3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany color with sweet malty and smoky aroma. Light body. Not too heavy on the palate. Roasted malt and fruit besides the smokiness dominate the flavor. Not bad. The mouth feel could be better as well as the flavor complexity.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Chestnut. Clear. Medium-sized white head that clings to the glass. Lightly smoked malt aroma. Light münchener malt flavours. Definitely a lager. Feels a little thin, and the body is light. Could have used a lot more smoked malt to make this a better beer. As it is there is way too little of everything. Not a particularly good rauchbier.

Very smoky aroma with some esters and a little oxidized character. Cloudy reddish-brown under a white sheet. Bready and toasty malt flavour with a very subtle and pleasant smoke. Good balance with bitterness and roast. Medium body, moderate carbonation, though prickly. Almost clean, smoky finish.

Coppery reddish with a light tan ting. Lightly smoked. Toasty. Lighter caramel malt. Light clean body with low carbonation. Clean light smokey malt. Light toast. Very clean. Lightly fruity. Very little smoke in this smoked beer, but not deeply flawed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a gold with a lot of carbonation looking into the glass and a small white head. This may have been burnt or smoked but not too much. This was watery for this type as this is my favorite type of beer right now. On the weak side.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a crisp bright golden brown color. Aromas of peat, smoke, and vegetables. Flavor is metallic vegetable tasting. Not a lot of Rauch in this one compared to the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen.
