3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in the basement. Beautiful chestnut body. Nice smoke, definitely meaty, but not in the smoked pork way, more like a slimy Christmas ham. Soft carbonation, medium body, gentle smoke and roast in the mouth, very moreish. Low bitterness, a bit yeasty, unusual for the style, which is normally lagered like crazy. Smoke is generally mild and about even with the simple malt profile.

Draught at the brewpub. Murky brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is toast, smokey bacon. Flavour is quite subtle to begin with, a creamy light caramel that grows more and more smokey leading to a long satisfying smoked bacon and toasted malt finish
