Very faint smoke with a nice sweet malty balance. Still not for me and had a bit of a wierd peet grass taste with the smoke.

Tap at brewpub. I kinda liked this one quite a bit- Pours a nice slightly hazy woody amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is nicely smokey- toasted malts, light woody campfire smoke with a phenolic kick- lots of clean Munich malt toast and sweetness with an earthy spicy finish. Real smooth.

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
On tap, at brewery. Pours a nice dark ruby amber with a one finger creamy beige head. Light toffee and cereal grains with a very light undertone of smoked malt. The smoke is more pronounced on the flavor, nice campfire quality to it, a good bit of slightly sweet toasty malt, very smooth and drinkable. Light lingering hoppiness. Mouthfeel is just perfect, smooth and soft with great minimal carbonation. On the sweeter side, but not cloying or sticky at all. A really nice easy drinking Amber, I would have liked more smoke, but then again, I almost always say that.

Tap. Aroma of beef jerky, spiced, smoked meats, very nice. flavor blends the smoky notes with juicy caramel malt. Light bodied, easy to drink. Nice stuff.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours an opaque-ish dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of smoked firewood (faint) and sweet amber malt. Flavor of charred smoked meats. Not too smoked, just right, and not too oppressive either. Light-bodied.

Draft at the brewpub. Light mahogany color. Aroma of smoked malt, caramel and nuts. Mostly dry taste. A very nice seasonal.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Poured a dark amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked meat, nuts, caramel malts, and wood. Taste of sweeter caramel malts, nuts, charred wood, and nuts... quite meaty though overall.

On tap. I usually stay away from smoked beers but this one was good. Poured a medium to dark reddish brown with a small off white head. Tasted like a nice amber ale then the subtle smokey smell and taste (not over powering) came through.
