This smoked German Lager uses 60% Weyermann beechwood smoked malt. The addition of Munich malt provides a sweet malty balance to the beer

Tap room. Pours a light golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is nicely smokey, woody with notes of sweet doughiness and a bit of meaty character. Flavor is much the same, lots of the woody smokiness that sits over a sweet biscuit note finishing crisp and clean. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Excellent rauchbier

Pours clear golden/amber with a small white head. The aroma has peat smoke (not meaty), smooth caramel, bready malt, some cereal and a hint of spice. It has a medium/light body that is a bit rough with carbonation, but still has a smooth slickness to it. The flavor starts with the peat smoke, but it has a lot of sweet bready malt that offsets it nicely. The finish shows a bit of spicy hops and has a nice balance of malt, smoke and hops. This is one of the cleanest tasting smoked beers I’ve had.

Growler shared by a friend. Pours a crystal clear copper with an offwhite head. Nose is richly smoky, beechwood, light caramel sweetness noted and very clean. On tasting, light sweetness, bacon, smoke & a woody note. Low hoping. Clean, could use a bit more malt with less sweetness but a really nice classic rauch here.

On tap at the Schlafly Tap Room source. Pours a clear golden orange with a classic white head that stays around. Good stuff all the way. Nice smoky aroma with a taste of sweet caramel malt, bread dough and smokehouse goodness. Enjoyed with an order of their crispy ribs for a delicious smoke-on-smoke experience.

On tap at Schlafly Taproom. Pours a copper color with white head. Smoky, malty, firewood flavors. Pretty good rauchbier.

On draft. Aroma of smoked ham. Flavor of smoke that dissolves and gives way to a solid lager. No sweetness, just a nice, clean progression of flavors. No surprise that a St Louis brewery would have mastered a central European style, right?

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a clear, golden orange appearance with a white head. Smoky meaty, caramel, lightly fruity aroma. Toffee, smoked ham, light ashy, pear flavor. Pretty tasty.

On tap, it poured an amber color with a small white head. The aroma was very smokey, almost like bacon with some malty notes and woodsey aromas. The taste was smokey but very well balanced. The body was medium and the finish left behind a bacon flavor. Nicely done.

3-23-2014 Deep golden-orange color and almost zero head but nice lacing. Nose is very plain with not much strong smoke presence but does have an overall sweetness too it. Flavor starts out with a smooth cherry wood flavor, sweetness from the malt really balances the smooth smoke presence. Light fruity flavor with notes of apple and tart cherry. Body is modest with a light oily mouthfeel and low carbonation that accentuates this. Overall a well balanced but a bit on the sweet side. I love the beechwood smoke in this brew that lends a nice smooth smokiness.
