Reviewing the Oak Aged Bamberg Brew (cask version) from Titletown Brewing Company out of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Score: 87

4 oz sample glass enjoyed as part of a flight on 12/13/12.

Appearance: Pours a dark, but clean copper color with a good deal of clarity. Pours a couple of fingers of beige head that settles to a thick ring around the glass. Poor lacing, average retention. 3/5

Smell: Barley malt, grain, hint of corn meal. Faint, faint hops. Light oak and a lighter amount of smoke. 3/5

Taste: The nose really downplays the quality of the taste! The oak is much more prevalent and plays nicely with a subtle smoke complexity that adds a good liveliness to the tongue without overwhelming and destroying the palate. Barley malt, faint caramel behind that. Very malty backbone. Not very complex, but refreshing. Maybe I am just a sucker for smoked beers. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Nice, faintly prickly mouthfeel from the oaky smoke. Not much carbonation at all. Just shy of medium bodied. 4/5

Overall: I was underwhelmed by the base beer, but the oak aged cask version was much better. Still nothing amazing, but quite solid nonetheless. I'd order another.

Recommendation: Fans of the style should order this if/when in Green Bay.

Cost: $5 for 16 oz pint pour that comes in a 20 oz nonic pint glass (don't ask).
