Clear straw yellow, with a thick fizzy head of white carbonation. Thin, but attractive lace.
Nose is grainy and malty like most lagers, but with a hint of wood-smokiness. Definitely appealing.
Taste is crisp and light, but with that hint of smoky malts again. This is not from the malts being actually smoked (as in Schlenkerla's other noteworthy beers), but simply from this lager being boiled in the same copper kettles as the smoked beers, and perhaps from sharing the same yeasts as the aforementioned rauchbiers.
A delightful lager, full of flavor and with a unique and subtle flavor twist. Wonderful!
