An experimental beer that combines unlikely elements to a surprisingly refreshing effect: the base beer here is a German-style kolsch, brewed with just a touch of Scottish peat malt. Chopped lemon peel was added to the kettle, and the finished beer shows a complex marriage of smoke and citrus.

Tap @ Breakside... Poured clear amber/orange with a rocky, white head. Nose had a bit peat and citrus. Tasted of smoke and peat, charred grains with bitter rind-like spice and citrus. Clean yeast, low esters. Quite quenching. Drying finish with lemon peel and lingering smoked after taste.
