Lakefront Brewery Inc. – Luther – Helles Rauchbier Lager – 4.1 Smokestacks (out of 7)

Lakefront Luther Helles Rauchbier Lager

For a light beer, Luther gets a particularly high score. Entrenched in the culture of Milwaukee, as well as the rest of Wisconsin for that matter, is beer culture, so it should be of no surprise that Lakefront makes a good beer. Luther, a Helles (light) Rauchbier, is really a beginner smokebeer with a light smoke and nuttiness finish. One Ministry official noted, “not saison, not fruity, not floral.” And why they decided to mention that this beer was not these three seemingly random flavors is a mystery. I can see myself returning to this one. Overall Happiness 4.1 Smokestacks.

Brewer Lakefront Brewery, Inc.
Beer Name LUTHER (Made a: helles rauchbier lager)
Brewer’s Description We’re talking smooth, mildly sweet smokiness with prevalent malt flavor and low bitterness. It all comes from the Pilsner, Vienna, and beechwood smoked malts, making it reminiscent of the beer of Bamberg, Germany. Look for golden coloring and malty, smoky aroma to complete the theme. Mmm…toasty!
Food Pairings Any grilled or smoked entrée: ribs, bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp, smoked salmon, caramelized onions
Brewer Location Milwaukee, WI
Alcohol content by volume 4.5%
IBU (International Bitterness Units) 20
Beer opacity rate 1 – 7 (light – dark) 2
Smell smoke? 1 – 7 (No – George Burns) 2
Sausage detection? Y or N N
Smokepower taste: 1 – 7 Smokestacks 1.875
Overall Happiness Rating: 1-7 (low – high) 4.1

There can’t possibly be a law requiring one be 21 years old before looking at a beer website, can there?
