German Rauchbier

Rauchbier is an old German beer style with origins in the 1500s from the district of Franconia and the town of Bamberg. Typically dark to amber in color, it shares similarities with Oktoberfestbier. Green malts are dried over an open fire of beechwood, imparting a unique smokiness ("rauch" is German for smoke) to the final beverage. Expect toasty-rich malt in aroma and flavor, restrained bitterness, low to high smoke flavor, clean fermentation profile, and an attenuated finish.

ABV: 4.8-6.0% | IBU: 20-30 | Glassware: Pint Glass (or Becker, Nonic, Tumbler)
