3.58/5 rDev 0%
Served in a Three Floyds XV Anniversary tulip pint glass at Fountainhead.
I just had to try this, a new smoked beer from the Floyds. Had to. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises wheat and light hickory smoke. The taste holds notes of hickory smoke, lightly funky wheat, and light sourdough. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice little smoked beer, but not much going on with it. The smoke is nicely balanced, though.

On-tap at Big Star. Served in a pint/pils glass hybrid.
A - Transparent golden body is topped by a white foam that settles to wisps, a collar, and a few fingers of lacing. Solid retention and good clarity.
S - Intensely smoked, with hickory, campfire, and charcoal grill. There's a light malt sweetness, as well as some yeasty bread supporting things.
T - The taste is quite similar; intense notes of smoke, hickory, toasted bread, a touch of fruity sweetness, and some honey-glazed ham.
M - Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth and very easy to drink, without excessive mouth-coating smoke like some beers of this ilk.
D - A very well-made smoked lager. If you're into Schlenkerla Helles check this one out, as it's in a similar vein. I also appreciated the $4 price point. Could easily consume a few glasses of this one in an evening without excessive palate fatigue.

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.

Enjoyed at the brewpub
Pours a clear straw/golden color with a finger of white head. Moderate lacing
The nose has some smokiness to it that isn't overbearing like a lot of smoked beers. There is some sweet malt noticed once I give it a big whiff. Hidden ABV.
The flavors of this beer make me want to drink it around a campfire. There is an actually tasty smoke flavor that is easy on the palate. Mild sweet fruits lie in the background.
The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall, one of the better smoked beers I have had.
