An aromatic amber lager with a slight hazy appearance. Caramel and smoke flavors come from the use of Beech wood smoked malt from Bamberg. You’ll enjoy savory flavors reminiscent of bacon.

Keg @ WF Charlottesville. Light golden amber color with a small white head. Smoked ham on the nose. Little else. A bit of burnt brown sugar. The taste is caramel-glazed ham. White bread. Crisp carbonation keeps it light and zippy. Not bad.

At GABF. Huge aroma of birch-ish smoke. Taste is of sweet, peppery bacon. Not as intense as Aecht Sch, but closer than any USA rauchbier. Yum.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2012
Serving: Draft. Pours a cloudy brown with a small, light tan head. The nose is lighter in the smoke than an Aecht marzen with a little meatiness to it. The flavor has some smoked meat, a little earth, and light malt notes. Finishes fairly clean, but not as crisp or as clean as I hoped. Good, not great.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Smoked malty aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has smokey and sweet malts with low bitterness, and some lighter toasted malty notes. Pretty good.

Drake (8502) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy red-amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of smoke, caramel malts and a fruity finish. The taste is assertive smoke, stone fruits, caramel and a bitter finish. Medium bodied.
