This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

There is smoke that billows from the realms we dare not name. The Formorian Priestess dwells within these realms and this is our tribute to her in smoked lager form. Crisp, slightly malty and refreshing this lager is sure to satisfy even her.

Had on tap in a pint glass, poured an absolutely clear yellow with a very white head. Light lacing. Smell was a little off putting to be honest, great smoke smell as well notes of bacon and maple. Couldn't smell the beer through the smokiness but I would attribute that to the fact it is a lager. Taste felt unrefined but palatable, not my cup of beer to be honest. I've had a smoked stout before and I enjoyed it quite a bit but a smoked lager just doesn't have the body to cut through the bacon/smoked peat flavor. Taste was overwhelmingly bacon grease and peat. Probably a good beer for fans of the style but I would take the pass if I saw this on tap again.

Served in a Three Floyds XV Anniversary tulip pint glass at Fountainhead.

I just had to try this, a new smoked beer from the Floyds. Had to. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises wheat and light hickory smoke. The taste holds notes of hickory smoke, lightly funky wheat, and light sourdough. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice little smoked beer, but not much going on with it. The smoke is nicely balanced, though.

Normally, you find smoked porters but very interesting when you find a smoked pilsner.

It's pours a clear/clean gold, nice carbonation with a quarter inch head. This beer had a lot of smokey flavor and I liken to drinking a beer too close to a campfire because all you're really tasting at that point is the smoke.

Overall though, I enjoyed the beer. It was easy drinking, had a nice feel to it but I think I'll stick to smokey porters if I'm gonna go this route.
