Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is an odd smokey medicinal blend. The taste is not good, it has some smoke to it, but the flavor reminds me of hospital antiseptic.

Amber color, smoky taste, light feel. Overall good, but nothing too special.

A: The beer is light amber in color, lots of bubbles.

S: Lots of Band-Aid, medicine aroma. Slight funky smoke aroma.

T: Just like the smell, the taste has lots of Band-Aid flavors and sourish smoke flavor.

M: Medium-bodied carbonation.

O: This beer is quite hard to drink. I feel like they were shooting for a german Rauchbier and didn't know what one was suppose to taste like.

Taste is sweet smoked malt and light caramel. Really tastes like a German rauchbier. Kind of comparable to a lighter smoked marzen. A really solid beer and a favorite in the style.
