Brewed for the 10th Extreme Beer Festival, this is a hybrid of a Rauchbier and a Gose. Ten ingredients were cxhosen by DFH, the Alstrom Brothers, and the BeerAdvocate community, all from tiny producers. Crown-Breaker is nod to the Jack and Jill ryhme, as Jason and Todd Alstrom literally went down to the beach to fetch a pail of water for this brew.

Rated on 02-28-2013 on tap at DFH Brewery, Redobeth Beach, DE. This beer’s appearance is a tan small head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, no carbonation noted, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is some malt, toasty and smoke. The flavor is malt, smoke and mild hoppiness. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable, but the flavors just do not come together to make this a very tasty beer.

Out of the various festival-exclusives that Sam has brewed for EBF to date, this was my personal favorite. A very interesting take on rauchbier with smokiness and a bit of the beautiful saltine cracker character of Gose. Not something I could consume a pint of, but solid for a festival beer.

Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin white head. Faint campfire, smoke, toast. Chewy smoke, toast. Long smoke and earthy hop bite, more campfire on the finish.

On tap at Rehoboth. Cloudy and copper. Smells bready. Doughy malts with a salty medicinal aftertaste. Reminds me of chloriseptic, which isn’t good.

Brewpub exclusive. Cloudy copper/orange color with very little to no head. Aromas are woody, grassy, and slightly sour. Taste is malty, wood, sour with an almost salty after taste.

This draft brew from the brew pub poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was orange peel and musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of wheat sweet chamomile crisp && clean hops malt and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
