12 oz bottle into oversized wine glass

Pours a brown amber with a slightly off-white head which bubbles down quickly, leaving a ring clinging to the edge of glass. I wasn't so sure about including "bonfire" in the name but after a wiff and a taste I think it fits. Smells like wood smoke, on second wiff it smells more like cheap smoked meat, not off putting but not super appetizing. The smoke smell is found in the taste as well, it dominates a mild hop and medium malt body. Drinks well. Mild carbonation boils finely off of back of tongue, some of the smoke taste makes its way through my nose. Overall an interesting because I am not familiar in the style. As I find with Sam's this brew is OK but not full, it lacks robustness. Glad to have it as part of Sam's fall variety pack.
