3.83/5  rDev +39.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Gold with millions of suspended particles, a fading head.

Smell: Light smoky smell.

Taste: Starts with a generic lager breadiness, but then transitions into a nice smoked flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light, with lasting smokiness.

Drinkability: Easy to drink, maybe even one to give to the macro drinkers.

I picked this up without reading any reviews. After I brought it home I checked the site and thought "This is not going to be good." However, I was pleasantly surprised, it's no Alaskan Smoked Porter or anything, but I definitely got a nice smoked taste out of it that is not overbearing but definitely present. I don't know if I got one of the good bottles and everyone else got bad ones, but I'd definitely have this again.

a: pours a pale copper color with about a half inch of beige head that dissapears rather quickly leaving very little lacing towards the center of the glass
s: bready/earthy (maybe a little honey aroma) malts dominate the aroma with hints of smokiness
t: nice malty bready aroma, hints of smokiness and light hop presence that balances this out
m: medium bodied beer with almost a creamy feeling, little carbonation

overall, i enjoyed this beer but i dont think that its vikings best
