Her en ægte "Rauchbier" eller "Røg øl", som denne øltype er bedre kendt under i Danmark. Øllet har en flot ravgylden farve, der understøttes af en delikat røget karakter. Den røgede karakter er et specielt islæt, som kun kan opnås ved at bruge speciel udvalgt malt tørret op på røgen fra egenede træsorter - i dette tilfælde langtidslagret ege- og bøgetræ. Udover røgmalten har vi brugt hvede- og Münchener malt, hvilket giver ekstra fylde og karakter til denne herlige øl. Amerikanske humletyper som Horizon og Liberty sørger for at denne øl bliver helt sin egen med en moderat bitterhed og en let krydret humlearoma.

kappldav123 (5542) - GERMANY - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass brownish, small head. Starts mild, dry malty, rusty and metallically. Dry hoppy background. Finish boring malty, still quite dry. Okay.

TorbenJensen (1334) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2015
Real persistent foam, a sparse aroma where little malt with no hint of smoke revealed. The taste is malty with light pleasant notes of flower and oak. It tastes really quite good, but you have to look very deeply in the aftertaste to find a little smoke flavor. There is admittedly a little smoke at the bottom of the taste, but certainly far from what I would call smoked beer. It’s actually the first time that Skovlyst disappoints me a little, because it is a tasty beer that I think would be a lot better with a greater fullness and depth of just smoke.

20.07.2015. 0,5l Bottle. Netto, Kolding. Golden yellow colour with white head. Smoked? Moderate bitter beer with pretty weak flavours of malt. No notes of smoked malts. Moderate bitterness. Not for me this one.

BeerViking (3379) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, best before 2010 so I think it’s the original version - thanks Martin! Pours hazy brown with a few black lumps and a honeyed, faintly smoky and musty nose. Sweetish and malty, with a dry-sweet edge, light smokiness and a peppery hoppy note.

Copenhagen 10/8 2014. 50 cl bottle from DøgnNetto. Pours dark yellow with substantial white head which slowly evaporates. A bit of the announced "smoke" in the aroma but not anything distinctive. Prickly mouthfeel. A bit too sweet for my taste. Not offensive - and not particulary engrossing.

flemmingwillum (1106) - Nysted, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2014
Rating #1035, flaske fra Netto i Nysted

Mørk ravfarvet øl med luftigt skum. Duften er pilsneragtig og maltet. Smagen har en del karamel og er relativt sød, og ender i en let bitter afslutning med ret tydelig røgsmag, som dog aldrig bliver dominerende. Overraskende blød øl der er meget behagelig i munden. Ikke en øl der får mig til at falde ned af stolen af ren begejstring, men den kan sagtens nydes til aftensmaden eller fungere som velsmagende tørstslukker.

DroolYeast (523) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2014
Bottled @ home. But it is 5,2 % ABV and called a "Golden classic". I scanned the barcode - still redirects to this beer. Aroma of caramel malts. Clear brown colour with small white head, vir. no head lasting. Light bitterness, light sweetness, some hops. Not much. Light+ body, watery tecture, average carbonation, little bitter finish.

Now there is a lot of confusion as this is possibly the 4th variety of this beer being rated under the same entry! The first version was a draft beer brewed after 2004 at the premises in Hareskoven, Denmark. It is still made and is INDEED a proper "rauchbier" - the smoke is very prominent in this one. Then I believed they made a bottled version of more or less the same beer, again brewed at the premises in Denmark. If made at all it was made in small number. Some of the reviews from 2007 may cover this beer. In 2008 production was moved to a Polish brewery which produced quite high numbers of a bottled beer which was one of my all time favorites. It wasn’t at all a "rauchbier" but it was special none the less. Oak was quite prominent giving it a slightly sour taste combined with caramel. You can read this in a lot of the 2008-2010 reviews. So the commercial deScription match the original draft version and/or possibly the danish bottled variety. The picture however match the first polish produced bottled beer (I still have one of these bottles myself). Then in May 2013 they started production of a new variety. The label is different as is the bottle and the content - only the name remains. This beer is now described by the brewery as a "amber lager" - no mention of smoke at all. And it is a disappointment - I may just as well have bought a Turborg Classic. This is no more specialty beer - it is a mainstream lager only still with a little hint of oak which comes from artificial oak flavor.
