Stopped into the Goose today (11NOV15) for lunch with daughter Caitlin.... Had a couple of pints of this, at $5.50 per, with my chicken wrap....

Shaker pint was filled with a clear brew that was a deep shade of copper. Had minimal carbo, but the head was decent, a short layer of fine, off-white foam with solid lacing. Aroma was lovely, with a distinct smoky character, along with a bit of floral hopping. Body was a decent medium, and it passed with low-level prickle on the tongue.

Tasted of some toasty malt mixed with a bit of caramel at the outset. The smoked malt was spot-on, not being over the top at all. It was less smoky than Schlenkerla, but stronger than Spezial. The rauch level was about right where I really like it. The finish was dry, with more floral hopping mixed in. A nice brew! Prosit!

Clear copper with a thin white head. No lace but I still had a few wisps of retention left when my glass was done. Taplist says "The Rauchbier," like The Doors or The Rolling Stones.

Smells like campfire! Toasted malt underneath and a little butter make the nose akin to pretzel rods.

The smoke level is about right on in terms of being obvious but not dominating the rest of the beer. Messy, there's a lot of fruit and butter in here particularly in back. Toastier as it warms.

While a bit messy it's pleasantly smokey enough to curb the flaws and make for a quickly disappearing growler. A nice post hike beer.
