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.

Poured out of a bottle into a tulip glass. Lots of bubbles, almost transparent, rust-red color. No head. Smell: Smoky, smoke smoke. Smells like right after I get the BBQ going but before I throw any meat on the grill. I also get a green olive scent at the beginning. Taste: Smoke. Burnt wood. Sweet malt at the end. No bitterness at all. I think the smoke mellows out the intense malt sweetness that usually accompanies a bock. Very crisp, it is a lager after all. A good beer. There are not too many smoked beers made, so for that reason alone I tried it. Well worth it, though it was not my favorite smoked beer.

mjg74 (2852) - 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.

stevoj (2952) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2015
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.

MaBeer1972 (1469) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2015
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.
