Medium to dark brown body followed by a small creamy off white head. Some lacing. Rauchmalt aroma. Rich malty body which is very flavorful – spicy, caramel, with a bit of nut (and smoke).

Sample at the Smokehouse. The beer is a clear pale copper color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that has fair retention. Spotty lacing. Sweet malty aroma with a fair amount of hops. Medium-bodied with a solid caramel malt character that props up a moderate amount of hops. The finish is sweet caramel and malt at first with a lingering hoppiness left behind. Pretty good.

On tap at the smokehouse - Pours a dark amber almost copper with a nice white creamy head. Aromas of big caramel, and toffee, munich malts show through most. Behind that there is a touch of spice from the authentic german hops. Flavor is all malt. Good caramel and toffee notes. Lots of sweetness and just a touch of spicey german hops at the back. Good and very true to the style
