Had this on-tap at Three Floyds on Christmas Eve.
A: Pretty much crystal clear orange, with about a 1/4 finger head that stuck around for a bit.
S: Sure, I got some bacon grease, but overall, this wasn't too potent. I could literally smell the hops, grains, and barley poking through also, which was a good thing.
T: Bitter bacon and sausage aftertaste, but not nearly as intense as "Ham on Rye."Still, this was quite yeasty, with a very tasty, voluptuous quality. The smoke didn't dominate at all.
M: This was a fairly clean beer on the palate, highly drinkable, and with substantial lacing.
O: The bartender and I had a brief discussion about our aversions to smoked beers. He told me beforehand that this particular one was one of the only ones that he actually likes. Since I had just had the Rogue Voodoo Donut the night before, I totally wasn't in the mood for this. However, I'm glad I let the bartender talk me into it.

Had on tap in a pint glass, poured an absolutely clear yellow with a very white head. Light lacing. Smell was a little off putting to be honest, great smoke smell as well notes of bacon and maple. Couldn't smell the beer through the smokiness but I would attribute that to the fact it is a lager. Taste felt unrefined but palatable, not my cup of beer to be honest. I've had a smoked stout before and I enjoyed it quite a bit but a smoked lager just doesn't have the body to cut through the bacon/smoked peat flavor. Taste was overwhelmingly bacon grease and peat. Probably a good beer for fans of the style but I would take the pass if I saw this on tap again.
