look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own home. From a 22-oz bomber to a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber with a little head.

Smell: Smoky charcoal.

Taste: A little malty and an interesting smokiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to late bodied.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink. I would definitely consider this a session beer. This was my first smoke ale, and I really enjoyed it.

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
