Some more data about the beer:
Rye malt, Cascade hops
13,7 °P
Colour: 60 EBC
Bitterness: 30 EBU

Appearance: Hazy, brown, pours a fairly modest head.

Aroma: Smoky, but not too strongly, a distinct aroma of smoked food rather than anything else. Difficult to discern anything else.

Taste: Fairly mild, the smoke is not particulraly strong, but it’s certainly there. I was expecting more of the smoke flavour. Then again, the beer doesn’t have any other strong characteristics, so even the fairly mild smokyness is enough to overpower other aspects of the beer, such as the rye malt. The Cascade hops is what comes through next, but the malt is somehow in the background.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall: I’m not overly impressed with this beer. I do like the concept of a Rauchbier — a smoked beer — but I think the Germans may be better at this… Obviously, if you’re going to do a smoked beer, you better make sure that the other characteristics of the beer are such that they can take the smokiness, or you could go all out with the smoke in which case it doesn’t really matter. But this beer is somewhere in between. It tastes more like a pretty generic beer with a little bit of smoke.
