There is some light smoke on the nose but it is not Schlenkerla or even Spezial intensity. Pours hazy gold under a 2” finely bubbled white foam collar. A very creamy palate with rich malt flavors, light smoke preceding a herbal, dry finish. Medium body and a very, fine soft carbonation that is short of prickly. Its a good beer but it could use a touch more smoke.

i have not had much smoked pils, this is only the second or third i can recall, but its probably my favorite of the lot. its less smoke heavy, not so rauch and german and intense and campfire based. its a pils first and a smoked beer second, which lets the light grain still be light, and the mouthfeel not smolder into something much heavier than the style asks for. just a slightly brown hue to the golden beer, but definitely more hazy than most pilsener beers out there. the head is small but easily resurrected with a whirl of the glass. the nose and taste both show some sweetness, not as dry as others, and the lager yeast is totally lost along with the crisp finish it usually brings. the smoke, as light as it is here, still drags it on quite a ways in the finish. woody as it is smoky, i like that, and i still taste all the grain, which is really fresh. carbonation is high even though the beer looks flat. a combination of two styles i dont unconditionally love, but this is a great beer, very well balanced for what it is, and as good in terms of overall quality as we all now expect out of evil twin. i could drink several of these in a sitting, which may be the greatest testament to its appeal.
