Default Brewer's Best Rauchbier

Hey guys, I wanted to be lazy during the holidays and decided to buy an extract kit (versus all grain). So I bought the Brewer's Best Rauchbier. Anybody have any opinions on this beer? Do I need to add anything? Overall, I'm a little worried because the yeast had a date of july 2010. Luckily, I did a starter and it appears the yeast are viable. Still, I'm sure the grains are old. I hope this has a subtle smoke taste versus a "licking my charcoal grill" taste that the historical rauchbier has (Schlenkerla Rauchbier).

Just started drinking this. Its actually pretty good. Its darker than I thought it would be closer to an octoberfest style beer with a good smokiness. I'd recommend it.
