4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a nice color, and head, witha full body. At first smell the beer was really strange. and after the first taste, it gor even more strange. but by the bottom of the pint I was loving it. the beer has a very strong smoky aroma and flavor. It is very close to the Great Lakes Burning River, but like they brewed it at a camp fire. Once I got used to the smoky flavor, I really really liked it, and wanted another one. But I never leave the brewpub without drinking at least one Burning River.

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.

Had a glass as part of a sampler at Reverend in BG. Interesting, slightly smoky, not super hoppy.

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.

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

had on tap at the brew pub. my first smoked beer. nice smoky/sweet aroma. not much smoke in the flavor but after you swallow, BAM, there it is. great lingering smoky taste, tasted like i was sitting around a campfire. if you see this on tap, its definitely worth a go.

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.

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.

Draft from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours clear dark straw with off-white head. Nose is rauchy pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes crisp with a well balanced smoky flavor paired with a nice hopcitrus and pale malt backbone. This one is smooth and flavorful, with a clean finish. The crew at Craft Ale House enjoyed this one, as did the King of Crambone.
