rauchbier's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
rauchbier (3939) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle. Gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Gentle grassy herbal hops and light caramel sweetness in the nose, dry, bitter and slightly peppery initially in the mouth but with a developing toffee and caramel sweetness before turning hoppily bitter and chalky dry in the finish

Beese (3257) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear copper, with a thin white head and visible force carbonation. Horrible aroma of SN yeast, synthetic fruits and cream soda. Flavours were equally unpleasant and fake; carbonated water, crap biscuits and sugar. Finish was metallic and not nice at all.

Mad_Ferret (1027) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle @ friends place in Brighton, summer 2011.

App: Clear golden amber with a big soapy cream white head leaving nice lacings.

Aroma: Floral and grassy, fruity hoppy with caramel/toffee malts, oranges, apricot. Some crisp bread also.

Taste: Toffeeish with fruity and earthy hops. Oranges, apricots and crisp bread.

Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good!

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Aroma is caramel malts, some yeast, flowery light hop note. Flavour is light fruity/floral hops, long lasting biscuit malt. Nice.

gegwilson (3806) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Amber with not much of a white head. Quite sharp and citrusy with bitter orange. Something of a caramel malt base. OK.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Appearance: Clear amber with thin white head.
Aroma: Orange/lemon marmalade, peppery, spicy. Light caramel note.
Taste: Low/medium bitterness and sweetness with medium sourness.
Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average/prickly carbonation, abrupt fruity, citrus, peppery and light malty finish.
Comments: Surprisingly tasty. I wasn’t expecting much but this was lovely and refreshing.

Gary (2081) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottled: A pleasant rich hop aroma.. floral and butterscotch malt. Some juicy sweet fruit hops - oranges. Green Apple. Notes of straw. Jellybeans. Raw sugar. Caramel malts dry bitter finish

harrisoni (19398) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras, been looking for this beer for some time as I didn’t believe it existed. Clear amber colour thick amber head. Not as horrific as some Sheps bottle beers. Some pepper hop on aroma, some malt fruit and some sheps yeast. Bit too much toffee. Some white pepper hop on finish. Maybe a touch too sweet and a touch empty. Not as badly filtered as some previous beers. Decent hop on the finish.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, off-white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops, Czech pilsener hops, slightly chemical, somewhat grainy. Flavor is a quick flash of hoppy Bohemian pilsener, followed by a watery emptyness. Quite strange short lingering flavor. Refreshing though.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
Bottled 27/12/12. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Stewed fruits and boiled sweets in the aroma. Bitter and fruity in the mouth. Obvious pasteurization yet in spite of that there’s a decent beer trying to get out as the fruitiness from wht I suspect are goldings is strong and tasty. This was surprisingly drinkable.

deanso (10123) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - OCT 10, 2012
50cl bottle from Kellys Expat shop the Hague.
Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Ok but missing something.
