Purchased in 12 oz cans direct from the brewery. Poured into a 12 ounce nonic. Poured a transparent amber brown with a nice one-half inch head. Taste was surprising: the promised smokiness was subtly present, slightly more malt than hop taste, but not sweet in the normal malty fashion, with a pleasant mild after taste. Mouth feel was nothing unusual. Overall this "smoked old ale" is something I could drink all day. (I am half-way through the second 12 ounce pour as I finish writing this.)
