Douberd (3457) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Swing top bottle, 500 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.5% Very dark orange copper, almost red colour on the body, with a tall and thick off white head. Good retention, medium lacing remains on the glass. Body is crystal clear with continuous slow activity in it. Aroma has just a touch of smoke, enough but not anything extreme. Aroma of malts is following, along with some spices. Taste is lighty smokey at first, followed by a malty sweetness and fruity flavours such as green apples. Medium thin body. Carbonation is soft, a bit low though. Overall a good beer for someone who wants to start with smoked beers as it’s not overwhelming.

fkoolen (638) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
Pours a reddish amber colour with a slim slightly off-white head. Nose and taste are light, almost IPA-like with red fruits and malts and a nuanced smokey aftertaste with some hoppy bitterness. Lively mouthfeel. Very drinkable for a rauchbier.

Benzai (11045) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2013
Bottle shared by Ansjelaah @ QDT 13. Clear amber color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, smoked malts, lightly bitter. Not bad imo, because it’s only lightly smoked even I can quite easily drink it. Low to medium body and carbonation.

Countbeer (5504) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized vast and thick and slowly changing creamy foamy head on top of a cloudy dark orange to amber colored beer but when some light comes through it turns into a more cloudy ruby colored beer. Aroma is pretty easy and gentle for a rauchbeer: some lightly smoked malts, some malty cream, lightly smoked herbs and a slight hint of bacon. Flavours of pilsmalts, smoked malts, some herbal flavours, some smooth bitters, light smokey tone and some honey. Easy, balanced and tasty! Aftertaste is lovely malty, bitter, light herbal and pilsmalts. Low carbo, soft creamy light oily texture, good and bit more than a medium body and a creamy light oily texture. Fine and balanced beer which I would sure like to drink again with some bacon alongside...
