I’ve been on a rauchbier kick lately, as I’ve made note of in previous reviews. Dunno what sparked it but anytime I see a smoked beer I have a burning desire to try it out. But enough lame puns! On to the beer!
This pours a nice, smoky auburn. A shade lighter than the bottle it came in, a tinge of ruddy reddish-brown. There’s a muted whiff of smoke on the nose, very subtle. Not anywhere as dominant or overpowering as some of the other, bolder smoked beers I’ve tried. But don’t be fooled, on the first sip you’ll definitely catch the smoked presence. This one finishes dry—and sharp. Very enjoyable. Pleasing. Even as it warms. I’d buy a sixer of this, especially for the price that SA beers go for. Overall another solid brew from these guys. I’d love to see Sam Adams introduce the masses to rauchbiers by promoting this guy.
