Made with barley malt cured by natural beechwood smoke right in the brewery, in the old tradition of Bamberg.

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2013
Sampled from bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Clear dark orange color, medium sized white to off - white head. Smell smoke and bacon. Taste lightly malts, lightly smoke and lightly bacon. Fortunately the flavor is a lot better than the aroma. Average body and carbonation.

Bottle @ home. Clear amber to orange colour with a medium sized off-white head. Smells bacon, smoked, salty. Tastes some bacon, slightly smoked, wood.. Not too much smoked tastes.. Quite a decent rauchbeer for me. Thin to medium body with nice soft carbo.

Bernstein golden color. Light head. Light smoke aroma which is stronger when drinking. Sweet in the beginning, bitter in the middle. Interesting smoke and wood aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pyrmir (3418) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2013
On tap. Slightly hazy brown with thin white head. Aroma of malt, wood and a lot of smoke. Taste is malty, faint grainy and some meats with lots of smoke, yet still not too much. I like

erickok (3695) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 7, 2013
Very clear copper body and small yet stable light beige head. Strong smoke aroma, sausage and roasted almonds. Clear base yeast. Taste isn’t as smoked as the aroma, but still carries the woody dryness and meaty appeal, while the body is actually thin. Tasty, soft carbonation, never gets tired. Nice, easy brew. (50cl bottle from Wasana’s Getränken Oase)

0.5l bottle. Amber body, white head. Aroma of light smoke, caramel and bread. Taste of bread, smoke, caramel and some floral hops. Easy drinking, nice beer.

Bottle from Jared, nice light hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of corn, malt and a bunch of smoke. Taste is grain and a bunch of smoke, light meat flavor. Really digging this beer, smoke completely takes over which I love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
