A: The beer is very dark brown when viewed from afar but when held up to a glass it is clear but very dark red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a narrow collar of beige bubbles around the edge of the glass and lots of wisps of lacing on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell but has stronger flavors of smoked malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer was very easy to drink given its lighter body nature.

Serving type: can

Crowler from Westmere Beverage in Albany, NY.

This one pours a golden amber color, with a small head, and lots of white sticky lacing.

This smells like light ad wispy smoke, fermented maple, caramel, dark breadiness, and tobacco.

The smoke is lightly done here, luckily - it's certainly a flavor that can get overwhelming with over-use. The maple is definitely there, but it doesn't add to much overwhelming sweetness. The smoke is there - and adds a light and clean earthiness, alongside caramel drizzled breadiness, and tobacco and grassy hoppiness.

This is light bodied, creamy, and rich, with a great drinkability, and a nice creamy smoothess on the back end.

I like this a lot. Oxbow is going to do stuff well that no one else is really gonna try.
