Impression: I hadn’t had this in ages so was glad to see it on tap. It’s a largely overlooked Rauchbier with a lovely richly malty palate, well balanced with underlying hops. The lingering finish is semi-dry and moreish. Drinking it in the courtyard on a brewing day was perfect, the wafting malt lingering in the air much like it does in the beer. I had it a few weeks later and it was filtered when it was clearly unfiltered on my earlier visit. Not sure if this is an occasional offering or if done regularly?

Next beer or back to the beer list.
