3.2
rauchbier (3933) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Bottled. Copper coloured, initial head drops straight off and moderate condition does little to help. Low aromas of caramel and hops, but hops develop nicely in the mouth along with some toffee. Finish is dry and hoppy. Nice undemanding session beer.

Bottle. Poured a good bright gold colour with a thick white head. Very fruity in the nose and orangey fruitiness, in the taste. A good session beer.
