Notes & Commercial Description:

Caution! This is an intensely smokey lager similar to those found in Bamberg, Germany. Most of this brew's malt was dried over flaming beechwood, which ingrains unique smokey flavors. Aromas of campfires, smoked ham, and bacon dominate a soft malt and hop backbone. Although hard to believe, this beer is vegan friendly.

They are not kidding about the Ham taste. My god. Deeply unpleasant to my palate, but kudos to JA for trying new things.

Too smokey for me. I've had other rauchbiers and this was just over the top smokey. It overpowered the beer and made it seem like I was drinking a bottle of liquid smoke.
