Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2012
In short: A moderately smoky and sweet blond beer with wheat/banana flavors. Nice.
How: Growler shared at Camping Brewdown 2012
The look: Clear light-blond body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is moderately smoky and banana cake. Taste has a strong wheaty sensation (although the base beer is supposedly not a wheat-beer), toasted straw, banana cake, light-medium smoke presence, honey, light notes of caramel. No hops presence, a bit sweet in the finish. This is not the type of beer I like to feel sweet, could have been excellent if more attenuated or more hoppy. Last rating of the first night of Camping Brewdown 2012, where I realized something about myself, I could really be a morning person if I wasn’t such a drink-all-night person.

Draft. Golden pour with white lacing. Peat, smoke and bacon like aromas. Flavor is overly smoky, but still somehow maintains kolsch like attributes, light in body, low abv, but I don’t desire a large glass of it.

DiarmaidBHK (4241) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head that leaves a little lacing. There is a faint but insistent smokiness on the nose. Very smooth drinker with a slight hint of oiliness on the tongue. The smokiness comes back in the finish. It’s really a smoked Kolsch which is an improvement on the style as far as I’m concerned.
