On tap Belmont Station PDX 11.25.11.

Half a finger white head, clear light orangish amber body, a few streams of bubbles rising to surface, good lacing. Mild smoke aromas, a bit sweet balanced by floral hops, pretty subtle smoke-wise. The smoke comes through taste wise, beechwood predominates, fairly sweet, complex smokiness though no ashtray, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is medium decent effervescence. Along with Caldera Ur Bock, one of the PNW better smoked beers, though this is harder than hell to find. Worth a try.
