Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Salm Bräu Böhmisch G´mischt (means bohemian mix) has it's origin in the Czech Republic, like the Pilsner. The bohemian dark beer was the compensation to the more hoppy aromatic Pilsner beer. It was completely dark, no light went through. In the old times the beerpubs mixed this extremely dark beer with a pale beer type. We are brewing this beer type and don´t have to mix it at the bar. The dominating malt aroma remains, but the run off is significantly slimmer than the dark beer. Because of the special heating technology of our brewhouse, the intense caramel content of be malt does not overheat and therefore does not give the beer the caramel bitterness like at conventional brewhouses. In the cold season this beer is especially very popular.

On tap into a dimpled beer mug

A - Beer is poured a bit cloudy but can still see through it so that there seems to be moderate carbonation rising at a moderate pace towards the top of the beer. Head is off white in color and frothy, about 1 finger high. Head is retained for a while and then dissipates to a rockiness that is retained throughout the tasting. Beer itself is brown in color with a little bit of amber to it. 4/5

S - Toasted dark bread dominates the aroma. As a bit of an undertone there appears to be grassy hops as well as a bit of a caramel sweetness. Not a heavy aroma beer at all but the aroma is pleasant and clean. 3.75/5

T - The taste follows the notes of the aroma very closely. Toasted dark bread really comes out along with a caramel sweetness and smokiness that act as an undertone to the breadiness. Hops come in during the second half of the tasting with a slight grassiness but also seeming to be of the Noble variety as well. Very clean tasting beer. Slight yeastiness. A bit buttery as well which is unexpected. 3.75/5

M - Very clean feeling beer that is medium bodied in nature and finishes with a slight dryness but this does not linger on the palate. Slight carbonation burn. Comes across as rather crisp. 4/5

O - Interesting take on a Black & Tan considering that most Black & Tans are two separate beers that are poured together just before coming to the table whereas this is actually brewed together. Great beer to pair with a game stew (which is what I had to eat with it). 3.75/5

Sampled at the brewpub, this is their fall seasonal for 2006. The name means "mixed," but it is not mixed at the bar, but rather brewed as a mix of pale and dark. It comes out a cloudy dark amber under a 1.5 finger beige head with goor creamy body and a few lace strings. The nose is very mild, with just a hint of caramel. The mouth is light and very prickly. Mild all around, but all elements are here: caramel sweet, roasted nut, floral hops that leave a slightly dry bitter in the aftertaste. While I want more of all of the above, it is a good drinkable brew with wide appeal. Certainly solid.
