My first Rauchbier, the only other smokey beer I have had was Alaskan Smoked Porter. Poured into a thick walled beer mug, this beer has a clear mahogany color, looking ruby red against a light. Medium size off white head with average retention. Some spotty lacing. Pronounced, strong smoky aroma!!!! Like smoked salmon or smoked cheese. Very nice.
Taste is good as well, Big strong smokey taste backed up by solid sweet malt. THis is just right
Mouthfeel is light and sharp...This is a lager.
Drinkability is good, this is a sipping beer. The smokiness is just right, flavor is solid and it is light enough to make you want more.
This one is a winner

500ml bottle poured into tulip 20/7/14
A looks fairly dark until held to the light, has a clear maroon glow, big short lived tan foam leaves lots of random lace
S its smokey no doubt, smells like campfire clothing, smoked meat, faint coco and hard toffee, earthy notes, salty brine, smells like it should
T less smoke then the nose but that still leaves plenty, more chocolate, earthy notes are strong, similar to the nose but not quite the same levels of smoke
M lighter side of medium, stops just short of foam, intense smokey aftertaste just keeps going
O it is what it claims, lots of smoke, super easy to drink, I'm wishing I had some BBQ to eat with this
I bought this one to make some sauce the ribs I'm making and I think I'll need to grab another bottle to eat with them.
