Earthen Ales – Ale of the Earth – 3 smokestacks (out of 7)


No ghost writers here. Mike Lorr, friend of the ministry and honorary minister gets all the glory for drinking, evaluating, and writing about this one. All the way up in Traverse City, Michigan, a place called Earthen Ales offers up Ale of the Earth for a SmokeBeerMinistry appraisal. This smooth malty sweet beer is rounded out by a pleasant smoked overtone. Earthen Ales loves smokebeer and plan to use this beer as inspiration to make a true rauchbier soon. The ministry awaits his arrival. Until then, Ale of the Earth gets 3 smokestacks out of 7… gotta amp it up folks.
