Lightly Smoked Pilsner

<p>Port Moody and Gibsons BC have finally met and the result is a collaboration between Persephone and <a href=>Yellow Dog Breweries</a>. The fruits of their labours have resulted in what is called the Lightly Smoked Pilsner. Labelled with a Hop riding a dog, this beer&rsquo;s unique look matches a unique and rather untested style by BC standards. From the bottle this beer pours as a crisp, light golden colour topped with two fingers of head which settles slowly and without a trace. A malty aroma comes in on the nose with a light sweetness and a kick of beechwood smoke. The smoke is quite subtle though an dreally just adds a bit of smoothness and earthiness to the aroma. In the flavour this beer is light and easy drinking. The malt forward body is rather crisp and refreshing while a light sweetness adds additional smoothness. The smoke flavour builds as the flavour progresses and grounds the flavour with a unique and subtle wood-smoke tone. Smoke could very easily overpower the delicateness of a Pilsner but Yellow Dog and Persephone have mastered their balance here with a sessionable, unique and delicious, smoked pilsner.</p>
