Sample from tap, CBC 2012. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with a tan head. Smoked aroma with ham and light caramel malts to add sweetness. Notes of dark fruits, rye and spicy hops. Taste is lightly sweet and smokey. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes long lasting with a very light, spicy bitterness and bready caramel malts. A pretty good smoker and you got to love the ham flavour!
