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.

From a corked 750 mL bottle, bottled on 12/17/13 with no ABV. Pours a light copper color with a thick creamy head that quickly falls and leaves heavy lacing.

Smells of light smoke, smoked hams and meats, no hop aroma whatsoever.

Taste is a solid malt backbone with some sweetness followed by smoked meats and smoked cheese, ends with a lingering bitterness that could be from the smoked malt or some late hops? Sweetness and smoke is well balanced.

Mouthfeel is thick and malty with with moderate carbonation, there is definitely some alcohol here but not overly stong or burning.

Overall, a good Rauchbier, I've only had a couple others to compare to but this can hold its own to Schlenkerla IMO. This would definitely go well with some barbecue or smoked meat/fish.
