3.46/5 rDev -10.6%
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.

355ml bottle served in a mug.
A: Pours a dark amber to brown clear color (nutty color) forming a medium yellow aired head which dissipates quickly. Only few lacings left
S: Smoked malts. Toffee, caramel, caramel malts. Bacon. Bready yeasts. Light notes of flowery hops
T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Notes of toffee, caramel, caramel malts, roasted malts, bacon. Quite biscuity. Good and moderate bitterness which is a mix of roasted and smoked malts and hops
M: Medium body. A little bit molasses. Good carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild roasted bitter aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Great Rauchbier made in Brazil

3.53/5 rDev -8.8%
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.
