3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Spezial, Bamberg. Nice copper color. Light, opaque. Mild smoke aroma and flavor is fairly light too, but the smoke is prominent. The smoke quality is much less intense than in the Lagerbier, but it is still quite good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on draught at the brewpub in Bamberg. Pours deep orange almost brown with a small tan head. The nose is bbq pork rines, smoked turkey, bits of ash and burnt wood. The taste is sweet with a nice bitter balance. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light and the finish is long. I really like this one. It’s not as good as another Rauch from the same city that will go unnamed but this was close.
