Collaboration with Browar Kingpin

A combination of East German and neighboring Western Polish traditions, Grätzhainer hybridizes the former’s Lichtenhainer with the latter’s Grätzer/Grodziskie. The resultant collab with Poland’s Kingpin—a straight 50/50 blend of the two styles– features a pleasant, easy-drinking sourness typical of the Lichtenhainer, with the complex smokiness indigenous to the old Grodziske. The perfect beer with which to reminisce about the good ol’ days when the Wall was still up, everyone had a job, and good beer was cheap!

On-tap at Albion, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color—a little too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with just a thin collar of white bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having stronger flavors of smoke and associated notes of iodine along with a light amount of sourness and slight hints of saltiness. Notes of the smoked malts linger into the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With the iodine and band-aid like flavors, this won't be everyone's cup of tea but if you like smoky beers it's and interesting mix of a smoked beer and a sour that is rather light in body and easy to drink.

Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is smokey and lemony. Taste follows, lemony but not really tart, smokey, not really malty. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but it doesn't have anything to jump forward at you.
