Das "Schmäußbrauen" wurde seit dem Dreißigjährigen Krieg zu festlichen Gelegenheiten ausschließlich Kronacher Bürgern als Privileg gewährt. Dieser guten Tradition fühlen wir uns gerne verpflichtet.

Ordentliches Bier, würzig, malzig, nicht zu komplex. Sehr süffig, aber auch nicht zu spektakulär.

3fourths (8341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Draft at the brewery in Kronach. Clear chestnut brown with a white head. Speck smoke character, lightly woody / ashy. Toasty / nutty malt, red apple skins, roasted and oily chestnuts. Munich and dark amber malt with milder Rauch malt. Nose is mostly clean with light mineral touches. Semi-sweet, rich in the mouth with mild smoke character that works well with the medium sweetness. Good savoriness and hints of saltiness. Clean and balanced and flavorful. Much more of a Rauch Maerzen than a Landbier.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein helles mahagonie farbenes Bier, das im Gegenlicht schön leuchtet. Der Geruch ist süßlich karamellmalzig und leicht röstig. Der Antrunk erfolgt dann schön röstmalzig und angenehm würzig, dezent karamellig im Hintergrund. Der Abgang ist würzig süßmalzig und wieder mit leichter Karamellnote. Für mich ist das hier ein Dunkles. Gut trinkbar, auch wenn’s stellenweise etwas zu lasch geraten ist, vor allem im Abgang.

(bottle) pours a clear deep amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of smoked ham, honey, herbal hops, chewy malts and light hints of earth. flavour is mostly the same, lots of mild smoke, with some mild lactic acid and a barnyardy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

oh6gdx (21326) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2011
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Copper colour with a mediumsized beigeish head. Aroma is sweet malts, some mild toasted notes as well as some smoked wet wood and nutty notes. Flavour is nutty, smoked wet wood, some herbs and mild caramelly notes. Mild notes of blood (metallicness) as well. A bit thin in the palate.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2010
Bottled. An amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as a touch of spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel - as well as light notes of smoke. I think it should be listed as a smoked.

Courtesy of bierkoning!
Deep clear copper brown color, good beige head. Toasted sugar, some malts, iron and grassy hops in the nose. Crisp carbonation, reasonably malty for 4.5% beer. Flavor has light smoked malts, metal and some grassy hoppyness. Sweetish notes in the aftertaste. Interesting and very Bavarian.
