Served from tap in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House - Rolling Meadows.

Starting things off at a lovely new local-ish bar with a rauchbier I thought had passed me by long ago. It pours a clear topaz-sienna topped by a half-finger of dirty ash foam. The nose comprises hickory-smoked honey-glazed ham, caramel, light charcoal, and a hint of pear. The taste brings in more of the same, the ham character droned out a bit by some extra smoke and caramel. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a very nice rauchbier, nice and heavy on the smoke without overdoing it. I approve.
