SA's Rauchbier, finally in bottles included in the Harvest Collection. I have to say that SA's Fall pack is ALWAYS my favorite, even over the Winter pack and god knows I love my Holiday and Old Fezzi. On the the review!
Pours a dark ruby with a 1/2" light tan head that simmers down into a fizzy light cap. Smell of the Caramel and Pale 2 row dominate the nose, along with a mild hop presence and a soft touch from the smoked peat malt.
Taste is phenominal. I think this is one of the better SA offerings, and should be put into 6... wait, no 12.... errrmmm, I mean 30pk cases! Sweet Caramel and pale malts up front with the bit of smoke riding on top, finished with a slight bitterness from a noble I would imagine. The mouthfeel is alot thicker than most Rauch's, but makes me feel warm and toasty even in this god damn 90*+ temp here in Georgia. A spot on hit for SA in the Rauchbier Cat.
Overall, I want MORE MORE MORE!!!! I really want a Imp version of this, cranked up to 7% and loaded with smoke! Do yourself a favor, if your reading this and you haven't tried it, go get it immediately! If you like smoked beers and foods, you'll be glad you did! Cheers!
