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.

According to FBO, this has a BB date of 239 14 which is 08/27/2014 (!!). Drank on 02/07/15 Hopefully I’m wrong because this shit is expensive. A: Dark hazy gold with a small but well retained white head. Good lacing. Lazy carbonation and visible sediment. S: Earthy floral hops on the nose. Subtle hints of smoke and stale white bread. T: Hoppy and sort of sour. Slightly more noticeable smokiness in the taste is well incorporated. Well balance overall, finishing bitter. The hops are pleasantly prominent. M: Medium bodied with a wet oily medium length finish. Below average but appropriate level of carbonation felt. O: Took a while to decide but I do like this. Well executed smoked pilsner. Probably will not purchase again though simply because it’s probably not good enough to justify the price or $12/4 pack (stupid-ass 4 packs). Recommended however.

nearbeer (4056) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2015
12 oz. on tap at Alewife. Lightly foggy amber with a small ring of cream. Mild nose of honey, wheat and smoke. Taste is more of the same with some dry grass on the finish. Near-medium body has a nice balance and a fairly smooth medium level of carbonation. Not much of a smoked, but pretty decent as a pilsner.

Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with a thin fluffy white head. Aroma is Pilsner malt, apricot, peach and the faintest hint of smoke. Taste follows but amps up the smoke ever so slightly. Very subtle. Slight rubbery taste as well. Light fluffy mouthfeel and medium carb. Very unique.

thornecb (4736) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours clear gold into a tulip. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Mild smoke and caramel aromas. Bready with roasted nuts and toast upfront turning mildly sour in the bitter earth finish.

sturmthis (856) - Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Hazy golden color with almost no head. Smells more like a typical pils (slight smoke), but the the taste has the smokiness. Pretty good, but I wouldn?t want to drink more than one at a time.

Przylus (378) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Aromat chlebowy, chmielowy i typowo pilsowy. Barwa złota, klarowne, duże wysycenie. Bardzo wysoka i drobna piana. W smaku przyjemnie goryczkowo chlebowe. Goryczka w miarę wysoka, przyjemna, ale krótka. Minus za styl, ponieważ w piwie brak akcentów wędzonych.

shoulderbroken (2639) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle at Delirium. Aroma has bit of smoke and meat. Interesting taste. The smoke is subtle, lots of body, malty, initial hop bitterness but soon fades in to something almost a little sweet. Very interesting. Very nice.

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2014
On tap at Bukowski after EBF. Pours a hazed amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft grain on the nose, no real smoke that I can find. Medium bodied, soft grain, vague hints of smoke. Soft smoke comes through along the way, gentle and faintly campfire like. Lingering grain in the finish. Decent but not mind blowing.

probstblueribbon (3242) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy golden with a smallish white head. Aroma: Grainy malts, lightly fruity with light to moderate wood smoke, slightly metallic, a bit of lemony spiciness (Belgian-like), smoke starts to assert itself as the beer warms, Palate: Medium body, somewhat sparse carbonation. Flav.: Grainy maltiness, tropical fruits, light to moderate meat smoke, a little herbal, not as expressive as the nose; dry with moderate+ bitterness and a slightly metallic, grainy malt and faint smoke finish.

An interesting take on a smoked beer...and a Pils, for that matter. You go, Cowboy.
