Bottle at Craig’s house.
Appearance - bright amber with a big frothy head.
Nose - like a ripe tropical fruit that has been barbecued.
Taste - tangy smoky and sweet. Not sure what it tastes of.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy yet smoky texture and a long dry smoky finish.
Overall - unlike my peers, I think this is decent.

Bottle @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of Benzai. Thanks Rene! Appears cloudy honey color with off-white head. The smell is mild peaty smoke. The taste is the peaty smoke, touch go carmel with a dry finish. Light+ body with active carbonation. This one is just OK in my book.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very high carbonation, really overshadowing the original taste. Aromas of wood smoke, a little soury. Tastes of leather, some sweetness, lots of carbonation. Wouldn’t bother to pick this up again.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours hazy orange in color with an off-white head. Fruity notes, some smoky ham as well. Smoky ham in taste, burnt rubber too and the before mentioned fruityness. Otherwise good but the fruity sweetness is a bit disturbing here.
