Z Lager

12 oz single from Total Wine, Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Nice copper clarity in the body and some decent head and lace form in the pint glass. Looks nice.
Carbonation is constant if not huge, but at the same time it is adequate.
Nose has a tiny bit of smoke but this is not a large presence. The main component seems to be a solid malt base.
The smoke is slightly more pronounced in the taste but it still remains fairly mild. The depth of smoke does not require food in the way that some other smoked beer do. Malts again come to the fore and the mouthfeel is quite silky. The aftertaste has a pleasing bitterness.
All on all very tasty and pleasing. low key bitterness and low key smoke but it works very well. Impressive.
