Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery Minneapple Smokin'. German Rauchbier. Brewed with applewood smoked malt. 6.8% ABV.
Clear, bright cherry red coloring, slim white head, swiftly evaporates.
Nose is all smoke, charred wood, fruit, malt. Delightful.
Intense smoke on the palate. Slightly sharp, rich malt favors. Surprisingly light bodied for such robustly flavorful beer. Excellent consumability. I'll polish off this mini growler in no time.
And you know what? I did. Sorry the picture's so lousy, though. Happens sometimes.
