My Bottom Line : Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Beechwood smoked malts seduce from aroma to finish in this simple but ever-so-efficient Rauchbier.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty amber.
-Carbonation is quite prickly (artificial). Drinkability would be higher with softer, natural carbonation, imho.
-Mouthfeel is as crisp as all of their lagers.
-Subtle herbal hops add depth, but this is still a brew for smoke lovers, and smoke lovers only.
On tap at the brewpub.
On draft, big plisner flavors, smoke, light and tasty, pretty good stuff. I like it TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010

On tap at Flatbread Burlington.Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2011
Appearance : Clear amber with no head.
Aroma : Fruity and smokey. Woody and malty.
Taste : Malt, wood and smoked ham. Smokey finish with light caramel.
Overall : Great smokes profile. nothing special but well made and tasty. Quite drinkable especially for a smoked.
In short: A very smoky and very hoppy/bitter golden ale. Tasty stuff.VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is moderately smoky and the smoke is more like smoked ham than smoked wood. Somehow once I started drinking the beer the taste felt uber-smoky. Lots of smoke over toasted caramelized crackers-like malts, Ritz™ comes to mind with its vaguely cheesy flavor. Generously hopped by a strong leafy and resinous bitterness. This is a tasty beer.
Another good food and beer evening at Flatbread. At first our plan was to hit Vermont Brewpub just across the street but the food and beer was just too good at Flatbread. So I decided not to cross the street, because you know, I’m not a chicken.
Draft (sample) at SIPtemberfest 2011 - Pours a darkish amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is a bit malty and medium of a peaty smoke. Flavor is also mildly smokey with a medium maltiness. The hops are muted, but present. I like this because the smoke is not at all over the top. Good one!

Very light and smokey. Could use a bit more malty sweetness to counter the dry cracker malts and smoke. overall its decent but lacking.
