500ml bottle. Aroma is sweet and malty. Appearance is brown with a very small head. Taste is sweet and light bitter. Has a thin mouth feel. Does not feel like a smoked beer. Overall a more or less OK beer.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Aroma of smoked salmon and unwashed socks. Crazy stuff and one more reason to never drink a smoked one again.

Well I drank this beer after I had a couple of others plus wine and thought that I sure could endure it when feeling little bit funny as smoked is the most awful style for me. This beer was even worse than expected and this should mean something. Taste of old smoked salmon and bad kaviar. Absolutely awful. I must admit that I got immediately sick.

Recht starke Bittere vermischt mit Röstigkeit und malznote. Vom Rauch ist hier nur sehr wenig zu finden. Recht vollmundig mit angenehmer Rezens.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark amber colour, hazy, medium thick head which was quick to disappear but some lacing was retained. Aroma was smoked malt, smoke was there but not overbearing. Tasted hints of rasperry and oak, tasted sweeter than other smoked beers, smoke was present but ubderstated, well balanced. Texture was slightly thick, smooth texture, not much carbonation. Enjoyed it, nice to have a smoked beer without too much smoke.

Served in the Castle Hotel Burg Veldenstein, Neuhaus Pegnitz, Franconia which acts as a tap house for the Veldenstein/Kaiser Brau range (Nov ’11).
Served in a stone/porcalain tankard so difficult to fully appreciate the colour but appeared a mid copper brown, not too dark, not as dark as other Rauchbiers I’ve had.
Lightly smoked rauch, nowhere near as intense as others.
Other flavours peeping through past the smoking were oaky/wood and toffee.
A little grainy on the palate.
