HonusWagner (1872) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Quite smokey with what Iíd guess is a Helles base. Not overbearing amounts of meatiness, pretty drinkable for the style. Tasty but I probably wouldnít buy again because I had trouble finishing half a bottle.

corby112 (2704) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden orange color with apricot colored edges and a two finger, yellowish-beige head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention with a pillowy cap that takes a while to settle, leaving streaks of soapy lacing in itís path. Sweet, slightly smokey aroma with a nice charcoal/campfire character countered by sweet malt backbone. Decent smoke character but not too intense with hints of butane, ash and smoked meat countered by sweet caramel malt, toffee and biscuit. I would have preferred a little more smoke but itís not tame by any stretch if the imagination. Inviting nose on this beer thatís reminiscent of a lighter version of an authentic German rauch bier. Medium body with crisp carbonation and a strong smoked malt flavor thatís heavier than the aroma suggests. The beechwood smoke really stands out with hints of ash, charcoal, burnt malt, and barbecued bacon. This is countered by a sweet malt backbone and light bready yeast character. Caramel sweetness along with toffee, hazelnut, bread and subtle dark fruit esters. Very good imitation of a rauch bier flavor profile but slightly less intense. Similar to something from Schlenkerla but the smoke flavor isnít quite as rich or complex. Still, this beer is well balanced and easy to drink while packing a decent amount of smokey flavor.

Bottle thanks to Eugene. The night is over and all I have are the remnants, which means almost half a bottle of this -- apparently the world doesnít appreciate smoked beers. But Iíve got my x-files and Iím in the mood to tick, so bring it. Clear copper pour. Not a lot head now, but there may have been some a few hours ago, so Iíll let it slide. Aroma: bandaid/adhesive. Taste: toast, caramel, light campfire. Moderately sweet. Light bitterness. Medium bandaid. Newfoundland (??? wtf autocorrect, thatís "medium") body, slick texture. Overall: the kind of smoked beer that doesnít appeal to me.

Bulk_Carrier (3014) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - OCT 21, 2015
This was poured into a mug with a light hazy bronzed semi-burnt orange to ruddy brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head. Thick foamy lacing roams around the glass after the head dissipated. The smell starts off with a rich sweet to moderately smoked malts. Light meatiness enters in after a bit of warming. The taste was mainly sweet with an ample amount of smoked malt portion. Meatiness is extremely subdued. But a light crisp breadiness does show some extra flavor and ends up leading slightly into the aftertaste and on into a quick sweet moderately smokey finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Smooth sweet to smokiness runs along my tongue nicely. Overall, smoked lager or rauchbier (as I have very little experience with rauchbiers), its good for me and I would have it again.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Moderate dark bread and caramel for the malt, moderate herbs for the hops, and meat for the yeast, with a big note of smoke. Head is small, frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. Full of smoke and the right amount sweetness in this Smoked Beer.

Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy, amber-golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with smoked notes and caramel malts. Taste is bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with smoked notes. OK.

high_on_hops (797) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Pours a hazy light amber with a white, foamy head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of toast and smoke with a flavor of smoke and a bit of dark fruit on a dry but slightly sweet finish, all over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

v8powered (135) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Opened 7/15 but purchased 7/14. Pours a golden orange color with a light white head. Aroma of Frankenscence and Myrrh incense. Reminds me of Catholic Mass in a glass. The flavor takes much like a lager with a shot of scotch in it. On the palette it has strong undertones of a scotch whiskey. Overall good, but more scotch like smoke, not a "campfire like smoke" as stated on the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of beechwood smoke, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of beechwood smoke, lemons, caramel, and malt, leading to a bitter finish.

nuplastikk (5255) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2015
750ml bottle. Tan-copper body, looks filtered. Nice steady, foamy white/off-white head. Classic and well done, reminds me of Spezial Lager. Medium bodied, really easy going. Pretty much nails it. Pleasantly devoid of gimmicks. Would love to see this in sixpacks.
