George’s Bachelor Party September 2013. Pours a pretty clear golden, light. The smoke is ok in the nose but the taste is nothing great. Camp fire in a bad way. Like 3 weeks later on a sweatshirt.

Tap at sam’s yellow golden with a thin sticky white lace. Nose is light crackery malts, light sweet biscuit, light earthy citrus, faint smoke. Flavor shows a bit more smoke, crackery malts, some pine and citrus hop character. A nice smokey Helles even if the hops are amped up a bit more than is traditional.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Toronado San Diego... Poured cloudy, bright, pale yellow with a moderate, fizzy, white head. Nose had a hint of smoked meats. Had malt sweetness with charred ashes and smokiness through the middle to the finish. Some sweetness for balance, low hop character and a moderate yeast tone. But quite clean with a lingering smokiness in the finish.
