Notes / Commercial Description:
Smoke on the water! This Bamberg inspired smoked ale is bacon in a glass. Very polarizing beer, you either like the style and taste, or you never want to drink it again. Unique, brewed using German malts and Noble hops.

Tap at the festival.

Semi clear auburn color, light fizzy head.

Nose some smoke, soapy perfumy aromatics, light campfire, caramel, sweet malts, chewy malt like, charcoaly.

Taste Smoke galore, campfire smoke, hint of peat like smoke even, caramel and reddish malts, chewy, light earthy grassy hops, a bit of bitterness, little creamy even, and a heat from the smoke itself but fluffy. Finish is long smoke, bitterness, light astringent.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad but not great, I've had better and worse Rauchbiers. It brings plenty of smoke, but not much else I think.
