Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy bronze amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of smokehouse and caramel malt. Flavor is also mild; biscuit malt and smoke, less smokehouse than the aroma, more like a campfire. Hints of grassy hops. Light to medium bodied. A fairly mellow and laid back smoked beer. The smoke is lightly done, but effective, but the malt body is also light and secondary to the smoke. Less intense and interesting than the German rauchbiers, but not bad for a smoked session ale. Pleasant and worth a try.

Pours a crystal clear light amber toned copper with a relatively fast fading white head.

Nose is assertive smoky fruit esters with hints of sweet leather and fresh cut wood. Really pleasant with a hint of sweet tones.

Mouthfeel is light but with nice carbonation and balance and becomes less significant with the assertive and strong flavor profile.

Flavors are almost citric smoke with bright pine and grapefruit skin hop tones. In other words, this is a fresh and citric hoppy beer with smoky tones all through the palate. It sounds worse than it is. Hints of smoke, leather and wood, all nicely balanced and integrated.

Finish is grapefruit skin/citric bitter and long lasting.

For some reason the juxtaposition of citric bitter hops and smoky leather works. I can't figure it out but it tastes good...well, it must taste good since I keep wanting to go back and drink more. Nice flavors with food and I'd consider this much more of a hoppy beer than a smoky beer. Quite drinkable. 12/12
