Growler at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours clear yellow with a light, white foam head. Definite smoke in the nose, some grass and white bread. Light sweet flavor with dry straw, biscuits, background smoke. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, more biscuity pale malts, lingering smoke, tasty stuff. Pretty novel and easily drinkable,

Growler… RBWG 2013… Clear yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma of smoked meat, sausage and grainy wheat. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is smoky, grainy and tilts toward the bitter side of balance. Lengthy, medium-bitter finish. Growler courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

Yellow pour, white head. Hops, smoke, lagerishness...odd right? Yeah. But actually quite tasty. Bonus points for recreating this style.

Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Winter Park, FL). Pours a nice yellow straw hue, faint haziness, a bit more pale and straw, grainy yellow hue. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a good film, laces pretty well. Aromas are mellow yet growing smoked bready malts, gentle meat, wood, and campfire meets bread, gentle grainy elements, some straw. Touches of earth, more mellow campfire really compliments well, a decent smokiness pulls me in. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch bitter and grainy up front. Bready, straw, some decent smoky bread, earth, and gentle woodiness. Mellow bready malts, straw, some bitterness and florals as we round the corner. A more dry finish, cereal and clean as far as sweetness. Lighter body with a pleasant smokiness still lingering, gentle campfire, smoked wood and grain, mellow meatiness. Quite pleasant, smaller maltbill but some good pleasant flavors, dry crisp finish, decent bitterness. Quite a solid sessioner.

Growler at RBWG Grand Tasting and on draft at Cask and Larder. This one was outstanding. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big earthy and somewhat bandaidy smoke with light wheat and bread with hints of sausage. Flavor follows with a huge smoky presence like kielbasa meets campfire followed by some light bread. Light in body and sessionable as hell. Outstanding beer.

Growler at rbwg, shared by cheesedman. I enjoy these smokey sours, but I am well aware they are not for everyone. Lots of lemon, smoke, light grassiness and biscuity malt. Another fun one from C&L. Look forward to visiting the brewery someday.
