UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 This beer is only available on tap at Blue Smoke, a barbecue restaurant. Clear amber brown color with a nice lacing on top. Toasted malty caramel sweet taste with a nice bitter hops, slightly dry finish in the back of the mouth but ends with a nice floral high note coming from the hops. Complex flavors that went quite well with the meat and their sweet and spicy bbq sauce. I would recommend to have it with the ribs.

Drought at Blue Smoke. Rich yellow with off-white small foamy head, little malt aroma, low carbonation, slightly spicy taste, medium finish. Not bad for a blend. mfp13jr (152) - Glenville, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2014
On tap at blue smoke.... of course. Comes bready brown bodied with a smooth whitish head. Taste follows the nose with light bread and a bit of light grass. If this is a blend... I am guessing half brooklyn lager and half esb. Not very esb ish though. A tad lighter than the lager, with a bit more bitter finish.

clear brown copper pour with healthy half inch of bite head. Aroma is creamy, metallic euro hops, and faint florals. Lively carbonation, viscous oily mouthfeel, yeasty finish that leaves the teeth dry. Taste has sour lager yeast, slightly Belgian/ wheaty, light lemon, some floral hops. Crisp well rounded beer a little on the wheaty side.

On tap at Blue Smoke JFK Airport. It is good to see an airport with so many bars carrying good quality craft beer. Last beer in the US before getting on the plane home. BrewBoxer (2636) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
