Aroma is heavy smoked mackerel. Head is almost non-existant. Taste is salty smoked fish, sweet lager maltiness and a mellow smooth finish which does not last long. This is an interesting style, very smokey and salty reminiscent of smoked fish. Goes well with smoked fish, unsurprisingly.

Sjohnh (287) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Subtle, clever, interesting. The smoke takes the lead but isn’t overpowering. Then some malt sweetness, meatiness, peppery spice and hints of peaty malt whisky. Nice copper brown body, little head or lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation.
