Amber red color with a two finger fluffy head with short retention.
Light predominant aroma of smoked malts and biscuit.
Flavor of smoked malts, red apples, caramel and a hint of pine. Dry aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation. Alcohol of 6.5% abv is well hidden.
A sessionable Rauchbier, maybe worth it as an entrance for beginners, but far from the usual smoked intense for the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy amber-brown, ok head.

Smell: Smoky meats, not too strong.

Taste: Moderate smoked meat flavor backed with bready malt base.

Drinkability: I could have a few of these since the smoke is not overpowering.

A single I picked up since I liked the weizenbock I tried from this brewery and smoked beers are interesting. This is a pretty decent smoked beer/rauch. Not overpowering in the smokiness, but gives a nice smoked sausage flavor. Worth a shot.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass

A: Very nice dark caramel color with ruby accents, but also a lot of visible sediment. I'd be more put off by that if the color wasn't as attractive as it is. Head disappears quickly, leaving a thin cream-colored ring around the brew.

S: First things first, the smokiness of this beer emerged as soon as I started pouring, which is a great sign for me and my terrible sense of smell. On closer inspection, I smell the expected smoke - like in your peatier single-malts - but also pungent hops. Smells almost like a smoked double IPA.

T: tastes like it smells, really - smoky at first, but then the bitterness kicks in...but then there's that peaty smoke again. The only thing I don't like is that the smoke makes the character of the hops hard to pick up, past the general bitterness.

M: good. Effervescent to start, and once the smoke comes out in the taste, it coats my tongue and top of my mouth very well.

D: it's rauchbier, so I'm not drinking one of these every day - or two in a sitting - but for all that it's pretty smooth going down. I think the conditioning aids the drinkability a lot: this beer's crisp enough to refresh the palate from sip to sip.

O: I bought this in a mix-a-six because my daughter liked the picture of the train on the label. Glad she did. I didn't pay attention to the cost of the bottle or of a six-pack, so I don't know if it was worth what I spent, but I think so. I think this is going to be the Thanksgiving-dinner six-pack this year.

The Eisenbahn Rauchbier was available a Figiera Restaurant in Sao Paulo. I tried this beer after the Pale Ale. The Rauch or smoke beer was ok. The appearance was a rich clear amber and a decent white head was present. The scent was somewhat smokey, but not dominate. The taste was decent, malt and grain present with tinges of roast/smoke. The mouthfeel was slightly downgraded because Alcohol was definitely present. Overall a decent beer and worth a try.

Thanks to my brother for sharing this beer. Always excited to try new smoke beers.

Batch 04.

The beer pours an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a lot of toffee malt with some smoke mixed in. The smoke is present, but far from overwhelming.

The flavor is very similar. The first and main flavor that I get is a meaty smoke, but there is also a strong caramel and toffee malt backbone. As the beer warms I start to get some dark fruit notes that mix very well with the other components. Very easy to drink.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Mine's called 'Defumada' Smoked Lager, with a depiction of an old train engine barreling through a tropical jungle. Oddly enough, it's also called 'Malt Liquor' on the label...

This beer pours a hazy, cloudy dark amber colour, with one finger of fast-disappearing soapy beige head, which leaves some very sparse lace in its wake. Its smells of light smoked wood, grainy malt, deli scraps, and mild grassy hops. The taste is smoked, woody grain, a bit of caramel, savory charred flesh, and floral, weedy, practically refreshing, hops. The carbonation is quite sedate, the body medium-heavy in weight, and smooth, in that campfire-tinged mountain air kind of way. It finishes with still a fair bit going on - caramel sweetness, latent meaty smoke, and light, ethereal, meadowy hops.

A nice, solid, surprisingly clean offering, with more of a tendency towards a visceral, subtle meatiness, than sinus (or palate) searing smoke.

Defumada!

An old favorite style since the great success of our homebrewed Mentholated Laser Jaw.

Clear, amber, low carbonation. Moderately smoky aroma, sweet malts. The smokiness lingers but isn't punishing. A refreshing and delightful experience. Stays sweet until the smoke begins to dominate towards the end.

An interesting mix of sweetness and smokiness. Definitely got smokier as the glass warmed, or, alternatively, as more smoked malt in liquid alcohol form was drank (a cumulative effect, as it were).

A nice beer, would surely try again.

Pours a clear, rust color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of smoke, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, and a hint of grain. Fits the style of rauchbier. Mouth feel is smooth and clean with an average carbonation level. Tastes of smoke, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight earthy malt, hint of grain, and a hint of hops. Overall, a lot better then the Dourada. Good mouth feel and blend.
