Moor's standard strange 660ml bottle purchased from Camperdown Cellars in Stanmore. Shared with Rich.

Pours a hazed, very pleasant bronze hue, with a decent body and good consistency of colour. Head forms a solid cap of off-white with yellow tinges that leaves streaks of fine leopard-spot lace. Carbonation is extremely fine. Looks very good.

Nose is laced with subtle smoke, giving a peppery overtone above a solid, slightly spicy basis that gives off a few estery notes of banana. There's a fluffy sweetness to it: not a truly solid maltiness, but an airy, whimsical quality that counteracts the stranger smoke and pepper characters. Not bad.

Taste is light and clean for the most part with a bite of bitterness at the back that has slight reminiscences of smoke, but perhaps not enough to make me think that the bitterness just comes from that source. Clean, slightly green finish with a slight vegetative bite and an aftertaste slapped with a dash of that pepper again. Pleasant enough.

Feel is light and I dare say slightly empty: a little more true roundness would help the body and perhaps broaden some of the characters it obviously wants to promote.

Overall, this is decent stuff, but I've had much better from Moor. This is still well crafted, but it didn't really do justice to the ingredients as much as it could have: perhaps I wanted it more extreme, and its restrained nature disappointed me a little.

Tap @ Moor, Bristol - Pours hazy bronze with large white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - light smoke, peppery notes, Taste - light smoke at the front and moving right through, nice roasted malt feel, slight banana notes, light bitter finish. Lovely well balanced lightly smoked beer.

Can from real ale in Twickenham. Pretty good, smokey and balanced, good carbonation and really drinkable.
