Impression: I’d had this tasty Rauchbier before but think i appreciated it more after their smoky Dopplebock as it was quite a bit more approachable and certainly more quaffable. This is a great intro beer to the smoky style. It’s balanced and has a nice hoppiness that the smoke element doesn’t overshadow. It’s a beer with smoke, rather than a smoke beer.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
