Light copper colour with good clarity and a thick, bubbly white head on top.

Malty smelling with a bit of spice blended through the middle and rounded off nicely with a touch of cinnamon and hints of smoke.

Caramel and a nice malt base to this one along good bit of spice and a nice cinnamon kick that the nose suggested. There is also a background smokiness to the beer.

Smooth, light to medium, mild bitter finish.

A fairly average tasting beer that was drinkable and had a good mix of malts and smoke.

I stayed at the Kraus brewpub 22-26SEP11 but, unfortunately, their restaurant was closed at that time. I was able to buy a bottle of this at the reception, though. I quaffed the 0.5l (€2.00) serving in my room on 25SEP11.

This rauch was a clear shade of copper, with a rocky, off-white, quickly-thinning head which left some OK lace. Had an aroma of light smoke and toastiness. Medium-bodies, the prickle level was low, making for a decent passage over the tongue.

A little caramel was in the mix before the rauchiness came into play. It was medium-strength, like a Spezial Rauch, not a killer cup of bacon. Some florality played a part in the dryish finish. Decent and drinkable, but not top-shelf. Prosit!!

Half litre bottle. Medium tanned head which went quickly. Mahogany colour, slightly cloudy. Strong smoked meat smell. Taste reminded me of the smokey bacon crisps I used to eat. Not as smooth as Schlenkerla but goes down ok. The locals say smoked beers only taste after the third one.
