GABF. Pours a clear amber appearance with an off white head. Moderately meaty smoky, light woody, caramel aroma that seemed a touch off. A little herbal, chewy woody, smoked, moderate caramel flavor. Ehhhh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half a pint, on tap at The Lackman. Mostly clear yellow orange color. Thin white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of softer, lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Very nice smokey malt aroma to it, light caramel, pretty well-balanced. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Great, well-balanced smoked lager. Enough smoke to satisfy me (I like ’em smokey), with some savory taste to accompany that. On par with Aecht Schlenkerla’s marzen, from what I remember, maybe even more smooth

Pour on tap, hazy orange-yellow pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of smoke, slight caramel, toffee, hints of grass, pine and slight earth tones in there, some slight bacon like note from the smoke. Taste is a mix of bacon, campfire smoke, hints of grass, orange and cracker, slight spice, caramel, finishing smoky, slightly sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Muddy Pig. Rich yellow pour with a frothy white head. A little yeast and smoke on the aroma. Flavors blend kinda funny, but not too bad. Decent brew.

Draft to taster at Bell’s. Looks like a good lager. Smell is virtually nonexistent. Tastes pretty good; not overly Smokey. Nice on the palate too. Solid for the style.
