Red Hare Brewing Company has readied the next edition in the Rabbit’s Reserve series: Rauchbier. The Rabbit’s Reserve is a series of draft only, on-off releases. Rauchbier, or smoke beer, uses smoked and dark roasted malts.
Rauchbier is reminiscent of a German-style Oktoberfest and can literally be translated to “smoked beer”. Munich, smoked, and dark roasted malts provide this brew with its softly smoked flavor and smooth maltyness. It is lightly bittered in order not to overwhelm the palate and to keep the smoky malt profile upfront. This is a particularly aromatic brew with hints of bacon coming through on the nose. Golden copper in color, and surprisingly drinkable this beer comes in at 6.8% ABV.
If you go:
