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.

I'm not a fan of smoked beers, especially porters, or wheat beers, but this beer turned out to be quite different than my expectations. Appearance was a slight golden color with an small head. Smell was malty wheat with a bare hint of smoke. Taste was slightly sweet, malty and smokey. The smoke taste didn't overwhelm and was quite agreeable. The malts and hops were well-balanced. Mouthfeel was crisp and dry. Overall this was a very drinkable beer and one I would consider for regular rotation. i just hope it will soon be available in a bottle.

12oz bottle shared by Vito at the Copper Mine on 7/24/11 thanks amigo!

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy radiant orange with little to no crown, retention, or lace.

Smell: Smoked tomato juice and a dash of wheat.

Taste: Same as nose but a bit less tomato juice.

Mouthfeel: Thick side of thin bodied with fairly low carbonation for a wheat beer.

Drinkability: Easy to knock back if it wasn't for the not so appealing smell/taste.
