Our Mutual Friend Brewing Gelber Rauch

What the brewers say

Balanced, smokey, and delicious.

What our panel thought

Light smoke with a slight rye-like spiciness; floral, earthy-pine notes. Smoke flavor is more assertive, but with pleasant bready malt and piney hop notes, balanced rather than clashing with the smoke. Would make the perfect companion to babysitting your smoker then enjoying the fruits of your labor.

What our editors thought

Nose offers charred wood with delicate smoke, blending with lightly sweet malt. The sip doesn't overwhelm—distant campfire, not meat smoker—backed by light, lemony malt sweetness. Slight hops bitterness arrives for a clean finish.
