Justin Philips Says: "A little shocking at first, this is a classic rauchbier (smokebeer) that's incredibly aromatic due to the unusual technique Schlenkerla uses for making their malts: They're smoked over a beechwood fire. It's reminiscent of meat—bacon in particular—but once you get into it, it's very refreshing."
