3.85/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - The beer pours a copper/amber color with very little head.

S - A slight smell of smoke.

T - A nice, crisp, pale ale flavor with a finish of smoke.

M - Very lightly carbonated with a medium body.

D - A little plain at first, but the smoky aftertaste makes up for it. The beer goes down easy, especially when paired with a rich food, like barbecue.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap at Morris Tap and Grill. 11/22

Served on tap in glass. Pours darker amber, but still see through. Laced foam rings, and quite sticky. Light smoky malt flavor. Taste opens sweet and rolls into a woodsy fireplace flavor. Liquid smoke holds. good blend.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on-tap at Finnigan's Wake in Winston-Salem, NC

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation near the surface of the beer and some faint golden yellow + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of smokey malts with light hints of earthiness.

T: Moderate flavors of smokey malts with some lights hints of iodine. Light notes of earthiness. Light amounts of bitterness are present but do not linger for too long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and clean.

O: This beer is pretty easy to drink as the smokey flavors and aromas are not too strong as well as the alcohol being well hidden. Definitely enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap
