massingasetta (691) - Mnchen, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2015
A rauchbier should be smoky, like a slightly aged smoked ham. This is amongst the best straight forward Rauchbiers there are. A good fresh and drinkable smoked beer. Wow!

Brewhemia (274) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2015
Clear amber color with lots of thick off white head. Looks really nice and the foam curtains beautifully throughout the drinking. Strong but balancd aroma of smoke and leather. Much milder tasting beer than the aroma lets you think. It has a light sweetness to it and the smokeyness seem to only dominate the aroma. Not much bitterness. Over all a good balance between the smokey aroma and the sweet taste. Good medium full body.

Leighton (19552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Draft at Brauerei Spezial in Bamberg during the Post-Christmas Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear, rich amber-gold with a frothy, white head. Gorgeous, with light smoke in the nose, moderately sweet flavour, fire, beechwood, toasted cereal. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderate smokey fire on the finish, with dry cured ham, toasted bread. Excellent beer.

SkillsFactory (631) - ITALY - NOV 15, 2015
Ambrata carica con riflessi caramello, limpida, schiuma ocra leggerissimo, quasi bianca, fine ma non molto persistente. Aroma affumicato (speck), leggerissima crosta di pane, zucchero caramellato. Al palato sempre speck anche se meno marcato, zucchero caramellato e crosta di pane che permane sul finale insieme ad una nota affumicata e lievemente erbacea. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata, abbastanza acquosa, molto beverina.
