Had to try this one after a sampler tray at the Helm's tasting room in San Diego. If for no one else then Kevin. This is actually a great smoked beer despite the name. Heavy on the smoke (hickory? mesquite?), like a great smoked ham, with a decent malt backbone. This would be a nice breakfast beer (breakfast burrito? ham and eggs?) or one to savor with a BLT or ham sandwich. Enjoyed this well beyond expectation.
