Built on a base of Pilsner malt for a bright golden color and smooth flavor, the judicious addition of two smoked malts take a simple lager and morph it into a smokey quencher. Smokiness swirls in the first sip, wrestling with the bready characteristics, and a hint of bitterness helps chase everything off the tongue.

Draught at Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle
Aroma is slightly sweet with apricot, peach and citron. Flavour has mild smoke notes, some ash and hints of citron. Smoke gets stronger towards the finish and becomes a bit sticky like Schlenkerla Urbock does. Good.

Tap: light tan body with a thin white head and a fruity-floral tea-like aroma. Flavor was much the same with a soft sweetness of floral tea, a little apricot and malt, with a light bitter finish. I could not find the smoke in this, I even had the waitress check if this was the right pour. Not a favorite, too odd of flavor and thin on body.

Draught. Fast dissipating head with clear tan body. Aroma is understated. Some smoke and some malt. Flavour rings out, smokiness is understated, but is definitely there, and increases as the beer warms. Good finish
