St Elmo Brewing Maturon Smoked Lager

What the brewers say

“Where clean meets weird. Smoked Texas malt, juniper, lager yeast.”

What our panel thought

“Juniper dominates the aroma with light biscuit and crust. Low savory smoky notes. A hint of savory umami. Subtle pine-resin juniper flavor, not overbearing, takes the role of hops to cut the simple malt backbone.”

What our editors thought

“Unexpected berry note on the nose, backed by light smoke. Sip is restrained; very light smoke never overwhelms the gentle aromatic components. Lingering herbal spices appear in the finish.”
