COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only available at the brewery in Chico, our rauch beer (smoked beer) is a chestnut colored, medium bodied, dry lager. The slight hint of smoke flavor comes in from the use of a small amount of imported smoked barley malt. Perle hops for bittering and Liberty hops for aroma finish this very unique beer offering.

Not my favorite SN brew. Had this at the SN Restaurant with a burger the other day. Pour was dark caramel with very minimal head but decent lacing. Lacked body as it had a watery mouthfeel and could have used some more carbonation. Smokey aroma and taste which was "different" but good. Worth a try to say the least, but there are other SN’s better.

Blind Tiger Big Beer Festival 2003. Clear brown colour, smokey aroma. Smokey, nutty choc-malt flavours though it felt a little too thin to hold the considerable smoke presence, probably 'cause it was served too cold.

Very good. The smoke is definitly noticeable in the flavor. It has a chesnut flavor that rests on the palate outstanding.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 An interesting beer to say the least. A dark amber colored lager with a hint of malt and hops in the aroma. The taste is somewhat dry with a hint of smoke. Worth the trip to Chico.
