Jamesthebrit (421) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
The first lager Ive had in like...a year. Here we go... A: Smells just like a smoked sausage. Amazing aroma. Smooth and balanced. A: Looks like a lager... light on bubbles. Crystal clear. Amber color. T: While there isnt anything bad about this, there isnt anything great either. Well balanced with the smoke but drinks much like a soda water. For the style though, this is very nice. P: Sits fine but its like water. Overall for the style this is a pretty solid beer. It brings something unique to a lager and is overall smooth. But, being a lager its very light and there just arent the other flavors there that would make it something great (like the marzen version... that was great). If youre new to beer check this out for sure. If you like ales... go for one of the other versions.

Cristobal37 (1002) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 22, 2017
Bottle from getranke Fritze, Wurzburg. Beef jerky aroma. Big smoky malt forward beer. Smoked salmon skin, sticky mouthfeel, filling but still balanced. Smokier than Schlenkerlas Lager. Fantastic Bamberger smoked bier!

Werckmeister (2679) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 19, 2017
0,5l bottle at home from trade with Maracuja05, big thanks. BB 09.05.2017. dark brown color, small off-white head. smells of bacon, light smoke, spices, some caramel, nice smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes rather light, some bread, light sausages, spices, caramel, bit of smoke. finishes lightly sweet with notes of caramel, spices and some sausages. quite nice one, rather light (both smoke / bacon and body), but this makes it quite smooth to drink.

ozzatoadisback (145) - 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.

popiela (823) - 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.
