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.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

It pours in a dark brown color with a light white head.
It smells of a rauchbier, but has a lighter flavor. It has a great carbonation and has a lighter and easier to drink smokey flavor than Schlenkerla Rauchbier. It has bacon, breadiness, a good roasted malt, and wonderful smokiness.
This beer continues to prove how good Schlenkerla's smoke beer line up is. None of them have failed me and this is possibly their best.
