radagast83 (5300) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

Like most smokey lagers, it’s not super drinkable, but still ok. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Charcoal meat kind of taste, some caramel. Tap at Snallygaster.

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.
