Smoked beer

Lovely sweet, yeasty and malty aromas neat. It might be a mug of hot Ovaltine or indeed a stein of cool Rauchbier from Germany – take your pick. With it you will eat either a hot dog in a sweet poppy seed bun topped with yellow spicy mustard, chopped fried onions, and sweet pickle relish or a Pancetta-wrapped pork roll. With water, a salty and fishy dimension was added on the nose, seaweed, a timber groyne, salty bacon and sweet pickled herring. In the taste, burnt salted butter, sweet ‘n’ salted popcorn and we washed it all down with a Benedictine herbal liqueur.
