4.03/5 rDev +6.1%
A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fairly quickly fizzles down to small bubbles
S: Nice and smokey. Campfire, bacon, smoked meat, and some saltiness are all present. Light bread present behind the wall of smoke
T: Starts off with a good deal of smokiness that slowly fades off to reveal a nice bready maltiness. Finishes with a very light bitterness from the hops and a lingering smoke presence
M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A nicely executed American-brewed rauchbier that provides plenty of smoke in the nose while not being completely one-dimensional in the taste. Easy to quaff and drink lots of. Track some down if you're a fan of smoked beers

3.95/5 rDev +3.9%
500ml bottle into SA perfect pint. Thanks AutumBeerLove!
A: Pours a fairly clear chalky lemon color with a finger of bright white head that slowly faded into a faint collar.
S: Smoke scent dominates and is savory and meaty. I get a blend of forest fire and grilled bacon. Smells delicious.
T: More smoke on the palate with flavors reminiscent of smoked ham and camp fire. Some bready malt pokes through the finish, and there is a vague sweetness and maybe some citrus in the still smoky aftertaste. Slight mineral quality.
M: Clean mouthfeel, tight fizzy carbonation that is soft and smooth, with a medium-full body that is viscous but not heavy.
O: Really well balance and easy to drink. Smoke dominates and is deliciously flavored. Thanks again, Kevin.

Poured into a SA perfect pint.
Appearance - outstanding clarity with a nice golden color. Pretty dense, not very tall head, lingered a while, laced just a little bit.
Smell was outstanding. Not so much the campfire/woodsy, more liked a ham being nicely smoked. Suggests sweetness and succulence - not that you will be licking an ashtray. Very understated, slight hop notes, vaguely fruity, a little floral or herbal (?)
The taste follows in kind. Very balanced, not overwhelming on the smoke. First taste, my wife and I both said "bacon" but it isn't quite that strong. Light smoke but more than enough to gain attention. The hops are more of the floral type, slight bitternes on the finish, all riding along on the pale malt. Slight sweetness. It was medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall this is a very, very good beer with a nicely balanced flavor. Winner.
