3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks!
Super rubbery smoky aroma. Lovely smoky body. Light palate, super drinkability, but full too, and pleasant carbonation. Do I get some smoked herring in there? Finish is predictably phenolic. Very much a "smoked", but the malts are good here too, it’s not just the smoke. Finish is biting from both the smoke and also bitter hops. Very nice.

500ml bottle from Bochka in Moscow. Front of label says (in English) Smoked Brown Ale, back says (in Russian) Light unfiltered unpasteurised "Smoked Pale Ale"... eh? Pours cloudy brown with a small yellowy head. Big smoke aroma. Dry taste with smoke, hops and caramel.
