3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kihoskh.
Pours hazy amber with a fluffy white head.
Malt dominates the aroma, some smoke and hoppy pine notes.
Taste is citrusy, malty, hoppy and a bit smoky. Crisp!
Dry and bitter ending.
A little more smoked malt would not hurt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy dull golden yellow with a large creamy white head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma is smoked malts(fairly reserved and not overpowering), graham cracker, and light floral nits underneath. Flavour is smoked malts, spicy noble hops, grainy, low-medium bitterness, and a crisp medium dry finish. This beer is really well balanced especially seeing as it would be really easy to over do it with smoked malts in a lighter beer like a pilsner. I don’t find the smoke to be all that strong but put into a pilsner it wouldn’t take much to make it the dominant characteristic, I love smoked beers and this is a nice touch to a style I often pass on.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury drunk at home listening to Jesus Jones. Hazy orange gold colour with a thick lasting ivory head. Some smoke on the aroma. Yes really quite smoky but in a good way. I like it. Stupidly drinkable. The smoke is quite light, more like a smoked cheese. The base beer is fine. Aye nay bad. Some bite on the finish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce North. I am not a big fan of smoked beers, but I had to give thus a try. The aroma is strong with peat, some slightly sweet pilsner malts. The flavor is peaty smoked malt, crisp lager yeast character, slight apply fruit note. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Nice grains, noble hops and mellow smoke. Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Smoke really comes out front with some slight grains to follow. There is a mellow bitterness but all in balance. I really like smoked beers and this one doesn’t disappoint and is surprisingly refreshing.

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Palate is crisp. Minerals. A little tangy orange citrus well integrated with the smoke, which is obvious but not overpowering. Creamy malt underneath. The dry finish provides a carbonated bite. Works quite well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Johns Grocery. Pours lights brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Pretty big smoked meat notes on the nose. It’s kind of thin on the tongue. Finishes clean. Kind of boring but better than most.
