Set your senses ablaze with Tinder, a smoldering Rauchbier that kindles moderately malty sweetness and robust smokiness. Brewed with Bamberg beechwood-smoked malt, this medium-bodied lager ignites distinct campfire smoke flavors and aroma.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Quite smokey with what Id guess is a Helles base. Not overbearing amounts of meatiness, pretty drinkable for the style. Tasty but I probably wouldnt buy again because I had trouble finishing half a bottle.

It is like fireplace in a bottle. The smokiness seemed very authentic, but there wasnt much more to compliment it... was too over the top for me, but not the worst Ive ever had..

muzzlehatch (4921) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2016
750 ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Delavan, WI, served a little below cellar temp from a Maudite snifter. Deep amber, hazy-cloudy almost to the point of opacity, with a smallish creamy white head that lasts the duration, leaving thick lacing...light smoky-meaty nose with a bit of baked apple - applewood-smoked bacon, perhaps?, along with some hints of thyme and oregano, a general herbal undercurrent, not a huge explosive Schlenkerla-type nose but quite lovely in its more modest way...body is pretty sweet, sugary even at first, though thankfully the toasty-smoky malts do come in, dry it out and give it at least a little finishing bitterness...theres an odd funkiness in the yeast around the middle which I find distracting though not quite offputting, and this dissipates a bit after some minutes...reasonably full, moderate tingly carbonation. Overall pretty solid.

Svesse (8284) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, smoky nose with smoked ham, rye bread, orange peel, apricots and dried fruit. Malty, slightly smoky taste with notes of crisp-bread, apricots, dried fruit, orange peel, balanced flavours of smoke and a gentle spicy, orangey bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Many brewers tend to kill their smoked beers with as much smoke as possible, so it was really nice to find this fine example of a tasty, well balanced and harmonious smoked lager. Nice one.

Bomber shared with Jacob.

Dark brown pour, decent head. Sweet smoky aroma. This one has the misfortune to follow a bottle of the lovely Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier, which is far drier and a bit more subtle. The beer is overpowering with the smoke, but not nearly the gem that the Helles was. This one is sweet and sticky by comparison; the chewy molasses sweetness just doesnt work with the smoke; its like maple syrup on smoked bacon. Not my thing. Not something Id repeat.

deyholla (10902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a near clear amber with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a real bacon smoke note with some sweet grains and bread supporting. Flavor has lots of sweet smoke with sweet grains and a touch of caramel.

Pours a golden yellowcolor. Aromas of roast malts/caramel, smokey smelling. Malty, crisp with nice smoke notes.

weihenweizen (3487) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2016
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is nice smoke, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty lacing. Taste smoke, smoked meat, and wood.

Ar- sweet malt is joined by a light smoke aroma. No hop aroma Ap- pours a clear light Amber with and off white head Fl- very similar to the nose, sweet malts and a slight smoked flavor, almost think of sweetened smoked ham. Nice subtle bitterness on the aftertaste, not really a hop bitter though. Mf- well carbonated, slightly oily, Ov- I like this more than I thought I would. Honestly, I'd like a touch more smoke, and carbonation. Very nice though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
750mL Bottle. Poured slightly cloudy medium orange with a short, but well-retained toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet biscuity and nutty malts gently accented by vanilla beans and campfire smoke.. very soft and well-rounded.. nice! The flavor found similar, with a touch more assertiveness from the smoke.. very sweet and nutty on the back. tangy and dry on the finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied with just the right (low-ish) carbonation.. well-balanced with good transitions.. well done!

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Two years old. Didnt notice that till I got it home, damn. Aroma is strong campfire, smoked ham, some funk, awesomeness. Taste is sweet and smoky, not as promising as the aroma, but still pretty dang good. Mouthfeel is a little too foamy and thin for my tastes. Still, very good overall.
