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.

DroolYeast (271) - 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.

KoNrRiI (483) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
0.5 bottle. Clear, dark amber color and a small, off-white head. Hoppy aroma of grass and leaves with delicate malts and yeasts. Taste is medium sweet, malty with some nuts but not very notable. Light to medium body, delicately creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is short and follows the taste to the letter. Overall the beer is simple and not smoked at all, but very drinkable.

From its name, one would expect a little more oakyness. It is slightly alcoholic, but indeed a drinkable but ordinary 'classic' ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ale taste, with good bitterness, but little diacetyl taste. Not so much foam.
