22 oz bottle from the good man nearbeer, who I met up with on a family trip to Knoxville. 22 oz bottle poured into a Green Flash tulip. Cloudy brass yellow with effervescent white head. Head disappears to nothing, but quickly comes back with a bit of swirling. Nose is tart mid citrus sweetness. Lots of flavors moving around on this one. Bit of tart, saltiness, vinegar bite, smoke. My wife says "Tastes like meat!" Thanks for a great bottle to bring back from an adventure.

SarkyNorthener (3086) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Sarkynorthener 3k Yorkshire day tasting. Bottle shared thanks to Richthevillan, cheers Rich. Hazy golden orange beer with small head. Aroma of smoked ham, wood and cheese rind. Taste is smoked ham, cheese, citrus, yeast and salty. A beer to experience rather than drink. A complete mish mash on the palate. Loved it.

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Small coarseish white head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque yellow body. Smoky lemony aroma with mealy yuzu notes. Acidic, verging on sour, smoky herbal lemony taste with yuzu notes. Mid-to-thin body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Acidic mealy smoky aftertaste with lemony notes. It’s fairly simple and straightforward, but I like it. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)
