look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

A: Pours golden amber with a slight bit of haze. Rich white two finger head and concentric rings of lacing.

S: Lemon. Spice. Slight smoke essence.

T: Citrus, biscuity, very faint smoke taste on the finish...Adds nicely to the overall dryness to this brew and compliments the lemon/citrus tones. Very well built.

M: Wonderful. Slightly carbonated like most of the pilsners I have tasted but it has a very nice finish. Slightly dry but pleasant from the hops used and the biscuity malts.

O: Fantastic. I wish I had bought a sixer of this. One you could drink easily in a session with friends. Prost.
