#13 Review by HonkeyMoFo from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
It pours a light copper with a thick and foamy dirty white head and a ring of lacing. An aroma of caramel malts, hickory, faint hops, light citrus, bitterness, and some spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, smoked flavor - almost smoked salmon, light orange, light bitterness, light raisin and mild spices. Excellent! .. although different, I just love the "smoky" flavor - unique!

Sampled on 5/14/2010. This smoked lager pours a medium copper color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, grain and smoke. A medium bodied smoked beer. The malts are cereal, grain and smoke. The hops are spicy. Nice mild smoky lager. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

#10 Review by Vac from San Diego, California, United States
Score: 2.7 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 4 | Overall 5 |
Bottle at O’briens. Pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin to medium thick, quickly disappearing head wtih some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a hint of grassy hops. Not really any smokey notes. The flavor is sweet and smokey with notes of molasses. Kinda tastes like smoked salmon. Light bodied, crisp and a little dry.

#9 Review by Sap from Tucson, AZ, United States
Score: 3.9 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 8 | Overall 7 |
A strong pour produces a three-finger thick, tan colored head that sits on top of a clear, dark cherry colored brew, which shows a brilliantly clear, copper tinted, bright red color when held up to the light. Even as I pour this I notice the obvious smoke influence; decidedly smoke influenced, it does have some light influences of biscuit like grain, some sweet-caramelized malt and a light toasted malt character that mixes with a rich, savory smokiness. Not overwhelmingly smoked, but enough that it quite drowns out a lot of other aromatic notes.

Lightly soft as it hits the tip of my tongue, the beer feels fairly light and it picks up a prickle of carbonation texture as it flows across my tongue. The beer finishes with a light, palate coating, heft that is caused by sweetly smoky malt character. Quite sweet actually and this helps to balance the smoke much more than the nose might have suggested. Flavors of smoked caramel, some light fruit notes from the sweet grain and a nice toasted grain profile are found here. Even the rich smokiness found here adds to the perception of sweetness, though it never gets cloying, it is most definitely a beer with a bit of heft. Up front the smoke is rich, savory and sweet, but it has a touch of a drying effect on the finish, not enough to clean the palate of the lingering malt sweetness, but enough that it is lightly noticeable.

I am a sucker for Rauchbiers, this one is quite tasty if not particularly unique for the style.

Purchased: Plaza Liquors, Tucson AZ

#7 Review by Chef Chad from Omaha, NE, United States
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
I love the idea of smoked beer but have yet to accuire a taste for it. This beer was mild in smoked flavor with a heavy smoke aroma. It was ok for me but fans of smoked style beers should enjoy it.

#6 Review by Cottrell from , United States
Score: 4.1 | Aroma 9 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 9 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Pours a red tinged copper, with a finger of off white foam. Decent retention, some sporadic lacing here and there. Compelling aroma, sweet toffee and caramel, smoked ham, faint butterscotch. Flavor begins sweet, lots of caramel and butterscotch, a rush of smoke follows the sweetness, without overwhelming it. Finishes out a touch drier than it began with some mild grassy bitterness, and maintains the meaty smokiness. The smoke and sweetness mingle perfectly on an incredibly smooth palate. Not quite as aggressive as a Bamberg original, but a delicious beer regardless.

#5 Review by kinger from North Canton, oHIo, United States
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 8 |
Light, mild smoke overlays a more faintly roasted malt nose. The meaty smokiness comes out more as it warms, fine for sure. Attractive burnt copper pour with a half inch tan head and spotty lacing. Medium bodied, filling with a grand smoothness. Solid malt flavor with a complimenting taste of fresh smoke. Woody and roasted, the taste is nice and "meaty". Fortunately the smoke is not too heavy so it doesn't hide a relatively nice light malt content. Assertive enough to be enjoyable.
