Aromas of grains, smoke, sauerkraut, porridge.
Flavours of smoke, grains, herbs, smoked hops.
Aftertaste is a mix of smoke, grains, malts.
Low carbo, soft creamy texture, medium body and a creamy texture.
Bit dull and not much in both aroma and flavour but it’s quite easy to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light orange with moderate haze. Aroma of sweet malt almost like candy, grainy, hint of smoke. Smoke more prominent in flavor, not so sweet, offset by nondescript hops, a bit of horse blanket sourness blends well with the smoke. Solid mouth feel and light-moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer outside my normal hoppy world.

Very easy to drink, interesting, quite lovely. Nice stuff.
