3.33/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

50cl bottle poured into Spaten seidel

BBE 23 NOV 11

A- Orangey copper body with excellent clarity. Rocky 3 finger white head sits atop with moderate retention and average to minimal lacing.

S- Faint hickory smokiness with a little mustiness. Some grain and caramel malt sweetness.

T- Hint of smoke in the beginning, sweeter caramel malts coming through with an unexpected green apple fruity tinge with a grainy malt finish. Finish is clean but flavour profile seems messy.

M- Moderate carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

D- Not a prime specimen but was cellared well. Not enough smoke and the fruitiness definitely shouldnt be there. Not one i would seek out.

Half litre bottle. Poured a medium tanned head that went fast, amber colour, clear. Smoked meat smell with notes of malt but hard to detect much else. Tasted smoked meat, got more malty and less meaty as it warmed, smokey finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly coarse. Fairly similar to Schlenkerla Rauchbier, but a bit less meaty.
