Dorqui (2148) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Limpid and a little fraught red color, discreet bubbly presence and very good foamy and creamy head resistance. Poor malty aroma with a decided and remark smokey smell. Notes of booze and smoked resin and cortex, much wooden. Medium prickly taste, good alcoholic body with a mighty smooked notes, ash, and arid long final. Very agreeable beer.

Smells like smoke herring. Taste like my best fire camp souvenirs. Love it. Thanks to John Wright for the fresh smuggled beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NMC01 (70) - DENMARK - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at Brauerei Spezial: Very pleasent smokey Märzen. Very nice Märzen, light brownish and nice big foam. The smoke is well balanced and with a withheld fattiness in the smokiness. Lovely beer!

JK (5028) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2013
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.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
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.
