A Classic Rauchbier is a smoked lager beer with a deep rooted history stemming from Bamburg, Germany. We use authentic German Beechwood smoked malt (Rauchmalz) as 97% of our grains for this incredibly smoke-forward brew! Smoke and bacon will consume your senses when you take your first whiff of this dark amber brew. The taste profile is an incredibly clean, malt forward beer that has strong but very palatable smokey flavors and notes of slight malty sweetness that your mouth a little dry and thirsty for more! Hops flavor and aroma is not present in this beer which keeps it very true to style. Our Classic Rauchbier is a great way to experience old world German tradition right in the comfort of your own home! If you like Schlenkerla you'll love this brew!Note: This kit uses Lager Yeast which needs to ferment at ~50F. Please see our love2learn article about proper lagering techniques.
