On-tap at Bootlegger's

The pour is golden in color, which is a tad unusual for a smoked beer. Not really much going on here other than the smoke. Maybe a touch of bread and honey? The flavor is pretty much the same. A touch of salt, light bread, and mostly just smoke. The smoke is not a terribly intense flavor, it’s just the only real flavor there.

On tap at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton, CA.

Pours a clear orange-yellow with an orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form all around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of smoked malt, adhesive bandages, and some slight campfire aromas. Taste is the same but the smoke is pretty light and subtle in the flavor. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good smoked beer but it seems a bit mild in the smoke aspect.
