Enjoyed on tap at Wayfinder.

Poured in a dimpled mug! (Called a tubinger, apparently.) Mmmmm, smokey notes waft from this like a wistful memory of a long ago campfire. Heavy smoked note but incredibly smooth. Hints of bandaids. Crisp finish. Lovely beer.

Growler from the New Seasons in Cedar Hills.

A clear straw yellow with a large, white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks especially good. The nose is wonderful. Delicate smoke notes of wet oak smoke, a little honey, a light dough, a touch of Munich malt breadiness, this is quite excellent. The smoke is reserved, allowing the firm, earthy hop notes to complement the depth that the smoke adds. The palate opens soft and creamy with a blend of fresh, green, earthy hops, a little minty and lemony along with a firming smoke note. Wet oak, a little cherrywood, are present, before a soft dough-like sweetness with honey and light wheat bread take over on the mid-palate. Drying, clean and crisp on the finish, along with a clean bitterness, this beer is excellent. Alcohol is shockingly well hidden too.
