At the Bavarian Lodge. Not bad fro something that isn’t my style really. Held back on the smoke so that it wasn’t like drinking a campfire. Hops may have not works so well against the smoke and needed a bit more malt but it was still over all not too bad. Serving: Tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is some kind of malt, but I cant smell very well right now. Nice light body. Very malty, pislner, really easy to drink. it has a very slight smokyness to it that compliments the pilsner malts quite well. Pretty well balanced and just generally good.

Bottled. Pours golden with a huge white head. Aroma of caramel, grain, grass, a hint of smoke and citrus notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Light to medium bodied, watery to oilt texture and lively carb. A nice pils.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Bomber. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a large soapy head that takes a long time receding. Aroma is campfire, smoked meats, licorice. Taste is sweet and smoky, not as nice as the aroma. Mouthfeel is sudsy and not very pilsner-like. No pilsner elements really at all. Not a bad beer, though, just lacking a little. It would be better without the champagne-like bubbles.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
POurs a yellow with haze,lots of head and extremely carbonated.Soapy aroma with some smoke and citrus. Tastes overattenuated and the overly estery aroma signals this may be infected. Lots of citrus in taste, with citrus pith bitter, not real pilsnery just a lot of carb citrus ester and strong grapefruit bitter. Overly carbonated for a typical pilsner or infected. Not shure. Its got that fruity infected thing Ive seen before mostly in aroma but with a taste killing attenuation. Hopfully the whole 4 pack isn’t like this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a medium sized foamy head that leaves some think soapy lacing when it fades. Really like the appearance. Aroma is mostly peat smoke with some hints of flowers, grain, and lemon citrus. Tastes better than I expected. Peat smoke is definitely the predominant flavor but the sweet cereal grain and citrus help make this more complex. The finish brings a nice toasted wood flavor to go with the smoke and hoppy bitterness. The sharp fizzy carbonation works great here. I liked this more than I thought I would. I’d love to drink this at a bonfire.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange to old gold colored pour with a 2 finger, fluffy white head. Aroma is surprisingly hoppy, spicy, earthy, floral and oily citrus hops, followed by wet campfire, cereal and husky grain. Flavor is all smoke (tastes very much like Beachwood smoke) and cereal right away, then some straw, toast, lemony citrus hops, light planty and woody notes, and citrus, and spicy hops along with some minerality and lingering smokiness to the finish. Light to medium body, creamy entry, medium, blanketing carbonation and off dry, almost crisp, but heavy from the smokiness, finish. Pretty tasty stuff overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
