3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The first lager I’ve had in like...a year. Here we go...
A: Smells just like a smoked sausage. Amazing aroma. Smooth and balanced.
A: Looks like a lager... light on bubbles. Crystal clear. Amber color.
T: While there isn’t anything bad about this, there isn’t anything great either. Well balanced with the smoke but drinks much like a soda water. For the style though, this is very nice.
P: Sits fine but its like water.
Overall for the style this is a pretty solid beer. It brings something unique to a lager and is overall smooth. But, being a lager it’s very light and there just aren’t the other flavors there that would make it something great (like the marzen version... that was great). If you’re new to beer check this out for sure. If you like ales... go for one of the other versions.

Dobiven na dar iz Njemačke. Kao i svaki rauchbier ima aromu i okus dimljenog mesa. Izrazito je izražena u ovoj pivi. Za nas koji nemamo previše doticaja sa ovakvim tipom piva treba se prvo naviknuti na ovo. Izvrsno je.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un fantico esempio di birra della Franconia.
Al naso colpiscono subito le note affumicate di speck e fumo di legna verde.
In bocca l’aroma si sviluppa con un deciso e lungo retrolfatto di crosta di pane ed un pizzico di arancia sanguinella.
Nel bicchiere si presenta di colo oro antico con un fantastica meringa di schiuma bianca.
L’equilibrio č fenomenale per tutta la bevuta pur rimanendo sempre tendente verso il dolce.
In bocca il corpo č esile, la carbonatazione vivace e la birra scivola in bocca con una estrema piacevolezza.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Akkurat. Clear copper liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of smoke, charcuteries, bonfire, light floral hops and grain. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, smoke, bacon and light caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Hugely drinkable. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Getränkenfeinkost.
I had this straight from the bottle so the appearance is set at a median 3.
Aroma is smoky, woody and grassy.
Taste is smoky, woody, light malty, spicy and peppery.
Medium body, high soft carbonation, soft and smooth mouth feel, yet dry.
Smoky, herbal bitter aftertaste with slight yeast notes.
Hands down one of the best smoked beers I’ve had. Not as sweet as many can be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Copper color with tan head. Aroma is smokey ham and light sweetness, good balance. Taste is light smoke, light sweetness, but the beer behind it comes through as well. Refreshing and rather light and well-balanced Rauchbier. Good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour is amber and clear. Foam is okay, disappears again fast but sticks to the side of the glass.. Aroma sweet and smokey with some wood. Not too heavy. Fizzy in mouth, primary in the front of the tongue, but the general mouth feel is good. Smokey notes and tobacco, but also caramel, sweet dried fruits like raisin, and a hint of toffee and vanilla. Recommended as and introduction to rauchbier :-)
