Poured from a growler filled at the brewery on 11/15.

Appearance: Poured slightly hazy and bright golden with a thick white head which stuck around till the end. Tiny bubbles and decent lacing. This brew really shines here.

Smell: Strong hickory-like smokiness and biscuity wheat malt. Faint spiciness and no noticeable hop aromas. The smoke dominates as one should expect.

Taste: Smokiness up front with a solid malt backbone and mild hop bitterness in the finish. Surprising that these subtleties came through especially as the beer warmed.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with crisp and tingly carbonation. I would expect such a strongly smoked beer to be fuller-bodied.

Drinkability: Fairly drinkable; a nice change-up to heavy, spiced, and dark winter brews.

On-Tap at Yards. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very hazy golden color with a decent white heading did keep a covering all throughout the tasting.

Smell is well I was just saying smoke malt and a bit of a zesty lemon aroma. When I asked my wife she laughed took a whiff and said Bacon. You know what know reading the review above that is not that crazy. Bacon it is.

Taste is a helluva alot of smoked wheat malt. A decent citrus lemon finish with a heavy yeast funk aftertaste.

Mouth is light bodied and crisp. I guess it is a little much of a linger of smokey malt.

A nice change of pace. If you can get it give it a shot.

Tapped at the BBQ on 8th and South St on 6/4/10, and again at the Opening Tap. Review of the BBQ tap from notes, although the cask at the Opening Tap is basically the same.

Hazy golden with a scant white head. No lace, fair retention. Nice wheat twang with a healthy dose of smoke, tobacco, and a hint of leather. The bbq-like flavors (which was very slight, but in a good way) blended well with the flavors of an American Pale Wheat Ale. A light and bubbly beer, this one has a good drinkability factor. Can definitely pound this if needed be.

Limited brew from a cask, at Philly Beer Week Opening Tap.

A: Cloudy golden straw tones with hints of copper. No head, no lacing.

S: Liquid smoke, bacon, camp fire

T: Strong earthy smoke flavors. Solid yeasty background with some wheat flavors.

M: Medium to full bodied, almost chewy. Smoked is an excellent style for a cask.

D: Well ive never had any smoked beer outside of a Porter or German Rauch, this one was new to me and had to taste a few times before it began to really grow on me. I appreciated the originality.
