ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2006
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear brown with big, sticky white foam. Really fresh and interesting aroma of smoked ham, juniper, white bread, crackers and grassy hops. Flavour starts of smoke and juniperberries with smooth malty undertones of biscuit and wet grass. Well-balanced, smooth and quaffable. The aftertaste is tarry and crisp. Very nice!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at St. Albans Beer Festival 2006. I love Rauchbiers. Sadly this was a little bit of a let down. Rather metalic unfortunately. Vanilla and cheese aroma with just a faint hint of the smoke. Nice looking amber body with a slight but well behaved tan head. Just not enough smoke in the flavour. Slightly salty with a pleasant fresh hop note too. Creamy malt finish. Prickly palate.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2006
(bottle, bought at the brewery´s Ausgabestelle) Clear reddish amber colour with a frothy beige head turning into a small creamy layer. Slightly dusty beechwoody nose. Light bitter flavour, medium body, smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel with a soft carbonation. Initial earthy taste of dark malt with beechwood smoke, light notes of smoked meat; moderately bitter, nutty and smoky finish with the alcohol well hidden. Balanced and tasty brew.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 23, 2006
500 ml bottle graciously provided by Bamberg explorer MartinT and shared with him, Rastacouere and tiggmtl. Dark cherry-cola color, quite clear and lightly bubbly with a faint head....light sweet smokiness to the nose with a touch of vegetal character at first that thankfully dies off....nicely balanced sweet and acidic characteristics in the body, huge thick smoky malts, a touch syrupy which can work in this style for me, hints of toffee and cider....a bit on the light side overall but quite pleasant.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2006
Tap at the brewery. Amber, clear, nice head. Pleasently smokey, wood, vegetable oil, medium body. Refreshing and easy drinking smoked beer.
