In Northeast Bavaria, one of the local specialties is Rauch, or smoked, Beer. We decided that it would be fun to see what we could do with this style. While not as smoky as some beers from Germany, this beer shows a little smokiness in the nose, along with some malty notes (there were no finishing hops in this beer, so no hop aroma). On the palate, the malt and smoke interplay with each other, with the dextrins combining with the smoke to bring out an almost bacon-y flavor. The finish is crisp and savory, inviting you back for another sip. (1.015 BG, 5.15%, 24 IBU, 10 SRM).
