Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/12/2016


(sample bottle BBE Jul/17) Hazy, sand yellow with thin but retentive off-white head and light lacing.


Bonfire smoke, yeast, soft new leather maltiness.


Dry and medium-bodied. Light smokiness integrates well with lightly yeasty toasty white bready malt and mil grassy hops.


Dry, lightly smoked finish.


This beer is smoky, but delicately so, with lightly bitter hops and malty notes in balance rather than overshadowed.
