3.5/5 rDev -11.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A- pours a hazy orange with a inch of eggshell colored head, some sticky lace.
S- the smell is mostly a grainy malt with a touch of smoked peat, a bit of orange and some hops.
t- the smoke is quite subtle, the hops are a bit restrained as well. What really comes through is a bready and lightly sweet and fruity flavor, which works nicely with the underlying peaty flavor. Mouthfeel is a little thin.
o- I love the concept behind this and I am really glad I could try it. The end result is a beer with some bright moments, but also a beer that is a little unfocused and doesn't really hit any huge flavors, as they are all a little bit muddled. Still, a fun and different beer.

Picked up a growler of this from the Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room in NYC.
A - This beer pours a nice orangish amber color. It has a little more than a finger of slightly off-white head resting on top. The head has pretty good retention, and it leave some scattered lace behind on the glass.
S - The nose has some nice toasted maltiness and and some smoked meat aromas. Also there are some floral notes, as well as some light hop aromas.
T - The taste follows the nose pretty well. It starts out with some toasted malt flavor and a nice amount of smoke. There is a nice hop presence on the back end that give some nice bitterness. The finish leaves some lingering hop bitterness and smoked meat flavors behind on the palate.
M - This has a medium body and good carbonation. It goes down easy and has a nice smooth feel to it. There is some initial sweetness and a nice smoke presence. Also, There is a nice amount of hop bitterness on the back end.
O - This has good drinkability. Overall, I think this is a good beer with a cool concept behind it. The amount of smoke was really nice, and the beer goes down quite easy. I recommend trying this out if you are a fan of rauchbiers or beers with smoked malt. I would buy again.
