Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle at the Gasthaus. Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), with notes of smoked meat and campfire. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A nice, easy-going, light-bodied smoky brew...not terribly satisfying to drink due to the light-and-watery body, but decently balanced and clean. Very strange that a brewery in the Franconian countryside makes two smoked beers...but cool to get stuff like this outside Bamberg.

Nice aroma of smoked meat. Not really impressive malty taste, with a very short smoky-watery aftertaste. Drinkable, okay.

Jambon poivré et fumé avec une bonne touche de houblons terreux. Pas aussi facile à boire que certaines rauchbier.

A fine Rauch! Intense smoke aroma. The color is more bock-like than black(Schlenkerla for example). The taste is smokey ham, delicate caramel and nice bitterness at the end. Although it was like half a year before expiration date beer almost gushed out of bottle. Light bodied, medium drinkablility. No match for Schlenkerla but still quite good.

Nice smoky/wood taste, with decent malt body. Good drinkability, and low content means I can drink a lot more of it.

Gravity pour at the keller. Aroma is ham, smoke, herbs and coniferous. Very aromatic. Chewy malts, pine and earthy. A little heavier than the lagerbier. Very good.

Chopper925 (252) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Nice amber brown color, small white head. Peaty nose. Sweet, light sour and light bitter taste. Flat carbonation, but not unfitting. Aftertaste is more sweet malt with a enjoyable smoke note, which doesn´t stay too long. Very good drinkable, I would rather call it a light Rauchbier.
