What the brewers say

“Smoked helles lager using a base malt blend accompanied by beech-smoked barley malt.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma is camp smoke and Texas barbecue, fresh, deep post oak, absolutely lovely. Flavor is slightly sweet, toasty smoke with a soft, bready malt flavor that takes center stage. A balancing bitterness keeps everything in check, and the smoke really adds wonderful depth. Absolutely fabulous beer.”

What our editors thought

“Smoked malt notes on the nose exude lightness and refinement, with a subtle sweet-malt edge and light citrus highlights. Malt sweetness pushes forward in the sip, buffering the initial smoke flavor while making room for a pleasant herbal bitterness that plays well against it. Complex and dynamically changing over the course of the glass, it’s an engaging beer at every moment.”
