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

Pours a finger of dirtied white head over a cloudy peach-colored liquid. Smells tame overall. Beefy smoke and nutmeg, very old cedar fence, wet paper, and very light citrus. A little bit like a Gose-styled beer. Tastes robust fruit-wood smoked malt, oranges, and sun-baked wood. Almond and apricot esters (not good for a lager styled beer). Dry malt, wetting esters, sharp carbonation, light in the mouth, and mild alcohol. Simply gets across the idea of a rauchbier. Great way to introduce people to the style without overwhelming them with complexity.
