Loved this smoked pilsner. You don't often see such a light varietal as Pilsner getting smoked, but this one really works out well. Definitely more of a campfire-smokebeer than a bacon-smokebeer, it keeps it's crispness and still has nice strong smoke notes. Good execution, and I want more.

Pours an opaque orange with one finger's worth of dense, creamy white foam. Sheet down the glass. Smell: wood smoke as in smoked cheese, grainy, mildly grassy. Taste: spicy, citrus, grain husk. Not much of the smoke character here. Drying finish. Interesting.

Golden color with a thick three finger head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice predominant aroma of smoked malts with hints of bread and bacon.
Flavor of smoked malts, grassy hops, pine, lemon and pepper. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
That is a tasty and balanced Pils, initially it was hard to imagine it would work it out, but they did it again.

330ml brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars. Bottle conditioned. I left a good inch and a half at the bottom to avoid pouring the sediment.

Pours a deep golden colour, with good clarity. Head is fluffy and persistent, forming a very decent crest of yellowed-white atop the beer. Lacing is streaking and solid. It's a great looking beer.

Nose is a pleasantly quaint mingling of mild beech smoke and green-bottle euro skunk. Once it's swirled a bit the skunk disappears, leaving a deeper, grainier note and a darker smoke character that starts to get a little earthy, with truffle and mushroom coming through. Hops are quite muted, although that pleasant green generic European aroma does waft around in the background for a while. It's very pleasant.

Taste is also very good indeed. For the most part, it's a very well-made pilsner, crisp and clean, with a direct vector of hops through the centre. Later there's a slightly more pronounced bitterness, which blossoms into a strange, smoky back palate bringing a slight cured meat sweetness to the mix as well. Finish is very crisp with a punctuation point of hops making a clean break from the smokiness. The result is the aftertaste is extremely bright and light, without any lingering effects.

Feel just what you want: clean and crisp and light. Perfectly suitable.

Overall, this is an exceptionally drinkable beer with twists to give it interest. While it uses the smoke to interesting effect, at heart it's just a damn good pils, and it manages to stay that way despite the strange places the smoke takes it.

330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Enjoyed on mar´13. Gold in color & veiled appearance. White, creamy froth shows fairly good retention. Floral & very subtle smoked aromas. Soft malt upfront followed by increasing smoky touch & clean citric bitterness. Light body. Moderate carbonation gives a touch of fun. Sharp bitter sensation in the middle lasts into a dry bitter finish softened by gentle smoked notes.
