Brauerie Göller Rauchbier (5.2%)

Oh man, this is one hell of a good smoked lager.
As you pour it smells of a campfire in a dewy woodland, sweet wood smoke and a dark leafiness.
The malting here is dense with gooey toffee and has an earthy, almost mushroomy, soil-like fullness.
Göller’s smoke drifts about getting into all the nooks of this lovely beer, filling your nose and adding a super rich mist that envelopes all the flavours contained here.
And those flavours build and grow as you work your way down the glass.
The toffee gives way to delicious forest fruits, stewed and warming, which in turn step back to allow the marvellous hopping to come to the fore.
Big red brown leaves crunch, a touch of pine resin pokes at you with a peppery hazel switch, and a light floral and citrus tinted dryness finishes things off.
This beer is like camping out in beautiful woodland, sitting around a fire and telling stories of adventures.
I love it.
