COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gather ‘round all ye young ‘uns, all ye boozers and freaks, let me tell you the story of one Scruffy McGee. T’was an alt-brewin’ fella, a real sun of a gun, but he whips up the finest alts under the sun. Smoked to perfection, a real powerful blend. S’what made his name a Cedar Creek legend. But drink this in scruples, ye lads and ye lasses, or, like Scruffy, you’ll fall down drunk, right on your asses.”

Not a fan. Nice smoke flavor with lingering sweetness, but it gives way to a chemically bitterness.

jhamp9 (1138) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Hazy dark copper pour with nice off white head. Aroma is light smoke, caramel, spicy and grassy hops. Taste follows the nose with caramel being more prominent than the hops. Subtle smoky flavor. Pretty good stuff.

SPDickerman (991) - Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours clear copper orange with a small off-white head. Smells smokey and a little fruity. Taste is smoke, hints of caramel, a touch of fruit. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Cedar Creek Scruffy’s Smoked Alt finishes with a soft smoked, burnt sugar flavor.

Bittle. Clear deep maroon color, medium off tan head. Aroma of charred meat. Taste is malty sweet with an edge of smoke.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy brown-gold with a high, pillowy, lacy off-white head. Nose is smoke, lemon, and bready notes -- there’s a little light rye in there, too. Sweet and smoky up front; the smoke has both a savory and an ashy note to it. There’s a definite charcuterie or barbecue thing going on, along with bitterness further back on the tongue. Finish turns completely dry and ashy with a terse smokiness to it, though there’s a faint malty echo. Interesting.

Modularman (132) - - JUL 12, 2014
Smell of nice smoke. Appearance is brown with thin off white head. Taste is smoke grain which finishes too quick, I wish it had a little more but pretty solid for a smoked style.

Beergeek23322 (2481) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2014
5/30/2014. 16 oz can. Copper color with an offwhite head. Malty aromas with caramel, light fruit and hints of bacon/smoke. Sweet malty flavors with smoke really picking up on the finish. Nice balance and not too overwhelming.

TXBadger (1567) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Had on draft. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Smoke, bread, and a little malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a very smoky note that lingers.
