A nice hoppy beer, especially noticed in smell, but on the other hand it covers other beer properties too much. I am thinking whether I am imagining smoke from the description, and the yeast is also not really prominent. As a pale ale, I would give this a higher rating.

Interesting beer. Did not realize the style of this at first, as the lager and yeasty notes mix with a pale ale esque feel. Did not detect the smoke, though there is a quality in here that does not come through at first.

Pours clear light amber, one finger white head that subsides to a thin cap that lasts.
Smell of dry grains, spicy and green hops, some faint smoke, apple and pear.
Taste starts with a nice malt backbone, with a touch of nice sweetness and a strong mixed grain feel. Touch of fruit. Some wood notes, smoked, rather faint. Hops refresh with a bit of citrus, bring spiciness (backed by some yeast), bring some pine and grass and a big bitterness in the finish.
Light bodied, medium carbonation, bitterness cuts off most of the flavours, leaving grassy hops, some faint charcoal and burnt bread crust.
A smaller hop ration would have helped, leaving more room for the steam beer notes, but it's good as it is anyway.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Nose shows spicy and grassy hops, grainy pilsner malt and faint peat. A fruity note enters later hinting at pear and apple.
The peat is more evident as a flavours, supported by spicy noble hops with a soft minty twist. Lots of grainy malt underneath.
Carbonation is a little excessive.

Drank from my Mane Liquor tulip

A - Pours a clear copper/straw colour with a large bubbled head that laces and reduces to a film.

S - Hop and grain

T - Up front some nice floral notes followed by grains and hop. The finish is zesty and bitter.

M - Light to medium body with medium to full carbonation

O - Nice steam beer with a pils angle to it.
