On tap at Rogue brewpub in Eugene, poured into a pint glass.

A-Pours a dark golden amber, slightly opaque. Has a very thin top of off white head, visible lacing.

S-Smoked oak, caramel malt.

T-Sweet caramel malt, campfire smoke, slight hoppy bitterness. There's even the smallest hint of sour granny smith apple.

M-Light medium body, very light carbonation.

O-Pleasant smoke ale with light balance. The smoke flavor isn't overwhelming and I'd prefer more of it also more carbonation.
