This Smoked Lager is a homage to the traditional rauchbier of Bamberg.
It has an intense smoky flavour coming from the drying of the malt over a beechwood fire. We used a blend of four different kinds of malt to achieve a deep amber colour and a great balance between smokiness and sweetness.
We added German noble hops in the boil, fermented it with our house lager yeast and cold conditioned it for 45 days. The end result is a satisfyingly rich but very balanced and drinkable beer, perfect for the colder autumn evenings.
