Smoke & Faithless Spreadsheet Ninja - Weird Beard

Smoke & Faithless Spreadsheet Ninja – Weird Beard

Smoke – 6% – Rauchbier – Bottle

Brewer’s Description

Our take of the quintessential smoked lager style from Bamburg using Beechwood Smoked Malt that gives the beer its distinct aroma and flavour.

Tasting Notes

Look – Straw to light golden with a slight haze and a white head. High carbonation.

Aroma – Smoke & something sweet.

Taste – Sweet bready and caramel, then savoury & very smokey. A bit like Frazzles. Umami

Feel – Good carbonation, full body, creamy.

Finish – Smokey, tingling, very light bitterness initially.


£2.56 for 33cl from Ales by Mail.

Faithless Spreadsheet Ninja – 5.5% – Schwarzbier  – Bottle

Brewer’s Description

A black lager style but inspired by Japanese drier versions, this is a chocolate-y, mildly malt-sweet beer that still finishes crisp and clean.  Hopped with Summit but kept traditional with Hersbrucker, this remains a hop-forward lager. Sorachi Ace adds complexity with coconut flavours and aroma to round it all off.

Tasting Notes

Look – Very dark brown, thick brown head.

Aroma – Coffee, treacle & aniseed.

Taste – Sweet then treacle and slight aniseed at the end.

Feel – Light body, crisp.

Finish – Dry & bitter.


£2.55 for 33cl from Hoptimism.
