On tap at Map Room. Pours bright and slightly cloudy. Flavor is smoky but it’s not salty and sausagey like a rauchbier. It’s flavor reminded me of a fresh hardwood campfire. It stung a little bit but it was good. Interesting beer.

On tap at The Dirty Truth in Northampton. An easy drinking brew with a dominant smokiness to it. I actually like this one more than their smokier marzen which is too smoky. It definitely went well with the cheese and pate I had with it tonight.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 50 cl.
Light amber to yellow, whit a medium white head. Lightly malty, with bread, grain and some hoppy grass aroma. Medium sweet, a touch of umami, medium lasting and rather light on the bitter. This is a true volume beer. This I can imagine drinking a lot of on a nice cool summers eve.

Might be advisable with more than one bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Style conquest into Germany! Bottle. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is toast, fruit, "lager." Taste: holy crap, it’s smoky! Didn’t catch this in the nose. Crisp, refreshing, light body, average carbonation, lightly sweet, short finish. Overall: unexpected; love how light and crisp this is. I need to drink more of these sub 5% classics.

This was a surprise...I picked up some non Rauchbier bottles here in Germany from this legendary producer. I was expecting a typical Lager, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the "rauch" is here. A nice flavor is produced with the smoke and Helles lager. Not too heavy and a really refreshing drink...especially during the winter. Love to find unique brews like this in Germany!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - the aroma is caramel, cereal, and slight grilling smoke
Appearance - appearance is pale, with a clear liquid that has some jetting nucleated bubbles, the head is frothy with full bubbles the head eventually calms down and hangs on a layer of foam. Stockings down the glass! Meow!
Taste - the flavor is really enjoyable it’s with a light sweetness of subtle malts, super muted hops, and a great shadow of grilled ham-like smokiness.
Palate - the body is light, the texture somewhat creamy, carbonation is average, finish moderate with the unique smoke
Further proof that this brewery believes in a think called smoke, and I love them for it. Love there use of smoke. Could drink this beer all day long. Probably would perfect for cooking as well.
