Pours a nice dark amber that looks almost ruby reddish given the right light. Nice lacing. Smell of smoke is not as intense as the darker cousin. Tons of white particles. This beer has substance and is alive! Lots of faint fruitiness. Tastes great and not too heavy. A nice summer smokey alternative to the darker beer. Great beer!

Served in short glasses, at a tasting. Very nice appearance. Not a beer I would drink every day, but very unique! The smokiness was overpowering at times (leave subtleness out in this one!), and agreed from previous comments that this is best had ice cold. I would buy again for a group tasting to get a variety of opinions. Glad to have tried this one.
