Waterloo Brewing Co. Roggenbier Smoked Beer at 5.3% ABV (C$3.46 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before)

Appearance: clear amber-brown, one finger of loose light tan head diminishing gradually to a medium cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: smoke, caramel, dark fruit, wood and earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, lingering smoky bitter finish. (3/5)

Actually, surprisingly easy drinking. The applewood smoke is quite restrained, and there are interesting notes of caramel and fruit. I wasn’t expecting much, but this is actually OK. (13/20)
