First had: on tap at Victory

The more I go to Victory, the more I like their beer fresh and on tap from the source. This one really hit the spot, and paired great with my fish and chips.

Clearish medium amber pour into a 33cl glass, with a small white head that retained as a small ringlet. Biscuity malt aroma with a nice scent of a fresh burning campfire. A nice smoky malt flavor here that wasn't too potent or overdone, making this an easy-drinking rauchbier; lesser notes of toasted bread and maybe a faint whisper of leafy hops. It wasn't a full-blown smoked ham like some rauchbiers, but I think that's a good thing. I have to kind of be in the mood for a smoked beer, and even then, one is usually enough. This one was light and palatable enough for me to want to go back for more.
