2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Lager
Sub-Style Name:Bamberg-Style (Smoke) Rauchbier Lager

Rauchbier should have smoky characters that range from detectable to prevalent in the aroma and flavor. Smoke character is not harshly phenolic, but rather very smooth, almost rendering a perception of mild sweetness to this style of beer.

The beer is generally toasted malty sweet and full-bodied with low to medium-low hop bitterness. Noble-type hop flavor is low but may be perceptible. The aroma should strike a balance between malt, hop, and smoke. Fruity esters, diacetyl, and chill haze should not be perceived.

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):3.6-5% (4.6-6.3%)
Colour:10-20 (20-40 EBC)
Original Gravity:1.048-1.060 (12-14.5 šPlato)
Final Gravity:1.012-1.016 (3-4 šPlato)
