The Kaiserdom Gaststätte & Hotel (open Tuesday-Saturday 7:00am-2:00pm and 5:00pm-11:00pm, Sunday at 11:30am) is at Gaustadter Hauptstraße 26, but I wasn't able to visit it during my 2003 trip.

      Score: 20 points
      Overall Impression (3)
      Amber-brown, moderate carbonation, thick head. Pleasant - REAL - smoke aroma. Nice body, a little sweet. Smoke is subtle at first, and grows a bit, but is never overpowering. Rather than dominating the flavors, the smoke is a nice complement to the beer.
