3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice creamy beige head that retained as a thin film. The nose is pretty light, a little dry husky malt, light rye, light caramel, and just a hint of smoke. The flavor is pretty similar, light and thin with caramel and dry malt up front. Finishes with just a bit of spice from the rye and the littlest amount of smoke. Light bodied, fairly watery in texture, light fizzy carbonation. Ok beer I suppose, though the smoke is barely perceptible.

Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a quarter inch of whitish foam. Slight malt note on the nose. Not getting much rye on the tongue and only a little but of smokiness. Finches clean. Eh!
