2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
trans gold, thin white head. Nose is oddly conflicted, estery bubblegum and stale smoke, almost elephant stall. Flavor is more singularly smokey, light lemon, more focused as a result. Thin body accents murky smoke.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy of mdfb79, thanks! Extra light fizzy yellow. Aroma vaguely reminiscent of formaldehyde. Taste is bitter white pepper. Strange.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL thanks to mdfb79. Pours clear golden with a short-lived, white head. No retention or lace. Nose is plastic with odd smoked malt creating a muted burnt plastic note. Taste is oily, smoky, quite rich for what I was expecting. Mild barbecue character. I actually don’t mind this. Weird stuff. Maybe they are toying with smoked malt or maybe something very strange is going on.
