Ernest (7376) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cake, toasted grain/bread), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of smoked meat, frosting. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A little simple in the nose, but decent enough if a tad too sweet/cakey smelling. Kind of limp and overly sweet in the mouth, but drinkable. No off notes, but lacks the refinement and richness of better examples.

MetalNHopHead (1463) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Any time is a good time for a German smoked beer. Göller’s Rauchbier pours brown with a light brown/grey head. Beautiful Rauchbier smoke aromatics redolent of bacon. As good as the aroma is it doesn’t quite translate into the flavor. The taste is more bready than smokey. It’s still nice. Very smooth feel although it can seem a bit thin. It’s refreshing and that isn’t always something you can say about a Rauchbier.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is smoked ham, ham sandwich, dry smoked beef, dark breads. Taste is more subdued / composed / drinkable. Great aroma and easy drinking for a smoked beast.

Bottle. Pours clear tea amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with pronounced smoky notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with smoky notes and sweetish touches of malt and yeast. Mild hints of bread. Bitter and smoky aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

eaglefan538 (3032) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2016
American smoked ale pretty much. Bottle. Pour was copper brown and the head was thin to near nil. Aroma of smoke and caramel. Flavor followed, lacked complexity, but it was tasty and nice. Just not a great example of the style. Moderate body. Probably more sessionable than most rauchbiers.

milewide (2079) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Thin body and modest flavor. Aroma was decent. Clear brown color. Flip top bottle adds nothing but cost.

themightylazza (108) - - JAN 1, 2016
Dark brown rauchbier with a smoky bacon aroma, a malty caramel flavour with bacon undertone. The finish is rather light but this is a pleasant and tasty smoked beer.
