Kupferfarben glänzend vermittelt das Rauchbier bereits einen optisch ansprechenden Eindruck, der Lust auf mehr macht. In der Nase erscheinen sofort zu Beginn vielschichtige Aromen nach geräuchertem Schinken, die jedoch von feiner Malzsüße und differenzierter Hopfenbittere elegant und harmonisch eingebunden werden. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich das Bier in seiner vollen, individuellen Aromatik nach geräuchertem Buchenholz und Schinken, fruchtige Malzaromen puffern auch hier mit abrundender Süße. Durch den bewusst gemäßigten Rauchmalzeinsatz können Hopfenbittere und Malzigkeit ergänzend neben die Räuchernoten treten und verhelfen dem Bier somit zu einem individuellen, aber dennoch frisch-animierenden Charakter.

Note: Formerly known as Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Raiterla Rauchbier and Rittmayer Rauchbier. 12°. 38 EBC.

The head is ok, the body dark-brown. It smells malty, smoky. The taste is malty, smoky, sweet-smoky. Not very interesting for a smoked beer but drinkable. 10/10/10/10/12/10

Swing-top bottle 50cl. @home into a lager glass. Clear medium amber, tall frothy beige head, half-way lasting, fair lacing; aroma roasted malts, smoked meat, caramel, burnt wood; taste medium sweet and bitter, mild smoked, caramel, retronasal smoke; sweetbitter aftertaste, smoky and earthy notes; medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation; really pleasant rauchbier, easy to drink.

Light amber, misty, poor foam. The nose is rather gentle, just some crushed peppercorn and some toasted grain. Nice meaty smokiness in the taste, juicy pastrami, with some light caramel and some faint nail polish. Some hints of baked apple, too. Aftertaste has just some light smokiness, but otherwise it’s pretty clean. Refreshing, but it lacks depth. Not as good as the old version.

Dunkles Kastanienbraun mit wuchtiger Krone, die aber schnell zerfällt. Röstmalziger Antrunk, feine Rauchnoten von Schinken und Buchenholz, feinherb im Abgang.

Aroma is dominated by caramel with notes of butterscotch. Deep amber in the glass with frothy off-white head. Taste is semi sweet with notes of caramel, some bready touch, dried fruit and gentle smokiness in the background, however beer is bit watery. Nothing special at all, caramel is my enemy in that kind of styles.

Bottle from Lekkerbier, Sint Nicolaasga. Aroma is smoked malt, burnt wood, smoked ham, caramel with a slight touch of dried fruits. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. A very proper Rauchbier, good smoke and goes down easily.
