Poured a very pleasent copper color with a sticky head. I had no idea that this q\was going to be a smoked beer and I knew I was in trouble as soon as I smelled it. Though not as overboard with the smoke as some German Rauchs, but still too much for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Raleigh. Nice bright copper pour, frothy head and an inviting but subdued smoke aroma. Clean, crisp mouthfeel with perhaps a touch of grit. Taste is quite understated for a rauch, like a fairly grainy amber lager with smoke additions. Not especially complex, but a game effort.
