3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

12oz brown bottle from the 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Yellow colour, unlcear, lots of carbonation bubbles rushing through the liquid, big airy white cap. Nose has fruit and lemon but not very smoky... hmmm. Taste - grains, smoke (there it is!), grass, lemon. Nice overall, smokiness is subtle, but adds a nice touch to a decent lager.

CBAC day 13! Love that the smokiness is nice and balancing rather than dominating on both the Aroma and flavor. Clean malt profile with the clean pilsner yeast characters... Crisp finish with some smoke and campfire...could drink many of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear pale gold with a fluffy three fingers and growing white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: light smoke, citrus, grainy pale malt, grassy. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, longish sticky sweet slightly smoky finish. (4/5)
Quite a lightly smoked pilsner, quite pleasant. Crazy head retains all the way through, finishing as a marshmallow on the bottom of the glass. I guess cowboys like their cigarettes in their beer? (15/20)

2015 beer advent. Pours slightly cloudy and quite light. Mild smokiness, which is nice, not overpowering. The beer is not perfectly cleanly brewed though in my opinion.

355ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is smoky with some lemon and cereal grains. Taste is a lemon tartness with a caramel malty sweetness and a citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good brew for the style, as the smoke does not overpower the rest of the beer. Very enjoyable and recommended.
