Pour from a bottle into a pint glass, A dark brown clear beer with a slight reddish tint. Not a frothy beer only developing a small 1 finger head. Not much lacing but I finished it off fairly quickly. A lovely beer to the eye.

A nice smokey aroma, like a campfire in the fall.

Great flavor, smokey yet light on the palate, nice balance, has an almost peaty flavor.Very smooth lightly carbonation. Just enough bitterness on the end to prevent sweetness.

I had never seen a smoked marzen before finding this. I brew my own smoked marzen on that account. I would highly recommend this beer. I will still beer my own-having one right now to compare the flavor-as it is more cost effective.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours a deep brown with a frothy light tan head that laces quite well.

S: Salty smokey bacon and roasted malt.

T: Roasted malt sweetness (really comes out as it warms) followed by a nice hit of smokey bacon, a little light citrus, and some coffee like bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium body, almost creamy, moderate carbonation.

O: Very different and quite tasty. Layers of flavor come out as it warms.

500ml bottle. Pours dark clear brown with a minimal beige head. Has a pleasant barbeque pit smokiness on the nose with some toasted malt and grains underlying on the taste. A medium body on the palate with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a toasted malt, earthy grains with a gentle smoked campfire flavor. A very good drinking and enjoyable brew.
