In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Live Oak Brewing Smoked Gose

“Smoky phenolics dominate the nose, coming through as woody, complementing a light spicy phenol. Nice complexity without a hint of campfire. Images of ham hocks come to mind. Once in the mouth, the firm tartness, well-handled salt, smoke, and fruity esters (lemon and tangerine) meld into an interesting flavor that is a nice departure from the crowd. Very light and easy-drinking, but interest is piqued due to the depth of flavors.”
