3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a walnut brown color, with a decent, froth, slightly bubbly head.
Salt coated, bready malts, which got a honeyed peak to them. While the beer warms up, a gentle smoked note settles on top of the maltiness, adding up very well with the salts.
Starts with salty, earthy malts and a good amount of smoked ham, while malts tend to turn sweeter, while drinking. Lively carbonation supports big waves of smoke, while only a whiff of salt shines through. Finishes with a short dry glance, then sweeter, toffeeish malts go well along with the smokiness.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear bronze. Film of white head. Smoky rubber. Very savoury. Taste is light sweet. Some dry. Body seems thin, given the imparted smokiness. Finishes with a little sweetness. Not chewy enough.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
