paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Tap at the Newhall Refinery. Pour is clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is smoke and biscuit malt. Flavor is lightly smokey, bready, biscuity maltiness. Finish is light smoked maltiness. At 7% this one was quite sessionable and very dangerous, great beer!

Ferris (14799) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2016
Draft - Nice smokey sweet notes. Clear gold with a small head. Nice sweet smoke and a light body. Definately a well done session smoked, while still being aggressive.

Over-the-top smokiness to start but finishes well. Perfect with a lot of foods but not great on its own for its boldness. But really good with food almost as a continuation of eating. Aroma doesn't match the taste in strength for me (wife disagrees). On tap at Bru in Lake Forest, CA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1853) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Clear orange amber in a one-finger off-white head, modest retention and lace. Big smoky aroma dominates, accompanied by modest citrus and cured meats. Moderate malt sweetness. Medium body, light carbonation and a lingering sweetness and plenty of smoke in the finish.

Ontape (471) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
On tap. ABV listed at 5.8%. Pours amber, not much head, very clear. Big smoke nose with lager yeast behind. Drinks very clean: smoke and raisin notes up front. A bit sweet but overall balanced; smoke is strong but not overwhelming.

On draft. Like so many weak-tea rauchbiers, this one is more raisin in aroma and flavor than smoke. Too sweet. A tentative example of the style. Finishes crisply, at least.

joeneugs (6370) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
On tap at the brewery. It pours a nice clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is fruity, salty and smoked with some jerky. The flavor is nice with good jerky smoke character and a decent caramel malt backbone. The smoke takes center stage but is off set nicely with the maltiness. Very impressive.

Really nice smoked lager, on tap at Smog City, nice golden pour and strong smokey flavor

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
On tap @ Smog City. Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is smoke, bacon, salt, and sweet fruits. Bready malt and a bit of orange peel. Flavor is fairly sweet, surprisingly. Salty, smokey meat (bacon). Fairly citrusy/orange peel notes. Sweet bread and perhaps apple.
