We brewed this malty brown lager from eight diverse malts, including German beechwood smoked malt, English amber malt, and Wisconsin caramel malt. The result is a rich, smooth beer whose light smoky flavor enhances many foods.

Decent but the malt bill is too "clean" and modern. The beer seems too clear and sterile.

From Skyview. Aroma has oak with light smoke. Moderate smoke in the flavor, with a thin but appropriate malt body. Very dark brown, with a medium palate. A fine job from a small brewpub. Certainly recognizable as a smoked beer. I wish more small brewers would give this style a go.

Draft at the OF. Oh yes, finally a Rauchbier makes it’s way to the Fash. Filtered looking, deep amber brown, approaching a Portery color. Certainly reminiscent of the greats like Schlenkerla. A great smoked beer, straight down the middle, perhaps with a little bonus chocolate malt.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a thick beige head that has some good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted and smoked multi-grain caramel malt, a touch of maple syrup, bacon, and floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with flavors of smoked caramel malt, some milk chocolate, maple, and a touch of toffee. Finish continues the smoked malt aftertaste with a semi-sweet malt character. A solid smoked beer with a good balance of flavor.

Growler from Skyview. Dark brown color with a medium head. Light smokey aroma. Lots more smoke in the flavor. Plenty of that good, Bamburg smoke. Dry grain finish.

I’ve had only a handful of experiences with rauchbiers. It was a nice brew from Ttown, however i expected a lot more coming through in its smokey character. Pours a dark copper colour with a medium sized white head. aroma is oaky, slightly smokey and nutty. Taste is rich, lighter then i imagined but pleasent adn creamy.

Pleasantly surprising,definetly pick up the beechwood in aroma,also some quality molassas/chocolate malting. Flavor is the same,smoke not the intensity of the German brews ,but surprisingly distinct, one of the best midwest smoked beers i have had

Guerde (1288) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2008
(growler from Skyview) Pours light brown with an off-white head. The aroma is composed of a lot of campfire wood, some chocolate, and lightly burnt microwave popcorn. The taste is very nice with a great balance of sweet and smoky flavors. Some chocolate, roasted malt, and of course smoke show up, but one doesn’t dominate over the other. This was a pretty good beer, that would be quite sessionable.
