Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Aroma of smoked bacon. A dark clear amber with a white ring and minimal lacing. The taste is smoky (but not over the top) hints of malts, leather, and wood. Crisp finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very rewarding Rauchbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1494) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is clear dark amber with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of smoked meat, sausages, wood, sweet malt and forest. The flavour has a lot of camp fire, wood, smoke and grilled sausages. A little ash in the aftertaste. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A nice rauchbier, it’s all about smoked meat in the forest.

markschiedon (416) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2014
Drinking blind from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma whisky, smoked eel, smoked sausage. No beer aroma. The clear orange beer has a small white head. In the taste smoke, sausage.Low carbonated. Although I like smoked beer, I don?t get around this sausage taste and smell. To bad.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Very classical Bamberg Rauchbier (along with Aecht Schenkerla) linked to a brewery, malt house and pub with roots dating back to 1536. Amber coloured with brownish hue, stable yellowish head; clearly smoked aroma of charcoal, smoked bacon and peat, but malt sweetness and some banana too, less ’attacking’ than the Aecht Schenkerla smoked beers; caramelly, clean malt taste, complex thanks to the subtle and elegant smokiness, not too dry, satisfying finish.

Alla spina. Aroma di cereala, miele e tocco affumicato più leggero rispetto alla Marzen. Sempre con un ottima bevibilità.

Franzen (429) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Leathery smoke aroma. Amber clear white head. Lots of leather and some smoke in the taste. Long lasting smokey finish. Fantastic smokiness with enough body in the background although being a lager.
