Pours clear and amber into my Stone IPA tulip glass. Zero lacing.
Sour smoke with a hint of malty sweetness on the nose.
This honestly tastes like a salty smoked almond. Could use a little more malt backbone to support the smoke.
Aside from the sour smoke that lingers, i'd rate the mouthfeel as light-medium.
Overall, this is a slightly above offering from BBC. It was interesting to taste, but I think I'd reach for a Schlenkerla if I wanted a rauchbier.
