3.55/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pretty rust/amber color with a full white head that settles into clumps.
S: Bready-yeast background is there, and the hops are noticeable as well. Faint smokeyness. Nothing about the aroma is particularly strong or distinctive. Malt becomes more apparent with warming.
T: smoked jalapeno flavors enhance the basic amber ale malt flavor nicely. Smooth transition from smoke and pepper to sweet malt.
M: a little thin feeling as you would expect, and carbonated about right. Pepper and alcohol work together to give the mouth a little zing.
D: I enjoyed the first 12oz. but after that, my tastebuds really didn't get much deeper than the smokey flavors. I appreciate this as something different and would drink it again, but it will not be often. This is a beer that would really benefit from the right food pairing.
