[on tap at brewery, "Bernstein Farbener Rauchbier">
Pils-like aroma: citrusy German, noble hops with some biscuity toffee. Hazy, orange-amber, with a lasting, dense, off-white cover. Smooth biscuity malt flavour with obvious noble hops that develops into a gentle rauch malt smokiness. Very gentle smoked ham with brown sugar. Medium body, medium carbonation, smokey caramely finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Smells of caramel and leather. Low sweetnes with aromas of smoked malts and a little caramel. Medium body. Medium to soft carbonation. Leathery finish with a hint of metals. Nice no-nonsense rauch.
