This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

One of my new favorite styles and highly anticipated as Unita is on my radar lately.

An almost room filling aroma of smoke and peat emanates from this hazy, yellow-orange brew. A towering, light tan head crumbles slowly and leaves a smattering of craggy lace behind. A closer sniff reveals some light fruits and caramel. Tastes fruit forward with some malt sweetness followed by a quick slap of smoke and damp wood that fades way too quickly. Some orange peel and faint spice is noticed. Lighter in body and crisp at the end with a lingering, subtle alcohol heat.

A bit more "rowsh" in this beer and we have a world class smoker, but I can say I'm not going to have any problem finishing off this 750.

huge fluffy fizzy head takes up half the pour, tons of streaming bubbles, slow fading head, lots if lacing, mostly clear golden orange color.

Nose nice smoked meat, smoked malts, mild campfire big smoke aroma but not beat you with it, little sweet malt base, mild crisp lager like and fruity note.

Taste fair sweetness, candy like, with big smoke again, smoked cheese, little campfire mild smoldering log, smooth creamy, mild lager feel, soft, mild earthy grassy spicy hop in the background, with fair bitterness, little sticky finish but dry and mild crisp, long mild Smokey finish little bitter hop.

Mouth is med bod, mild creamy, decent but lighter carb.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off whit head that died down but consistenty left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of iodine from the smoked malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer might not be for everyone's palate, but if you can handle the iodine-like flavors it is pretty good and would pair well with smoked meats.

This has a beautiful smokiness to it, but a distinct pilsner flavor. Clearish brown in color, it's carbonated with a sweet aftertaste to mix with the burnt wood and pils.
