Poured into tasting glass. Amber with white head. Aroma is smoked pork. Taste is smoke, grass, hay. Lighter in smoke than the Germans but just as good paired with meat or smoked cheese. Finish is a lingering smokehouse or campfire.

Akward, weird tasting beer. Golden pale color. Smooth, white head. Campfire taste, comes as a strong after taste. Wasn’t a fan of this lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear light amber with a near white foamy head and minimal lacing. Aroma: smoke (of course), grass, crackers, caramel, cereal. Taste: smoky meat (bacon!) and honey granola, with golden grahams, grass, hay, and some light spice (almost like some rye in the malt bill?) crisp, with a lingering smoky, nutty malt. Finish: Really nice smoke beer. Base seems to be in the lager variety, marzen specifically, all for the better. Excellent effort.

Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours clear gold orange with medium fluffy white head. Big notes of campfire, bacon, and some oranges. Nice creamy mouthful. Tastes of hopped oranges, nice malt bill, touch of citrus hops at the finish. Nice medium bodied and creamy. Really pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle. Amber orange color. Small beige head. Rich toasted malt aroma with lot’s of smokiness. Huge smoky toasted malt flavor dominates the first sip. There is a nuttiness and complex sweet caramel malt character in the mid taste. Finish is light spicy hops. Very nicely balanced and right up there with the traditional rauchbiers of Bamburg. Outstanding.

Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, foamy white head that vanishes rather quickly. Aroma is smoked meats, bacon sizzling in a frying pan, smoked malt and some underlying sweetness that has hints of maple syrup. Taste is fried bacon with maple syrup on it, smoked processed meats, smoked malt, burnt wood and caramel. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more smoked malts, caramel, smoked meats and bacon with light maple syrup.
