February 15, 2017. On tap at Akkurat. Lowenbrau (4287) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2017
Light hazy golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is smokey and malty with a meaty note, toffee, fresh bread crust, grain and hay. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation. Finish is smokey, light bitter with a touch of grass and hay, light to medium malty sweetness with bread and hints of toffee.
Quite nice, prefer the ones with a slightly heavier malt character though.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2016 Colore biondo limpida con schiuma biancastra molto compatta e persistente. Aroma lieve di affumicato. Al palato ancora inizia affumicata con sentori di pancetta, ma svaniscono subito. Finale amarognolo un po’ debole. Corpo leggero, carbonazione medio bassa. Discreta ma le. Manca qualcosa.

(live at the Schlenkerla) Almost cloudy, ruby amber colour with a firm mid-sized and slightly beige foamy head. Moderately smoked malty aroma with the impression of smoked ham, even slightly nutty, also slightly grainy with a whiff of herbal, old world hops in the background. Rounded bitter-sweet flavour, light to almost medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Moderately smoked malty taste with hints of smoked ham and sausages, cereals, backed by herbal hops; lingering bitter-sweet finish. Very balanced and more-ish Rauchbier. 12.VIII.16

Gravity pour from the barrel @ GBBF 2014. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small head. Nose is substantial and personable. Fat smokiness. baked ham. Brown sugar. Flavor is less smoke-heavy, a bit more subtle. Mellow crystal malt. Baked bread. Light lemon accents. Soft smoke. Palate lets the beer down a bit - watery and under carbonated. Feels a touch lifeless. Only OK - would love to have tried this in better condition. gegwilson (3708) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Keg at the GBBF 2016. Golden with a frothy off white head. Nice smoked bacon aroma. The taste has hay, beans and bacon with a woody smoked finish. A bit weird, but lovely. SinH4 (4796) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2017 Barrel at the brewery. Hazy orange color with eggshell head. Aroma is smoky ham, lots of sweetish pale malts, earthy hops. Taste is a crisp Helles, sweet maltiness feeling paired with a light ham smokiness, a bit herbal as well. Low carbonation, with a solid earthy bitterness in the finish. A great summer sipper! 7-4-8-5-16 SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - JUL 30, 2016
