Bamberg’s speciality, a dark, bottom fermented smokebeer, brewed with Original Schlenkerla Smokemalt from the Schlenkerla maltings and tapped according to old tradition directly from the gravity-fed oakwood cask in the historical brewery tavern.

Gravity keg at Akkurat. Dark brownish/amber with a medium slighty tan head. Nice aroma of smoke, ham, salt and wood. Taste of smoke, ham, wood and salt. The finish was bitter. Refreshing and really drinkable. A very nice beer.

NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen 50cl es de color prácticamente negro. - Espuma: Densa y de color beige - Boca: Fuerte. El toque a malta y caramelo queda en segundo plano cuando toma poder el ahumado, que es difícil de calificar como dulce o como amargo. Al final aparece un toque picante. ELABORADOR: Schlenkerla Rauchbier GRADO ALCOHÓLICO: 5 %

BillWyce (781) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Poured clear nut-brown with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of wood smoke, with perhaps a touch of caramel underneath. Body is medium, but a touch watery. Lightly dry finish. Flavor of nutty malt with a touch of bright citrus at the back. The smoke is present throughout, but really shows at the back and lingers pleasantly in the finish. A touch of a metallic note at the back as well.

villevav (264) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Tuoksussa savustettua kalaa ja makeaa maltaisuutta. Maku alkaa savuisen maltaisena ja päättyy savustetun kalan makuun. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen. Miellyttävän alhainen alkoholipitoisuus täyteläisyyteen nähden.

Father of Rauchbier. Clear dark brown color with a creamy head but very unstable. Nose full of smoked aromas like ham and wood. Märzen fresh aromas. Nice caramel and bready taste. Medium/high carbonation and for me it’s too sweet and could be ballanced with more bitternes.

JaKeAFC (638) - ITALY - FEB 5, 2015
50 cl bottle. Black appearance, deep burgundy red in see-thru, clear, nice creamy beige head, looks like a stout. Smokey nose indeed. Aroma of burn malts, 5-cereals, wood, charcoal. Very smoked, with speck. I remember having tried this years ago and it was YUCK!! but now it’s not that huge smoke i remember, it’s pretty drinkable. Taste is flattish, propending on the bitter side. Body is strangely light to medium, and texture is thin. Finish is smoky, woody. Peculiar one.
