COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caution! This is an intensely smokey lager similar to those found in Bamberg, Germany. Most of this brew’s malt was dried over flaming beechwood, which ingrains unique smokey flavors. A large proportion of Munich malts were used to create a Fest style beer with amber hue. We used specially smoked barley from Valley Malt. Prost!

nice clear light amber/orange color. aroma is all the smokey beechwood. very noticable not much else detected. flavor is pretty smooth, some spices, carmal, maple, the sweet body mixed very well with the deep smokey taste with each sip. great beer, flavor wouldnt be as impressive alone without the smoked malts. plan on purchasing this one again soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RexTalionis (2437) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours darker copper in color with a whitish head. Grainy notes, bit of burnt wood and smoke, bread and sweetness in aroma. Nice. Smoke and hints of bitterness in taste at first, feels a bit like sitting at the campfire. Later on subtle sweet maltyness appears, but is gently overrun by the nice, quite soft smokyness. A good take on the Rauchbier style.
