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.

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

65 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. Thx! to Plovmand. Hazy golden with a sticky very creamy white head. Nose is pure leather, smoke, light lactic touches & some citrus hops. Taste carries light smoke, finishes in pure lovely leather, touch lactic, citrus hops, lemon. Very creamy body. Beautiful beer & a great way to start.

8 oz. chalice from draft at the Thirsty Monk. Pours a hazy gold. Man, the aroma is excellently smoky. The bartender "warned" me at least twice of the cowboy’s intense smokiness and I was not disappointed. The lighter body of this beer really lets the smoked malt cut through. There is a very genuine, long lingering campfire flavor. It’s very sharp. The dryness of the pilsner flavors work excellently and don’t get in the way of the smoke. There are token cracker and papery hop notes which compliment smoke in a way I somehow never thought of. This is truly excellent!

Superb. I’m not much of a pilsner guy, but more beers like this could convince me otherwise. Nice smokiness perfectly infuses the brew -- making its presence known at all times without being overbearing. Interesting slipperiness, if you will, in mouthfeel. Recommended.

Jetulio (119) - Tarragona.SPAIN, SPAIN - SEP 1, 2013
650 ml bottle poured into a Tulip glass Appearance....... cloudy orange beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers Aroma............... grass, floral very smokey. Fresh and strong smell with a little touch of malty aroma too Taste........ citrus and herbal, touch of malt with smokey wood in mouth, bitterness appears lately to complete a complex beer Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation Overall............ a very nice beer, bitterness is present in a light style, refreshing beer being a smoked pilsner. Well executed idea. To repeat.

Keg from brewdog bar in sheffield. Misty golden beer with a lacy white head. Aroma of smoke. Taste is wonderful, sweet and smoky with a refreshing lightness. Medium carbonation and body. Awesome, why not just smoke all pilsners?

Excalibur123 (363) - Soria, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2014
Muestra color amarillo medio algo turbio, media cabeza de espuma con escasa retención; en nariz se aprecian aromas a levadura, malta ahumada y pan, en boca entrada suave con amargor muy equilibrado, notas a galleta y ligeramente especiada; cuerpo y carbónico medios con pos gusto largo en una cerveza fácilmente bebible y bien balanceada , una grata sorpresa.

The Cowboy deserves to have its pour scored to the original theme from Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Okay, to be fair, I don’t know if The Cowboy should truly make us think back to that point in history, but then again, neither should Leone’s films. Damn things were filmed in Italy, hence the name Spaghetti Westerns. What the hell am I going on about? Ah well, I guess the point was to say that something doesn’t have to be consistent with reality to be seen as authentic. The Cowboy is like that. It’s a smoked beer that isn’t much like a smoked beer. Yes, it’s darker than your average Pils with almost an orange color. Just of touch of smoke in the aroma along with bread-like yeast notes. Flavor somehow manages to capture both clean Pils malt and a touch of savory smoke. How’s it manage to do both? Beats me, just gimme another.

P: Pours a pale golden body with a milky white cap. S: Aroma is similar to a tweed couch. Pilsner malt, musty hops, leather, stone fruit, chalky esters and bonfire ash. Has a barnyard aroma to plays nicely with the delicate smoke. T/M: Follows the nose with a nice profile of smoky wheat, a healthy dose of spice, chalky yeast, salt and old leather. Medium body with a sting of carbonation that erupts on the tongue. Finishes semi sry with a plastic aftertaste. O: Hands down one of the best smoked beers I have tried. Crisp clean and a refined smoke that enhances the flavor rather than resemble liquid smoke. Easy drinkability that really delivers.
