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.”

Excellent. I’m not big on smoked beers but this one is light and gets the balance close to my liking.

Not as smokey as I expected but seems to be a good example of a German alt beer. Great smokey aroma. Medium bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours golden amber with a white head. Sweet and lightly smoked malts, low bitterness, toffee, and a moderate smoked malty finish. Not bad.

tmoreau (2935) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey amber hue, with a presentable layer of off white head foam that gradually reduced to a creamy film and thick ring, leaving spots & streaks of lacing on the glass. The nose was malt & light grain, a touch of caramel, leather, and smoke. Light to medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, but a bit washed out texture-wise.

Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Pours a mildly hazy amber color with a small one finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is meaty smokiness but not overpowering. The taste does have the meat smokiness to it but there is some subtle sweet notes hidden in there as well. You also pick up some woodiness which is quite common with this style.

16 oz. can. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, with extensive lacing, over an amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is light smoke, malts, minimal hops....taste is smoke, light hidden malts, slight sweetness, finishing with minimal hop bitterness.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, low carbonation. This is a mildly smoked beer, relatively low in malt complexity. It is a light smoked, not an Alt. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6
