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.

superspak (3968) - Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 11/13/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy pale golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, biscuit, cracker, wood smoke, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and smoke notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, biscuit, cracker, wood smoke, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, pear, biscuit, cracker, wood smoke, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malt, hop, and smoke flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice smoked pilsner. All around good balance of malt, hop, and smoke flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Draft at Brouwer’s in Seattle. Rich gold with tall white head. Soft sweet smoke, great aroma. Nice, more smooth honey pils, with great smoked malt. Very balanced, nice base and rational smoke choice. Lovely.

DandyWolfFloyd (851) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Aroma - complex aroma when you get past the grilled ham smokiness, which I love by the way. There is some caramel, biscuit, and suppressed alcohol. Very interesting Appearance - the body color is a hazed out yellow/orange. The head was white, big and frothy and bold, dissipates into a foamy top about a 1/4" thick. There is also some dappled lacing Taste - has a tang of bitterness and a nice grilled piece of ham like smoke. Under all that is a some caramel malt Palate - the body is more towards medium than light, the texture lends it self towards thin, the carbonation on the palate is average, somewhat lively, and the finish leaves a smoky bitterness and some of those grilled ham flavors. Leaves some soapy notes on the tongue, if that makes any sense. Enjoyable. Really falling head over heals with this company. Love smoked beer, and I quite enjoy this (must try)

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2014
P: Pours a pale golden body with a milky white cap. S: Aroma is similar to a tweed couch. Pilsner malt, musty hops, leather, stone fruit, chalky esters and bonfire ash. Has a barnyard aroma to plays nicely with the delicate smoke. T/M: Follows the nose with a nice profile of smoky wheat, a healthy dose of spice, chalky yeast, salt and old leather. Medium body with a sting of carbonation that erupts on the tongue. Finishes semi sry with a plastic aftertaste. O: Hands down one of the best smoked beers I have tried. Crisp clean and a refined smoke that enhances the flavor rather than resemble liquid smoke. Easy drinkability that really delivers.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
Fra flaske, 65 ml. Klar gylden med et lavt hvidt skum. Sødlig, frugtig, citrus aroma med klare røg-noter af lejrbål. Meget tørrere i munden end i næsen. Gode fylde, god røg, god bitter finish.
