COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caldera’s Rauch Ur Bock is a German-style lager billowing with intense cherry and beachwood smoke flavors. We used two different smoked grains in this lager, one cured with cherrywood and the other cured with beachwood. Warning, this beer has an intense smoked flavor.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Bomber from Capital Market. Hazy deep maroon in color. Nose is BBQ and dark fruit. Some sea water as well. Smoke up front in the flavor. The dark fruit and sweetness from the bock still come through. Smoke throughout, but still has the taste of a pretty good bock. Really well balanced flavors. Nothing is overpowering, just tasty.

Bottle from co-op. Underpriced and undervalued. Perfect example of the German rauch style. Sweet, smokey aroma, more smoke in the taste. Malt, bacon, maple syrup, taste is initially sweet, followed by cured meat. Pretty solid throughout.

Bomber from Oliver’s in Albany. Pours out a medium copper color. Intense, complex aromas of smoke and malts. Flavor has a good malty backbone that is well balanced with layers of differing smoke. Smooth and very drinkable, with an Americanized twist on a German Classic.
