Uggh...I've been impressed with all of Viking's stuff until this one...

Pours a decent hazy orange. Off-white head fades to a wisp, but stays around.
Just a little faint smoke on the nose (actually, a weird smokiness...not all that good).
Start off with minor smoke on the taste buds. Some grassy flavors here too. Switches to an odd citric sourness in the finish. Not good at all.
Soda-like body and carbonation do not help things.

Tastes like someone ashed a joint into a bottle of 7-up.
Stay away

When I open it, the noise lets me know this is gonna be way overcarbonated. Loud "Pffft" sound. I was right. On the pour, I get 3/4 worth of head and 1/4 worth of beer. Smells phenolic and a little sour. Just not right. Mouthfeel is very gassy. Not enjoyable at all. Taste is not as bad as everything else, but it's still below average. Sourness mixes with too many smoky phenols. This is drainpour.
