Smoked Beers for Bonfire Night

Three great smoked beers to quaff around the bonfire tonight and this weekend


Aecht Schlenkerla Märzen, 5.1%

If you like bacon, you'll love this beer. Smells of smoked meats, has a medium body, and finishes off with a smoky aftertaste, but without too much bitterness.

Orbit Leaf Rauch Alt, 6.2%

First tried this last year and very glad that Orbit are making it again. The smoke is balanced well with the more fruity Altbier style. Smooth and very drinkable

Beavertown Smog Rocket Smoked Porter, 5.4%

Apparently inspired by the Industrial Revolution, when porter was as abundant as the smog. The caramel and chocolate tones of the porter match well with the smoke here. Not too much of a body, but a nice roasted finish.
