As a rauchbier, you can expect for it to be smokey and dry. It has a low hop profile on the nose, but a good malt and smoke balance. It has a good, smooth mouthfeel and is fairly carbonated. The roasted malt and smokey flavours are what I enjoyed the most. I didn’t stop at one… and kept not knowing what to rate it. So go try some and leave your ratings in the comments!
