Our Batch 1000 Smoked Lager has a rich and robust flavor, medium body, and about 5.5% alcohol. It is a copper gold beer with smoky notes in the aroma. If youve never tried a smoked beer, the flavor is unlike any beer youve ever had. Its like a smoky scotch without the burn or Canadian bacon without the pig. The flavor is a complex blending of sweet smoked malt and crisp German hops.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of meat, bacon, smoky notes, some hints of caramel, toffee, touch of pine notes in there as well with a roasted quality. Taste is a mix of bread, caramel, smoke, meaty, campfire flavors into some slight ash, hints of red fruits, finishing bitter.

MiBG Summer Fest 2009, Saturday Session: Deep mahogany hue with a lasting frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite nice and inviting with smoky woody malts vapours along with caramel, plum, fig, and grassy hops esters. The taste had great smoky tones of wood and meat with a malty sweet backbone leading towards a snappy bitter finish. Long woody aftertaste. The mouth feel is chewy and soft with a warming trend. Outstanding and my favorite from the fest, get ya some.

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2004
On tap: Strong smokey aroma. Orangish-gold with a white head. Excellent smoke flavor. Smoke is virtually all the flavor. Reminds me of smoke salmon or beef jerkey. Really enjoyed this one although I dont think I could drink a lot of it.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of unnoted finely sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and copper in color. Its aroma contained notes of smoky malts. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with a flat palate. Its flavor contained smoky malty notes. A very average brew.

Draft at the Arbor Brewing Company Pub & Eatery. Small ivory head, sparse lacing, uncarbonated, transparent, and an orange hue. Smokey aroma and malty and smokey flavor. Smooth, watery, thin mouthfeel. Light bodied beer.

muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2007
10 ounce draught mug at the brewpub on June 19, 2007. Clody dark amber pour with very little head though it sticks around....sweet fruitwood-smoky aroma, hints of cedar, very little earthiness, touch of meaty quality....good pale malt base on the palate, rather tart and bitter/burnt and toasty throughout, sour apple character underlies all of it....somewhat watery, and the carbonation is a bit on the low side, but this is eminently quaffable and tasty overall. Finally got to try this on my 6th visit or so!

jsquire (4261) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2005
On tap at the 2005 MBG Fest. Murky golden amber color with a sweet, smoky nose that I can only describe as sugar-coated jerky. It had a thin, fizzy beige head. Lots of white sugar sweetness with only some subtle smokiness in flavor. I was hoping for more, but it just wasnt there.

tap at brewpub - Pours amber with a thin head. It certainly smells smoky. The flavor is kind of like smoked sausage, but I didnt find the smoke overpowering like I have in a couple smoked beers. The sweet malts balanced the smoke. The finish is pretty much all smoke. Very good.

auerbrau (3204) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2006
A cloudy amber pour with stick off-white head. Aroma of campfire and bacon. Weak. Strong smoke flavor, but it doesnt mingle or mix with anything. Nothing but oversmoked sausage or bacon. Interesting on that level. Not too much depth. Finish is burnt dry. A touch of sweetness in the smack.

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2006
On tap at Arbor. Hazy amber-orange body, no head (a few off-white bubbles). Smokehouse aroma with butterscotchy wisps. Smoke dominates the body, with hickory-smoked bacon coming to mind. Subdued toasty notes beneath the smoky cloak. I didnt pick up much hops character. Well-carbonated despite having no head, and rich of body. Enjoyable, especially considering the variety of flavors and styles offered by the brewery.
