My Bottom Line: jonno (2980) - JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Beechwood smoke and mild hoppiness define this simple but pleasant Rauchbier.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy pale brown.
-There are no ‘ale’ qualities in this one ; I’m happily surprised.
-Malt flavors are well polished.
-This is not an over-the-top Rauchbier à la Schlenkerla. It’s more of a quencher like Spezial, Hönig or Fischer, to give you an idea.
Lightly smoked, a tad more peaty than anything. Smooth but slightly undercarbed body. Pleasant.

Bottled. Nice smoky nose, katusbushi, chocolate. Cloudy brown with lace. Nose is a bit faint but nice. Nice smoky, lager-like flavor. Simple but tasty with chocolate and smoke. Very drinkable, Bambergian. Good level of intensity.
