Oliphant Hans MacGruber

Here's a beer from Oliphant that I had once at the taproom, last August, and then many times when we recently had a keg at Acadia. I took some notes before it finally kicked, not too long ago. Here they are:

Oliphant Hans MacGruber Smoked Vienna Lager. 5.4% ABV.

Clear, amber/copper, good sized off-white head, lace leaver.

In the nose, smoky notes meet sweet malt.

In the mouth: light, woody smoked flavor is dominant, but lightly played. Smooth, easy drinker. Good smoked vienna lager and you can drink it.

On the taproom chalkboard, Jeremy Hughes alternates between depictions of Alan Rickman (Hans Gruber) and Will Forte (MacGruber). When last I visited, he used an image from an appearance Forte made on an episode of "Tim & Eric", because, of course.
