Notes/Commercial Description:
Tinder is a German-style Rauchbier (Smoked Beer) that kindles moderate malty sweetness and robust smokiness. Brewed with Bamberg beechwood-smoked malt, this medium-bodied lager ignites distinct campfire smoke flavors and aroma.

Aromatic, bright and balanced, Tinder is bottle conditioned and has an ABV of 6.5%. Scheduled to hit select shelves in late January, Tinder is a limited release beer, only 180bbls were brewed.

At Bukowski's Inman Squrare

Murky dark cantaloupe color with a thin skim head. Smells like campfire and fruit. Tastes about the same. Doesn't tastes or smell nearly smokey enough. I want to choke on smoke. This is more like a sweatshirt that I wore around the campfire 3 days ago. And that amount of fruit is just sloppy.

Hazed dark amber in the wine glass with a decent head. Pleasantly spritzy in the mouth. Huge smokehouse, smoked meat aroma. Medium body with an oily texture.

This really does taste exactly like bacon. Sweet and apple, malty, and relentlessly smoky. I tried it with food and without, and didn't like it much either way. It's a nice smoke flavor, it's just so non-beery and over the top. A slight bitterness emerges in the aftertaste.

I guess this is drinkable, after splitting the bottle, but it's more of a fascination with how weird this stuff is. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the state liquor store in Salt Lake City.
