Bottle shared at The Full Pint 6th Anniversary Celebration held at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Blend 1. Bottled 2/2013.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, smoke, herb, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with sour smoke and botanical flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of interesting aromas and flavors that are quite unique.
