3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with a light note of ashes/smoke.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Very simple aroma, and the smoke itself is rather ashy, but the balance is decent for quaffing. Just kinda seems like a checkbox for a smoked beer rather than something that a lot of thought and effort went into...uninspiring and plain, but certainly drinkable and free from flaws.

Muestra color amarillo medio algo turbio, media cabeza de espuma con escasa retención; en nariz se aprecian aromas a levadura, malta ahumada y pan, en boca entrada suave con amargor muy equilibrado, notas a galleta y ligeramente especiada; cuerpo y carbónico medios con pos gusto largo en una cerveza fácilmente bebible y bien balanceada , una grata sorpresa.
