3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An amber-orange coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A strong hop nose, with a mild smokey aroma that brings forward the rye cereal element. Medium dry mouthfeel. A smooth yet zesty hop flavour, grassy and a touch citrusy, balanced out by a biscuity, bready cereal flavour of rye and malt, this is followed by a mild smokiness, understated but bolstering the other flavours. The smokey taste is more noticeable in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. BBE 03/14. Pours an orange amber with a medium-sized, beige head. Aroma is smoke and tar, smoked ham, light citrus. The smoked malt really dominates. Considering that, the taste is a huge surprise. Hops are the big thing here. Fruity with grapefruit and citrus. light pine and rye. Some smoke in the background and in the aftertaste, but it really isn’t as strong as in the aroma. Light with quite a bit of carbonation. Goes will with a fish-tomato soup.
