Impression: Since we were staying just up the road and were sharing beers, I decided to give their Rauchbier a go. I’d had a bottle of it a few years prior and remembered it as being quite good. It was another beauty with a huge head and nice faint smoke in the nose. It full and quite malty with just a faint smokey note for accent. It had what seems their signature dry, bitter finish. Another good introductory smoke beer for those weary of the style.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
