Brewed to commemorate the smoking ban in public places in England from 01/07/2007. This golden ale has been infused with a puff of Weyermann smoked malt giving just a hint of smokiness. Spiced with Bramling Cross and Goldings hops from Kent, a hint of blackcurrant and zesty hop flavours suffuse this refreshing beer. As the old song goes...smoke gets in your beer!

Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Gold with lasting white head. Certainly has got smokey malt. Comes through on the aroma like a rauchbier. Weirdly it’s a classic golden ale beneath it. The hop is more muted, some tingle, but good dryness. I would expect the smoke to overpower the rest, but curiously it works.
