Finger of head. Clear, medium straw colored body.
Smells like bread, grain and smoke in that order.
Nice sweet taste, mild bitterness. Smoke in the background throughout. A really nice balance of flavors.
Crisp and light body, moderate carbonation. Short finish.
Enjoyable. A lager with some gentle smoke to it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unique approach. Juxtaposition of mild helles style with no malts but grainy, grassy notes and cereal backbone and campfire smoke. Smells like a campfire with liquid smoke. Heavy smoky notes with light malts, cereal notes a bit of grassy and floral notes. Lingering smoky notes and ashtray.
