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.

On tap @ Craft Beer and Co Clapham, London - UK. Color: clear golden blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: malt and smoked malt. Woody notes. Taste: medium body with smoked malt and smoked wood notes. Strange balance but ok... Aftertaste: dry smoked notes. Not my style.

Bottle 33cl. Golden, hazy with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma, spices and citrus. Killer bitterness, light citrus and smoke ending.

Neither especially smoky, nor Pilsnery. Plenty of carbonation with a head that never fully disappeared. Light, slightly hazy and very well behaved in the glass with gentle lacing. No real hint of Saaz, but crisp and easy to drink when cold. As it warms, hints of citrus push through with a slight pear in the aftertaste. I tried to find the smokiness but couldn’t really, and while I appreciate that smoke could easily overpower such a light beer, what smokiness there was could easily have been mistaken for wheat.

just enough smoke to pair perfectly with anything off the grill! Yet still crisp and clean like you look for in a pilsner

Aroma is sweet and smoked roast malts with hickory and light pepperoni. Taste is sweet light malts balanced well with some light clove and earthiness. Appearance is a clear gold with small sediment in suspension.

Hazy, pale gold. Frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, smoke. Taste is tart, citrus, with a bitter, earthy smokiness. Lingering smoky finish. Light body, lively carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

12 oz. bottle poured at home. Day 13 of the craft beer advent calendar. Pours a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Took forever to pour because of the head. Smell was lemons and no smoke. Taste was kind of like grapefruit with a nice slightly bitter finish. I got a bit of smoke on the taste but not very much. The beer is good but it wasn’t what I expected at all.

Bottle to tulip Consummation: Halved grapefruit with a sprinkling of sugar. Adjunct: Lemon, not smoky nor pils-y, the carbonation burns. Is this a mislabeled beer?

RhetoricalAns (828) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Straw yellow pour, multitude of small floaters, huge white head (I wasn’t expecting the level of carbonation on the pour), some lacing, leaves a nice thin cap. Nice round grain aroma, not much smoke but there is a slight earthiness / heavy presence there. Taste i well balanced, again little smoke but heaviness to the grains. Medium body above average carbonation. Could drink quite a few of these.

Craft Beer Advent Calendar Day 13! Really nice pour into a pilsner glass. Medium yellow hue with a big foamy head. Decent lacing. Unfortunately smoked flavoring usually tastes really artificial and "meatey" to me unless done right, and that’s unfortunately the case here. Nice presentation but the taste just wasn’t for me.
