To be honest, the smokiness is a little overwhelming and becomes tiring after just a few sips. Despite that, I did enjoy the playoff between smoke and hops, they handled that well, and it’s certainly more interesting than your average smoked ale.

På fat. Bärnstensfärgad med givmilt vitt skum. Persika, gräs och svag rökighet i doften. Desto bättre av det mesta i smaken, där rökigheten får större plats, liksom en tropisk fruktighet. Ett rätt besynnerligt öl, men jag gillade det. Fint avvägd beska.

At Snallygaster. More and more we’re seeing beers that don’t precisely fit Ratebeer’s style categories. This is none of those. Both light smoke and hops come through in equal measure. Clever, exceptional beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Sam’s Blue Light. Pours a slightly hazy straw orange with a steady white head. Nose is smokey, tobacco, light citrus, grassy hops. Flavor is a bit disjointed for me with the smoke cutting into the hops and it just doesn’t harmonize all that well. An fun beer to try though.

Draft. Cloudy golden yellow color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of smouldering fruit and bread dough. Taste is full bodied candied fruit with a burned edge. Very nice.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange copper.
Aroma: Aroma is of faint smoke.
Taste: Medium bitterness, some malt balance, some smoke.
Palate: Medium body, quick finish.
Summary: A really enjoyable APA with some smoke undertones, my only fault with it is the aroma isn’t very strong.
