Cask at CBC, Clerkenwell on 7th June 2017. Reddish brown with shallow off-white foam and full lacing. Sour, pungent smoky aroma. Smoky in-mouth with savoury nuttiness - hazelnut/peanut. Lingering nutty and biscuit malts with mild woodsmoke in the finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a fair amount of body. martpez (282) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Nice malty taste and gently smoked. A decent change but nothing on the german smoked beers. They dont go far enough here. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017

Draft. Woody toffee malt and light hay aroma. Copper with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter tannin and dry oak flavor. Okay body. Decent - woody but no smokiness. Stuu666 (14596) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours amber, light smoky toffee nose, light smoke taste, dry, sweet toffee, thin. Martin243 (1214) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Clear tawny orange body, thick off white head. Mild burnt sugar and medicinal fruit aroma. Smoke flavour is subtle, more beech than oak. I enjoyed the mouth feel which was fuller than I expected. Very well balanced, smoke not over assertive which is no bad thing. I was impressed. maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Penderels Oak London 09/04/14. A reddy brown coloured beer with a tight white head. Berry fruity in the nose which follows through to the mouth where it meets the rather good smoked malts. It needs more body and more smoke to be honest but I do like it. wheresthepath (2374) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Deep amber with a moderate off-white head. Yes! Smokey from the off; nice bonfire night smoke rather than the weird pepperoni of your Schlenkerla’s. Lots of fruitiness behind too, I’m thinking homemade apple and rhubarb crumble eaten after a warming jacket potato cooked on a bonfire. Crisp autumn leaves too in the mildly dry finish, and a little chilli. This is Autumn in a glass. Shame it’s at a Spring beer festival, but loved it nevertheless. Yes!
