Cloudy orange with a thin but solid head, smells like caramelized breakfast ham, malt and hickory.
Taste is mostly malty with a fairly sharp hoppy aftertaste. Clingly mouthfeel, feels like you're inhaling incense or standing over the charcoal grille while drinking it. Pretty light body and mild smokiness make this a nice beer, I imagine this would go great with pork ribs. Maybe not the best smoked beer but a good effort by an American brewery to mimic this German style.

On tap at Rogue brewpub in Eugene, poured into a pint glass.
A-Pours a dark golden amber, slightly opaque. Has a very thin top of off white head, visible lacing.
S-Smoked oak, caramel malt.
T-Sweet caramel malt, campfire smoke, slight hoppy bitterness. There's even the smallest hint of sour granny smith apple.
M-Light medium body, very light carbonation.
O-Pleasant smoke ale with light balance. The smoke flavor isn't overwhelming and I'd prefer more of it also more carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap
