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.

Tap. Mostly clear golden yellow pour with a spotty white head. Some smoked meat in this, plus lager yeast. Pretty cool combo - dont see this often.

Pours clean with white head. A Pilsner for sure. Citrus for sure - unless I read the bottle, I would never have known it was a "smoked" beer. Taste is a mishmash of tastes - grassy, citrus, herbs, floral. A dry finish to a so-so beer.

kramer (5950) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger frothy white head that had very good retention. The nose is pretty nice, a mix of pale bready and doughy malt with an aggressive campfire smokiness. Smells delicious to this fan of Smoked beers. The flavor is pretty smoky as well, but theres a fairly heavy hoppiness in here that doesnt really work all that well with the smoke for me. The bready malt base works pretty well with the smoke though. Lingering finish. Light bodied with a soft mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Interesting beer, not sure that I love it, but its decent.

12oz bottle pours a cloudy pale yellow almost Amber color with a thick white hes th fades and leaves spotty lacing. Smell of smoke, biscuits, lemon and slight citrus. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a slightly sharp hopiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with the perfect carbonation for a the style. One of the best pilseners Ive had in recent memory the sweet malts and smoked malt surprisingly work well together. Also liked the noticeable hops which arent usually present in most pilseners. A little pricey but worth it on occasion.

Clear yellow color. Has a bigger than normal head, but thats probably because I poured it very slowly. Color isnt so special but leaves a proud coronet of lace. The aroma does have a Rauchbier aroma (liquid smoke, peat, touch of meat), hovering over a pale barley malt aroma. The "regular" malt doesnt get in the way of the "special" malt. Flavors are similar: the smoke is there, along with a rather metallic second wave. There is a nice, sweet, English-style malt finish: buttery and biscuity. The feel is buttery as well. As far as pilsners go, this one adds just enough to make it better than its peers. Ill definitely revisit this.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draught at Tip Tap Room, 4/13/14
Clear but not the usual pale, straw golden appearance of your usual pilsner, rather this one is a peachy amber with a small white head atop that shows moderate to low retention.
Clean bready malts and light hop notes in the nose leave no indication of the smokiness. Light minerals, a brush of pale malt sugars and moderate citric hoppiness mixed with some leafy and spicy notes. No alcohol or flaws, medium strength of aroma.
Sweeter than expected, up front, with a caramel and honey maltiness, though certainly not too sweet. Soft, light carbonation and an easygoing effervescence producing an almost creamy feel to it. "Smoke" is not really evident until the finish and even then, its not like a German rauchbier. Theres no bacon or salted caramel here, rather an almost sourdough and sweet woodsmoke-like flavor that emerges more as it warms and mixes with some spicy, peppery hop notes. Works just fine and the restraint is appreciated.
