3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma was some light hops, with a touch of light smoke - not a whole lot on the nose, nice malt character though. Flavor is a bit more noticable, the smoke comes out a bit like a light smoky meat, with some sweet malts and a touch of earthy hops in here.

Tap at red cow downtown in snifter with commonmac. Really nice hazy orange color with thick white to off white head. Smells of citrus with an underlying smokiness. Smoke is evident in taste but not too overwhelming. Definitely there though .otherwise a nice balance of alcohol sweet and citrus hop. Pretty good and definitely unique. Doesn’t make me grouchy.

Tap at a red cow event. Light Amber color. Nose is light smoke w some fruityness. Taste has lots of orange peel, spices and a nice touch of smoke that doesn’t go unnoticed but definitini doesn’t over power or kill the palate like some smoked beers. Tastes a bit like christmas

Sample at Daily Growler. Clear copper color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of smoked malt, hops and pine. Medium to full body with flavors of smoky malt, tropical fruits and resiny hops. The finish is citrusy with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale enough golden brown. Smells like diluted fuel, maltish. Steely, oddly fruity booze - stewed and not enjoyably bitter. Not enjoyable by much at all by the finish, tips too much booze and an oily mouthfeel into things.

Bottled at Taylors & Jones with the Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, small head. Weird combination of of smoke and citrusy hop up front. Turbs out lie cardboard. Mid sweet with full body and clean, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Light smoke, some old grapefruit peels. Quite bitter finish. Dull.
