On tap at the source.

A clear deep red with a thin off-white head with good retention and lacing this looks solid. The nose is soft and subtly smoky with smoldering wet leaves , mild oak smoke, Woody and mild toast with a nice smoke, smoky toast, all mellow and earthy. Mild bready, caramelized Munich malt notes. The palate opens with a blend of hops, earthy, leafy , mildly bitter along with a smoky , earthy, toast note. Strangely light in body, lighter than I was expecting. Mild caramel sweetness with a bready depth to it. Bitterness, softly and gently smoked, lingers on into the finish. Creamy carbonation, but the light body really detracts IMO.

A perfect amount of smoke introduced to a wonderfully toasty, bready, slightly caramelly sweet concoction. Remarkably smooth and well rounded with bold aromas and flavors of the above mentioned. A real delicious treat. As a huge fan of Schlenkerla's famous Maerzen, this one is a bit more approachable (for the potentially smoke-curious) and overall just a wonderfully made beer.

Cheers.
