On tap, 10 ounce sample at Maduro's in Madison WI, served in an Aecht Schlenkerla glass. This beer has a hazy brown color topped with a small head. As the beer was set in front of me, I immediately smelled smoked malt, fruit, and a hoppy aroma that I didn't expect from this beer. The hoppiness worked quite well, however. The flavor is a meaty smokiness with caramel, fruit, and hops. Malty, but not too sweet. The fruitiness and hoppiness made this beer quite different from the other beers made by this brewery. Mouthfeel is not too heavy. Drinkability is superb. My glass was finished much too quickly. This is mighty tasty stuff.

Served in .5l willibecker at Track 84. Pours a deep mahogany with a dense, quarter inch, off-white head. Nose is smokey with some caramel notes - definitely a smoked meat quality, but not as apparent as in some of the other Schlenkerla beers that I've had. Taste expresses smoked pork, some earthy char at the back and some caramel which is a bit more toasty than sweet in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with a crisp carbonation and a touch of dryness at the finish. Overall, a bit more subdued than the Marzen and drinks easier, somewhat akin to a smokey brown ale; however, I have to say that if I'm going for a Rauchbier, I'd have to go with the Marzen.

Tap: Poured a clear light maple color ale with a small foamy head with average retention. Aroma consists of smoked malt with light woody notes and floral undertones. Taste is dominated by easy drinking notes of smoked malt with light wood notes and floral undertones. Body is full with somewhat of a fat mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Great mix between complexity and drinkability.
