten von Schinken und Buchenholz, feinherb im Abgang. mgajdaczewa (2098) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 8, 2017
European Beer Swap Tasting #4 po raz to to mało co wędzone było. Po 2 diacetyl. po 3 karmel i cukier. Mdłe strasznie. Słabe. MikeBeermaster (829) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Aroma is dominated by caramel with notes of butterscotch. Deep amber in the glass with frothy off-white head. Taste is semi sweet with notes of caramel, some bready touch, dried fruit and gentle smokiness in the background, however beer is bit watery. Nothing special at all, caramel is my enemy in that kind of styles. Werckmeister (3126) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 11, 2017

Bottle from Lekkerbier, Sint Nicolaasga. Aroma is smoked malt, burnt wood, smoked ham, caramel with a slight touch of dried fruits. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. A very proper Rauchbier, good smoke and goes down easily. WillemsUrenkel (1823) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2017

A very drinkable Rauchbier, along the lines of Spezial’s Rauchbier JoeinDahlem (1503) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Attractive ruby-amber color, very subtle smoke character in the nose, low bitterness, low to medium residual sweetness, light tangy-bready acidity... A fairly easy drinking beer but it could have more to say.
