Bottled on November 13, 2017. As a blind tasting.
Cloudy to murky golden color, off-white head. Hoppy, alcohol, higher alcohols or solvents, harsh, grapefruit, zest scent. Fruity, citrus, alcohol taste. Medium mouthfeel though with some cloying yeast feeling to it, high bitterness.

Butelka 0,33l. Aromat chmielowy, do tego delikatne nuty wędzone. W smaku więcej wędzonki. Nieco zalegająca goryczka.

Muggus69 (2728) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 04.11.17 Properly hazy, almost orange-straw body, creamy head holds. Good whiff of smoke on the nose - bacony, camp fire, orange rind sort of hop character there, sort of a rich pale caramel malt note in the works. Thick palate, chewy, full, touch of warmth, lowish carbonation. BOOM stacks of smoke on the body - meaty, salami/small goods, charcoal, orange & mango hop character is strangely complimentary, low sort of bitterness, sort of spicy on the finish, pepper, smoke lingers for a long time! Woah, yeah, full on! Really different, kind of works, kind of doesn't, never dull!
