Day 13 of the Craft Beer Advent Calendar.

L: A Hazy yellow with a nice white head, and a slight red tinge to it.

S: A smokeyness, that overpowers most things but there a slight hop smell to it as well.

T: Crisp with a fair amount of smoke to it. Slight bitterness from the hops but you can't taste very much hops.

F: Light bodied with a slight amount of carbination and leaves a nice smokey taste in your mouth.

O: A good beer by evil twin but kinda upset again that this beer wasn't made for just the calendar like it was supposed to be.

12oz bottle

A — Pours a straw colored golden hue into the glass. There is a bit of a light white head on it that manages to stick around and leave some lacing behind.

S — Smells lightly smoky at first, similar to a campfire, not like an ashtray, its just a nice light smoky balance to the sweet and crisp pilsner malt character underneath.

T — Tastes nice and clean, notes of pilsner malts, little bit grainy and a touch of sweetness. The smoke component is very well balanced and not overdone, just a bit of an essence of smoke without dominating the palate.

M — Light in body, crisp and clean.

O — Very nice overall, a great example of what smoke can do for a beer.

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

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is smoked lemon, pretty nice.
The taste is a nice smoky lemon and pine bitterness.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.

Short Review, I had a few sample of this and I thought it was pretty nice, it had a nice balance of hoppy Pilsner and smokey flavors with the smoke showing up just enough and it doesn't seem to cover up any of the nice hop flavors while working well with them. I would buy this if I saw bottles of it. I liked it.

I guess it's because I rated it much higher than I rate most pilsners. Smoked beer is just tasty.
