Notes/Commercial Description:
Caution! This is an intensely smokey lager similar to those found in Bamberg, Germany. Most of this brew's malt was dried over flaming beechwood, which ingrains unique smokey flavors. Aromas of campfires, smoked ham, and bacon dominate a soft malt and hop backbone. Although hard to believe, this beer is vegan friendly.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours pale yellow with a head that dissipates to a faint ring. No lace.

Nice smoke nose. Close to bacon.

Smoke up front, some ham notes, but not a lot. Expected this to be a real meatball, but it isn't. Moreover, the malt isn't here either. Mild and somewhat dry, it becomes an off balance beer that lacks complexity. Dries out and is smoky and mildly bitter with a slight malt note.

Lighter bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Has alot of hits, and a few big whiffs at the plate.

Serving type: bottle
