On tap. Proper yelllow goldn color.

Aroma is very mild. Expected a bit more smoke.

Flavor is just okay. I want either (or both) more smoke, or a more clear pilsener taste from the malt bill. The malt profile tastes a but too generic. No real hop profile to make note of (didn't get any saaz, that's for sure). A sweet note is noticeable on the finish, which throws me a bit.

As a whole the beer doesnt taste bad, and some people will probably be content with it. But it just doesn't serve up what I want in either a smoked beer or a pils.

Pour like any normal light beer ... No really detectable aroma, nothing for the nose to pick up on.
The first taste and all I could feel is carbonation, a bit too much for my liking.
Then, I can taste smoke, lots of it. Now I know what it feels like to be a ham inside a smoker!
The smoked taste and the light carbonated style was very balanced for me.

I did not like this too well, but I can see how others could enjoy this beer.

Appearance: Yellow-gold, lots of particles, good head.

Smell: Skunky, bit of smoke.

Taste: Hits first with citrus and some skunk, then some breadiness. Just a little bit of smoke is noticeable.

Overall: I like smoked beers so picked up one of these as Evil Twin just started distribution in Minnesota. Not a very good first impression, kind of a mixed bag taste with only a hint of smoke flavor.
