I cannot freakin' believe that so many people have tried this beer already! It's hard as hell to find in NYC. Since I love Sailer's Altenmunster Premium, I thought I outta give this one a try, and I'm glad I chose to sate my thirst with so fine a rauchbier. It's a session rauchbier, if there's such a thing. It's mildly smoked and you can really get the feel of the malty ale that lurks in the shadows. Surprisingly bitter, but a joy to imbibe. Drink this before you dive into the hardcore Schlenkerla rauchbier line. lovibond (115) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2001
Slight caramel in the aroma and flavor give way to a very appropriate level of smokiness. One of Michael Jackson's videos features the special process used to produce this beer -- fascinating. This is more of a Steinbier than a Rauchbier, so don't expect an agressive smoke character. Great beer! foduck (330) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2002
Smoky aroma. Crystal-clear and orange/golden colored like an oktoberfest. Smoky flavor, a tiny bit of maltiness in the background, adequate bitterness. I really thought this was a great rauchbier. Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 17, 2000
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.
