My Bottom Line :
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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2011
In short: A very smoky and very hoppy/bitter golden ale. Tasty stuff.
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, Im not a chicken.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
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.
