Clear blonde without any head, this beer delivers a light but enjoyable smoke presence. A lot on the malt the beer also shows some herbal hop notes. Quite drinkable

Pours a hazy dark orange (it's hard to pinpoint -- looks kinda like apple juice) with two-finger, airy white head. Almost no lacing.

Smell is citrusy and very malty -- there's bread and also a kind of sausage/cigar smell from the smoked malts. Leather too. Sounds like it shouldn't blend very well with the citrusy hops, but it does.

Taste is similar, but less hoppy. The smoked malts really play a central role here. It's not very flavourful though -- I expected it to be heavier. Hops get more pronounced as it warms, so it ends up being pretty fruity, notably in the aftertaste. Slightly peppery too.

Light body, light carbonation. Again, not what I was expecting, but it works surprisingly well.

So smoked beers don't have to be dark! Cool. Shame the taste is not as strong as you'd expect from the smell.
