COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smoked pilsner. I need to know what kind of beer cowboys drink, as I have recently become one. I want to be the best cowboy I can be, and I think drinking the correct beer is important. I already have a cowboy hat and a nice big shiny buckle.

"Pours a hazy orange, more akin to an ipa than a pilsner. Also a little thinker in body than i’m used to for the style. But overall, the beer works. At first the aroma is a little sweet, then come the grassy hops and smoke. The smoke is more obvious in the flavor, which is actually quite balanced between the smoke, grass, and sweet malt. Nice brew."

I enjoy smoked beers, so had to give this a try. Some citrus, some malt, not totally a pilsner like I’m used to, and then the smoke comes in. Pretty interesting stuff, but not a beer I’m dying to try again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with moderate foamy white head. Lots of carbonation. Aromas of hickory smoke and fruit. Sharp flavors of citrus and toasty malts with a smoky backing. Not the greatest taste but the sharpness cuts the smoke making it refreshing when chilled.

minutemat (1656) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth. Pours cloudy gold with a swirl of fine white bubbles. Sharp smokey aroma. Taste is lightly sweet, crisp, dry pilsner with distinct smoky character. Nice but can’t say smoked pilsners will be taking the world by storm. Give me a rauch any day!

04.09.2014, 0,65l bottle @ home:
Huge fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet smoked, weeds, lightly smoked caramel malts, hay, paper, grass, alcohol, bark. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, weeds, paper, minerals, harsh grass, lightly smoked caramel malts, bark, sap, hay. Medium bitterness, harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea...

Poured into a Pilsner Flute -- Brilliant clear with a dissipating white head. A nice pilsner with a sweet flavor, moderate bitter hops, and a very subtle smokiness. The smokiness almost imparts a sweet hickory flavor. Very nice.

erickok (3549) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 25, 2014
Light hazy, grey head. Lightest of smoke, less than expected, pale malts, simple hopping, underwhelming. Medium body, well carbonated, not as crisp as could be, especially in the absence of real smokey body. Nice idea but failed for me, while I was really looking forward to this one. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

Barwa: złocista, początkowo lekko zmętniona, po dolaniu zdecydowanie bardziej, bowiem na dnie widoczne są dość duże kłaczki. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość obfita, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. [5/5] Aromat: zbożowy, słodko - kwaskowy, drewniany, nieco wędzony, idący w stronę grodzisza. Na koniec lekka nuta alkoholowa. Smak: umiarkowanie pełny, słodowy, raczej wytrawny, typowy dla pilsnera. Dość wyraźna goryczka i i subtelna wędzoność podobna do rodzimego grodziskiego. Tym razem zdecydowanie jasna propozycja z Evil Twin. Barwa i piana bez zarzutu, natomiast w aromacie i smaku przyszły mi namyśl pilsner urquel oraz przede wszystkim grodziskie, bowiem to piwo zdaje się być ich syntezą. Czy udaną? Trudno powiedzieć, bowiem nie jestem olbrzymim fanem pilsnerów, natomiast na "kowboja" zdecydowałem się jedynie z powodu obiecanej nuty wędzonej. Niestety nie była tak wyraźna, jak oczekiwałem, zatem odczucia mam w najlepszym razie mieszane. Z pewnością za tą cenę można kupić ciekawsze piwa.

Goudgeel licht troebel met bezinksel, enorme schuimkraag. Aroma is rokerig en zoet fruit. Smaak is bitter, wat droog mondgevoel. Mooie afdronk en redelijke body. Mis wat complexiteit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to czar for this one. Pours a hazy golden with a high white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of fruits and light smoke, pils-y. Taste is of fruits and fresh grains, smoke is well integrated. It is dry and crisp, like a good pilsner. It is pretty bitter and even a little spicy. Smoke is never too intense, in fact I think I’d prefer if it were more smoke-forward. Body is light, carbonation high and mouthfeel is oily. Overall a nice pils, subtle and easy drinking.
