Poured on tap into a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.

A bright white head is presented, fairly small, with a slightly opaque and solid lemon body color. Creamy thin puck and collar as the beer sits and rests.

Slightly closed aroma, only really opens up with more sips. Slight hints of smoked wood, not much else.

Palate though on first sip just explodes nicely. Soft bodied malt, with minimal mix of chewy quality and light crispness. Big crackling toast finish and white bread with matchin smokey aromas. No off putting phenolic aromas or band aid off putting senses. Small hints of tobacco and even a little bit of sugar and salt on the finish together. Palate is minimal on the carbonation giving the malts some depth, just soft enough, but misses just the hint of bakery bread action on a classic pils.

I love smoked beer and this one is a real surprise, it at first seems very ordinary but the first taste hits like it was a beer brewed on the other side of the pond. The brewer absolutely nailed this one. and at 4.7% abv, I could see myself drink a lot of this in the possible future.

Adventurous style: A pale rauchbier. This looks like any other Belgian, but things get interesting when you bring it to your lips. Big campfire nose. The light body can't quite stand up to the four-alarm smoke. Needs more of a malt backbone to firm this one up and give it some ballast. Props for creativity though.
