3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Kinda reminds me of the lighter smoke profile found in Schlenkerla Eiche- Dry, oaky smoke, light ointment with a little lemongrass. Appearance: Light, unfiltered copper pour with a small white head that fades into a skin. Flavor: Dry smoked malts up front with a little lemon; lemon comes out a bit more towards the finish to quench the dryness, but eventually terminates in a lightly bitter manner. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Interesting stuff; the leaner smoked profile makes this perhaps an ideal beer to introduce smoked beers. Still, the enthusiast can appreciate it as well.

Looks like an artisanal pilsner, smells like there’s a little smoke there, and in the flavor there’s something going on but it isn’t pronounced enough to really say "smoke". Light sausage flavor. Most of the bottle was contributed to a batch of chili, and I think that’s the appropriate result here. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a small creamy white head that quickly diminishes to a thin ring and leaves some lacing. Pilsner hops in the aroma, some pine, bubblegum?! but no smoke. Lightly bitter, medium body, fine bubbles in a lively carbo, creamy texture and a smooth, lingering lightly bitter finish. Where’s the smoke?

According to FBO, this has a BB date of 239 14 which is 08/27/2014 (!!).

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.

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.
