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.

Smoked indeed! Wow, this is the definition of a 1 trick pony! Pours a cloudy gold w/ a tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma only slightly hints at the smokiness to follow in the taste. It’s almost as if the hops in this beer are currently on fire. I respect the originality here but it’s just not something that I would want to drink a lot of or often!

CacheManyHose (175) - HONG KONG - JUL 7, 2014
From Craftissimo. Pours a clear dusty gold-copper with thick foamy white head and lacing. Smells of smoked/roasted meats, bit of lemony grassy hop. Tastes similar, but with more pilsner flavours (lemon and pepper). Quite unusual and not overly strong (in the way that smoky beers sometimes are), but definitely a bit odd and reminiscent of food. Body is thin-medium with a little oil.

HKdIPA (228) - HONG KONG - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Clear golden pour. Aroma is exactly as expected - smoked pilsner, like bacon dipped in beer. Taste isn’t as smokey as the aroma would suggest, more of a classic pilsner. Maltier finish than expected. Not bad but not as interesting as I’d imagined. That said, it’s pretty much exactly what it says on the bottle.

Really interesting beer. The smoke is nothing like on a rauchbier, but more like woodsmoke, light and wispy. Fine hops and very well-structured.

Idiosynkrasie (3757) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2014
355ml bottle. Minimally cloudy golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, snow white head. Not overly intense, minimally smoky aroma, some wood, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is initially smoky in wood and ashes direction, immediately erased by fruity hoppy notes with mandarine and orange touch and subtle malt sweetness, before they combine to an integrated whole also including a floral hop note; malt sweetness has powder sugar character. Unbelieveably silky smooth palate. Very nice balanced, a great deal of subtle flavours, agile. Though very integrated, you can split up the taste in plenty a number of flavours and rearrange their sequence anew with every sip - not really palpable.

Tap @ Beer Temple, shared with andrejes, bierkoning, theJvd, joes & benzai. Clear golden blonde color. Dense white head with good lacing. Aroma’s - from the glass: vegetal, sulphur-ish, a bit weird - retronasal: smoky, some malty sweetness. Flavor is moderate bitter, moderate sweet, lightly smoky. Light bodied. Rather dry and bitter finish, Apart from the odd smell, nice.

pentaz (1238) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a lasting small white head. Aroma is spicy, smoke, apricot, grass, straw, mild citrus, pine and pepper. Taste is near moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes balanced, biscuity and light hoppy. Nicely integrated smoke and fine drinkability.

tricksta_p (1070) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2014
Aroma of bready malts, mild smoke, light hops. Flavour is light malty sweetness with a hint of smoke in the aftertaste. I really like this combination, I wish more Pilsners were smoked like this one. Well done.
