This lager poured a deep amber colour with a off white, foamy head. To the nose there are scents of malt, smoke and plastic. First taste is crisp and smooth. Almost watery on the tongue. Smoke and malt flavours most prodominant. Finish is smokey with almost like a plasctic flavour lingering.

Aw yea, another great smokey beer from FCB. This time the smokiness is much more evident in the aroma. Still huge smoke in the taste, backed up by a solid body. Looks like a regular copper colored lager, but this is way better.

The Smokiní Lager poured a cloudy copper-red with a lot of tiny floating particulates. It had a huge light tan head the had great retention.

Itís aroma was caramel malt and smokiness.

It had a big sweet, caramel malt backbone with some smokiness on top and a smoky aftertaste. There was not as much smokiness as I was expecting, I think the Double Z was more pronounced from what I remember. It did have a nice balance between the sweet and smoke. It was a little on the thin side.

Overall, this was similar to a lot of FCBís offerings (sweet and smoky and a little thin).
