3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with a solid 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Aroma of straight up smoke with just a hint of toffee. Taste is lightly sweet and very lightly bitter. huge smokey flavors with a little caramel in the finish. Light bodied with a slick texture. Super fizzy carbonation but a ridiculously long and smokey finish. Very good overall, wondering if the fizzy is due to being an old bottle? Don’t see a date on there anywhere so I guess I’ll never know.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty aroma with a bit of resin from hops. Sweet notes in the background - almost honey. Smoked aroma on the edge of autosuggestion. Pours slightly hazy, light gold with rich head, that very quickly disappears. leaves a thin layer on top. Taste is bittersweet (medium bitterness, medium sweetness - mostly from aroma). Extremely drinkable - this beer is addicting. The only thing that disappoints me is lack of smoke in there - I expected a bit more.

On tap @ 10 East -
This satisfied my constant craving for a good/great smoked beer, and to be a pilsner base really allowed the smoke to dominate. It wasn’t as smokey or complex as Aecht Schlenkerla, but...well...who is. Plenty smokey, some soft caramel notes on the palate with a clean, smokey finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate smoke meat, pilsner malt, faint lemon, florals, and grass. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker soapy ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light honey and pilsner malt. The finish has light-moderate smoked meat, light apple, faint lemon, florals, and hints of grass. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, this is much better than I expected...a really solid smoked beer.
