3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Snallygaster 2014. Handed to me, with some hesitation, I took my first sip. This poured a yellow color with a medium sized slightly off-white head. I wanted to avoid this beer, it’s a smoked beer. Not my favorite style. However, this particular brew was a nice light lagered beer, with some very mild smoke notes that didn’t overpower it nearly as much as I expected. Like a light bbq or mild beef jerky. Decent.

Keg @ WF Charlottesville. Light golden amber color with a small white head. Smoked ham on the nose. Little else. A bit of burnt brown sugar. The taste is caramel-glazed ham. White bread. Crisp carbonation keeps it light and zippy. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At GABF. Huge aroma of birch-ish smoke. Taste is of sweet, peppery bacon. Not as intense as Aecht Sch, but closer than any USA rauchbier. Yum.
