ozzatoadisback (141) - ITALY - MAR 14, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2017 Beatifully dark amber coloured with average height head. Ok retention and little lacing. Not extremely vivid aroma of caramel malts and delicate smokiness (smoked ham, ashes). Taste has a sweet malts base (caramel) nicely mixed with a surprising kind of full or maybe juicy umami feel of smoked meat (sorry im not really able to describe this better, in a way it reminds of provola cheese if you know what it is) and slight ashes. Bitterness is low to medium with a very nice kiss of floral hops. Light bodied with low to medium carbonation, with an easy and delicate mouthfeel. Overall this may not be a flavour bomb, but its just so enjoyable. A delicately rich and splendidly drinkable smoked lager. Excellent stuff.

Bottle, 4.9% alcohol. Beautiful deep amber color, with a small head, disappearing. Aroma is smoked ham, something sour, bread crust, leather. Taste is smoked, bread crust, malt. Medium bodied, lighter than the Schlenkerla. Dry finish, well balanced. Very nice.

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)

popiela (746) - 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 (1107) - 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 (4805) - 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.
