I had this on-tap in a Pilsner glass at the Rock Bottom in Seattle.

Appearance: medium brown hue with no haze and a thick head of creamy tan foam. Very nice.

Smell: a great combination of smoky, sweet and fruity. Very good indeed.

Taste: smoky and fruity, with a definite banana character. A little bit sweet for my taste, but quite good nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. Entirely satisfying.

Overall: a bit sweet, but overall a very competent rauchbier. I dig it.

From a growler. Pours dark bronze, with a pure white head which fades while leaving a nice lace after each sip. Aroma is beechwood smoked with some sweet malt notes. Flavor tries to be a traditional rauch marzen, but is a little too roasty, and more importantly a bit cloyingly sweet. Still, this is a very nice beer. Tail is sweet and smoky, lingering quite a while. Smoke is up front, but restrained.
