On tap at Deep Ellum in Allston.
Presented in a tall, handled stange. Clear pale gold with a substantial white head that had decent staying power for the style.
A bacon-like smokiness in the nose blended with an otherwise typical lager combination of grassiness, tartness and bitterness.
Taste was very similar -- grassy with a bitter tinge, but with a smoked pork essence at the front and back end. Fairly clean in the middle.
Nice crisp mouthfeel, especially considering that it was coming from a tap.
Drinkability is slightly above average -- at 4.30, you can put away a bunch of these. But the novelty of the smoke gets a little old. Also a little nagging, since they're not going all out like a rauchbier.
Serving type: on-tap
