Very lively carbonation. This beer comes across almost as a smoked beer to me. The flavor is quite initially smoked the base beer seems to be a golden ale. Pretty enjoyab lower abv ale.

Cask draft to snifter. Subdued aroma of smokey herbs. No carbonation and no head. Looks like grapefruit juice. Tasted a bit of old tire, but it really grew on me as I sipped it. A very unique beer; I appreciated what the brewer did with it.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma if smoke with some farmhouse and hay notes with. Touch of citrus. Flavor is much the same with a nice wheaty profile coming through. Light, soft mouth feel with high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, I like it!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2012, hazy yellow orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of spice with clove, coriander, some lemon, smoked malts come in, hints of juniper, slight herbal note, pretty odd. Taste is a mix of sweet fruit, lemon, hints of smoked malts, touch of biscuit, bread, slight herbal and juniper coming in to give a pine-sol almost note, finishing kind of sweet and herbal. Didn’t quite work for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a moderate white head. Aroma is lightly smoked malt and bit of farmhouse yeast. Flavor is tart and vinous, with smoked malt, yeast, juniper, and some other notes I can’t quite identify. Pretty interesting, and more than "just" a smoked beer, but perhaps a bit harsh in a hard-to-define sense: it almost works for me but doesn’t quite hold together somehow. Nonetheless, it’s worth a try.
