COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a rauchbier brewed with german rauchmalt and peated malt only. It's fermented with lager yeast at ale temperatures - like a California Common.

Bottle shared by sliffy. Pours a hazy brown with a light tan head. The aroma held a good but of smoke but it seemed more controlled. It also seemed more controlled in the flavor and paired well with caramel pale malt, and a bit of yeast. Medium-light body with a smokey dry finish. Not too shabby.

Serving: Bottle shared by sliffy. Thanks Dan! This was my first taste of Mikeller beer...
Event: Columbus Wednesday night tasting.
Location: nolankowal’s place.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Beechwood smoked malt with some fruitiness.
Appearance: Pours a murky brown with an off-white crown.
Flavor: Beechwood smoked malt and some light caramel and generic fruitiness similar to that found in a bock or altbier. Dry, ashy finish. The smoke is resonates throughout, but it is very well controlled and actually seems to diminish somewhat over time. The alcohol (6.3% ABV) is not detectable.
Palate: Medium light and smooth. I would have liked a bit more weight or something in the body.
Overall: I love smoked beers and this one is quite tasty. It is well craft and well balanced. However, it isn’t quite as smoky or meaty as I would have liked...

I really dont know who shared this but thanks. Light smoke aroma of bacon, malty, smells like salted foods. Pretty good smoked with nothing overpowering. Body was a little thin but still had a pretty good palate. Cloudy brown with a white head.

Bottle. Dark brown. Smoke, chocolate, caramel and a hint of hops in the nose. Sweet with mild smokey flavour, malty and soft carbonation. Thinking of this as a smoked brown ale.

First off, I am a smoke beer fan. This is a very nice smoke beer with the appropriate smokey aroma. Rich beer with a smoked bacon taste without being greasy. Some dark bread and burnt toffee notes. Very enjoyable smoke.

Surprise of the Ohio gathering. A hoppy rauch from Denmark, thanks to the trading skills of JSquires. Dark mahogony and good bubbly head. Good lace. Nice deli smoke aroma. Very hoppy with bitter smokey finish. Lovely for the style.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Bottle thanks to jsquire for sharing: Murky brown pour with a nice tan head. Aroma, very smoky. Flavor, smoky as expected, but it’s got a nice malty backbone to it. The smoke is much more mellow than other smoked beers I’ve had. Very good stuff.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2006
Brown color; thick head. Delicate smoked aroma, with some cardboard, vanilla. Good malty body, some residual sugars, light liquorice. The final is somehow empty of emotions, but with an average bitterness. Some hidden hops. Gentle Smoked.

Pour is clearish brown with a thin off white head...smell is wonderfully sweet and nutty at first, with strong smoke coming on in the back...not really the traditional pork or BBQ smoke, but more of a nice campfire smoke...wonderful mouthfeel and not imbalanced like most other rauchs...wonderful...
