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.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Bottled. 10cl sample. Thanks Menno for the share. The aroma has smoked meat, toffee, slight grass. Clear, amber coloured beer with an off-white, medium head. The taste is light bitter, sweet, has toffee, some caramel and smoke mainly. Body is a little watery. Easy drinking smoked beer.

Bottle shared by Menno, thanks! Quite some clean wood in the aroma, smokey, but quite different than the Bamberg smoked beers. Really well balanced and clean.

Bottle. Geologyguy nails it in his review, "Smoked smell that is great! A good smoked beer, not quite as good as my favorite one...needs to be heavier and less watery, touch too much hops too".

MrHangover (2660) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is very smokey, bbq, roasted malts. Flavor is has a massive woody presence over everything else. The smoke is also massive in this one. Very powerful, yet a very light and short aftertaste. Still a very nice one.

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Rusty orange color, small off-white to beige head. Aroma has a lot of smoke and smoky bacon. Taste malts, smoke, sweetish. Tastes better than it smells. Not my thing.
