Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange copper.
Aroma: Aroma is of faint smoke.
Taste: Medium bitterness, some malt balance, some smoke.

Very tasty but extremely dry. This is a one and done beer but a must try.

from a growler courtesy of Jill, this is a smoke ale rather than an APA in my opinion, the strong taste of smoked ham (with the brown sugar) really works here, if you’re expecting it... no real hop presences here to me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Sugar Maple. Orange-brown, unfiltered. Smoky, but relatively balanced. Medium bodied, well executed. Mild hop balance. The smoke shines, but it remains drinkable. Well done, true to style despite the obvious differences.

Cask at the brewpub. Orange pour with a white head. Smokey, ham, and some biscuity malt to go along with soft hop presence. Good stuff.

Good spicy flavor with smooth finish. Drank on cask. Aftertaste of pepper gives a nice finish. Good orange cloudy color and right amount of bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewpub pours brownish orange with just a little white head. Smells of smoke, ham and some grainy bread. Taste smoke, bacon, ham, grain and a nice citrus hop profile. Light to medium on the palate and it finishes with a great citrus hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Sugar Maple. The beer has a nice beechwood type smoked malt. Clean malt flavor. The palate leaves a dry smoky and lightly oily component. The aroma is pretty smoky. This beer needed to warm up quite a bit before showing it’s hand. Really reminds me of beer from Bamberg.
