Jamesthebrit (484) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
The first lager I’ve 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 isn’t anything bad about this, there isn’t 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 it’s very light and there just aren’t the other flavors there that would make it something great (like the marzen version... that was great). If you’re new to beer check this out for sure. If you like ales... go for one of the other versions.

romanstep (729) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 27, 2017
W nosie wyraźnie, dominuje ogniskowo-kiełbasiana wędzonka, później przebija się trochę karmelu i tostów. Barwa miedziana, klarowne, ładna beżowa piana. W smaku zadziwiająco lekkie, dość wytrawne, trochę też takie bitterowe, ale wędzonka nie pozwala zapomnieć, że jest to rauchbier. Goryczka niska, ziołowa. Lager + słody wędzone = dziwne połączenie. Butelka do 09.01.2018
