Bottle. Mahogany colour. Very malty (caramel, toffee, vanilla). Nice subtle light smoky taste. Some grassy hops. Smooth, malty sweet taste. Light dry finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Enjoyable easy drinking malty lager. (2008)

Stated 4,7.
Pours hazy copper with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, litle lacing. Smoked nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, smoky, some sweet. Smooth and smoked notes not palate saturating. Good.

popiela (710) - Pozna, POLAND - DEC 10, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 Butelka 0,5l. Aromat z butelki bardzo intensywnie wędzony, ognisko i oscypek. Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, średnio obfita piana. Klarowne. Ze szkła więcej oscypka, bardzo przyjemnie. W smaku dość słodko, słodowo, wędzonka już nie tak intensywna jak w aromacie. Finisz ziołowy, przyjemny. Umiarkowane nasycenie.

Ritzn (984) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2016
Clear ruby with medium wite head. Aroma is smoky bacon, some noble hops, grass. Taste is umami, sweet malt with normal hop bitterness. Not so heavy on the tongue, much bacon in the finish. Bah.

Maakun (4644) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2016
Tap at In de Wildeman. Clear light amber with beige head. Lots of smoked meats, caramel, light herbs, ash, more smoke, greasy ham, light apricot. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied with crisp feel. Nice beer, but too smoked for me. Still quite good.

Copper clear colour, light off white pillowy head. Aromas of smoke, toasted malts, bacon develops. Briskly tangy, bright texture with a slender body. Briskly sweet with smokey toast flavours. Medium lasting finish.

McSherman (620) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2016
kupferfarben, klar mit schnem weiem Schaum. In der Nase kndigt sich eine starke Rauchnote an, die Lust auf den ersten Schluck macht. Und ab dem ersten Schluck wei das Bier dann auch zu berzeugen: frisch, angenehm malzig und ordentlich (aber nicht zu wuchtig) rauchig. Und vor allem sehr harmonisch. Macht Lust auf mehr. Empfehlung!

Bottle at home, dark amber beer, small head. Aroma is smoked ham, smoke. Taste is smoke, ham, wood, sweet. not bad, its like walking into an old fashion butchershop.
