Draft. Amber colour. Light smokey aroma. Malty (toasty malts, smoked malts, toffee/caramel). Light hops. Sweetish and smoked malty. Subtle smoke. Enjoyed this a lot. Nice lightly smoked beer. (2008) 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2015
From draft at the brewery in Schlusselfeld. Clear chestnut brown with a lasting off-white head. Malty and clean and smoky in the way of speck and honey ham and tobacco. Hops show as lemon juice and herbs, malt is cookie-like and lightly toasty with notes of apple butter, oily chestnuts, and smoked ham. Medium bodied and with enjoyably play of sweet and savory and salty and bitter, it’s well-balanced and flavorful and the subtle Rauchmalt character adds a nice touch. fonefan (51574) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2011

Draught @ Sternbrau Schlusselfeld, Kirchplatz 12, Schlusselfeld, Bavaria, Germany 96132.
Clear medium amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, light smoke - meat. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, smoke - meat, caramel. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Enjoyed @ the brewery, in the presence of Herr Scheubel, the old brewer, himself. The brewer just calls it festbier. It is probaly a new recipe, instead of the ’old’ festbier. JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2009
Amber color. Malty aroma with cookie dough and the slightest hint of smoke. Fat smoked sausage flavor, malty, softly smoked with hints of tobacco, lingering on in the aftertaste. Indeed comparable with some other rauchbeers brewed in the Franconian countryside. Good!!
Draught Copper-foxy beer, amberish tinted head. Good, if restrained smoked hamaroma, smoked beechwood. NICE! Fresh, smoked malt/ham flavours, with a sweet finish. Much more refreshing than the "usual" Rauchbiere; medium bodied, sticky as a Rauchbier ought to be. Nice one. A good one to compare to the Rauchzart from Barnikel, Herrnsdorf.

Gravity at Zeitgeist Bier Mania Oktoberfest 08. Amber with a dense off white head. Predominatley malty with a hint of caramel and the subtest touch of smokieness. An interesting variation on the classics from Bamberg. yespr (48087) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
From tap at Zeitgeist. Pours clear and golden orange with a creamy and slight off-white head. Butterish and mild roasted malty aroma. Light caramel in the initial flavour. Vague buterish note too. Light smoke note on the back of the nose. diabel (1723) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2008
Draught at Bruxellensis 2008, Brussels, Belgium JoeinDahlem (1603) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2008
Clear amber body. Off-white, creamy/rocky head. Lightly smokey roma. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour with smokey ints. Nice, though not great.
Draught at Bruxellensis, thanks to Andy Neil of Bier-Mania tours. Classic amber color and caramel-nutty nose with just a hint of distant campfire to it. Mild, caramel sweetness and light bitterness to match it evenly, then there’s that subtle campfire bacon in the backdrop, After draining half the glass I paired it with a Belgian smoked sausage and entered a weird continental nirvana. Just lovely. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravity serving at Zeitgeist.
Excellent amber brown colour with a very good off white head and thick, almost solid lace. Nice malty aroma with some light tobacco, creamy caramel and good smoky notes. Very very slight lick of vanilla. Flavour is excellent. Gorgeous malt, a tiny sprinkling of hops, tobacco, sweet caramel notes and some bloody superb smoke. More delicate that a lot of this style but it really is tasty. A burnt dryness to the finish with a rollercoaster to follow of sweetness, smoke and then a lingering bitterness. Lovely stuff. The more I drink the better it gets. Maybe if I drank 5 pints it would be the best beer ever!
