A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a small patch of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light to moderate flavors of smoked malts with underlying hints of bready malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The smoked malts in this Munich Helles Lager are much more subtle compared to a Rauchbier so it isn't overpowering if you're not a fan of smoky beers. It also has an interesting name - I'm thinking it's a play on words as a "smoky" version of a Helles, just like the gritty neighborhood in Manhattan next to the fumes of traffic from the Lincoln Tunnel and Port Authority Bus Terminal.
