Marheb (2925) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
En fût au Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen): Une base sucrée pour supporter une fumée molle. Une touche minérale empêche à peine les sucres d’être encombrants.

Draft at BP Miramar. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like smokey wood, ash, citrus hops, and pale cracker malts. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like ash, smokey wood, dry cracker malt, and light citrus.

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2015
On tap at the Ballast Point tasting room in Little Italy. On Cask. Assume this is the beer - on menu as Beech-smoked Hellos w/Bourbon Soaked Sugar Maple Chips & Maple Syrup. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Smoke, citrus, earthy, and some maple.

BOSSbrewer (2522) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 23, 2014
On tap at their place in little Italy. Pours a fairly clear yellow. Aroma is smoke with some floral and slight lemon. Nice beer but tastes salty. Finishes clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 "Another smoke beer than BP hits outta the park. Much lighter in body and flavor than the Abandon Ship, but with similar smoke character. Very nice aroma and flavor. Not subtle, not too much...juuust right."

Tmoney99 (11711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Draft. Poured hazy golden color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate smoke and hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet smoke with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good smoke beer.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have more smoked malt than I expected from the appearance, yeast, meaty, with a hint of char bitterness to the finish, just a touch of some underlying fruity character, interesting brew for sure.

b3shine (6403) - Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent lighter gold with ample foamy white head. Smells solid too; a nice balance of lager yeast and smoke. Tastes like it smells with a mildly bittersweet backbone. Smooth but lively on the palate. This exceeded my expectations.

On tap at Dutch’s. Invoice read "Smoked Hellas" and I was excited because that’s a fantastic name for a lager, especially one from California. Seems like it was just a typo, though... Keg is labeled Smoke Screen. One of the first pours from the keg yields a golden color, mostly hazy with lots of fine particles in the body.. Thin off-white head with great retention, leaving excellent thicker lace. Awesome big savory smoke character in the flavor, reminds me of Aecht Schlenkerla’s helles. Bready doughy malt, very light pepperiness. Good crisp herbal hop on it. Medium-plus body, good full mouthfeel. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Very smooth and easy-drinking. Awesome crisp flavorful swiggable smoked helles. Hella good. Would probably be fantastic to wash a sandwich down with.
