On-tap at FFF

A - Copper orange with one finger white foam head with white foam. The beer is clean and slightly reflective. Leaves nice lacing as it goes down

S - Soft floral nose with slight sweet citrus like clementines

T - Light honey sweetness, sweet orange and tangerine upfront. As the beer goes on, there is bitter orange peel and an elderflower floral presence, which increases near the end. It also remains in the finish

MF - Light body with good carbonation. There is also a slight syrupiness to it as well

O - A really light and sweet pale ale which is a bit different from the normal FFF lineup. More floral and sweet than I'm used to from them. Easy drinking but nothing special

I shall take responsibilty for being the first full review on this one...
Hopefully people don't see this and allow it to skew their viewpoint.

Anyway... $5 for an imperial pint... I'll be honest, I could have done with a little taster glass of this guy.

Orangey golden amber body with a 1.5 finger head. Rather weak lacing for an FFF pale ale. The retention is only slightly better.

Smells... Well... This is a first-- smoked malt in a pale ale? I figured I was losing my mind upon first smell (an taste!) because I can say with a fair amount of certainty that I've never encountered a pale ale with smoked malt... And yet, I now feel I need to amend that statement.

The 58 IBUs are completely lost here. The finish holds only the mildest of bitterness, instead I get a chalky sweetness with a slightly acrid malt note. I will flat out state: I am not really digging this one.

A dank earthy character underlies the floral, grass, and spicy hop notes.
As it warms I grow less certain that smoked malt was used, but more certain that I don't really like this beer. It isn't entirely terrible, and not terrible in its entirety, but it is not one I have interest in finishing, let alone drinking again.

Overall-- no thanks.

Edit-- perhaps no smoked malt was used, but then this beer was too balanced, not hoppy enough, and very earthy (like dirty) tasting. Oh well-- smoked or not, I still say no thanks.
