Tap. Not really an intense smoke aroma, even less smoke flavour. The profile is ok, being of that wood&meat type. Subtle rauchbier, not bad certainly but nowhere near the best ones out there.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Recht wenig Schaumentwicklung. Riecht schön rauchig mit leichtem Schinkenaroma. Geschmacklich fällt das wunderbar weiche Brauwasser auf, bevor die rauchig-schinkige Note einsetzt. Dennoch nicht zu intensiv und daher süffig.

Ottima affumicata di casa Weiherer, colore biondo con pochissima schiuma, aroma intenso di porchetta-bacon, malto affumicato in perfetto risalto. Molto beverina nonostante la tipologia.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bierothek. Rather pale orange-gold. Nose of ham and bacon on a buttered roll, with a slice of peach. Quite sweet and fruity, estery too, honey-glazed ham, speck, an off one for a rauch. Quite a bit of hops here too. Bitter finish. Quite drinkable, even though this is not my kind of rauch. Here’s to them for trying something so original though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear gold. Film of sticky, white head. Grainy malts. Floral hop. Meaty, savoury smoke on top. Taste is smoky sweet. A hint of dry. A hint of bitter. Pretty clean palate. Very drinkable, with soft carbonation. Finishes smoky sweet. Light, bitter linger. Very nice.

People overuse the "bacon" descriptor with smoked beers but I can't go anywhere else with this: it was distinctly bacony. Dark orange-tinted gold and whiffing of smoked meat even as it hit the counter. Just enough malt sweetness and quick snap of bitterness to balance... Nearly too smoky but I could drink another.

Color of typical lager. Lightly smoked - smokey taste doesn’t last long. Minimal sweetness. Nice, bitter finish. Minimal head. Disappointing aftertaste - feels like cheap lager. High drinkability. Fizzy.
