UPDATED: AUG 7, 2008 Several pubs around london. Beautiful cloudy golden apparance - mild aroma, slightly lemony. Impressive sharpness to the taste. A tiny bit too sweet, but nevertheless very impressive for a British attempt at the style. Quality is very dependent on the pub, it seems, as this seems to be far better in some of the london Sam Smiths pubs than others.

As Samuel Smith Wheat beer. Hazy yellow with thick white head. Much banana and coriander in the aroma. The taste is sweet but spiced up by coriander and ginger.

Tasty, slightly peace and lemon flavored. Remember this one better in retrospect, from my pre-RateBeer days. Still pretty wonderful. Had this at Lyceum Tavern, London.

Draught (Cittie of Yorke, London)
Cloudy yellow - thin light head. Good german style wheat beer. Light wheat and corriander aroma. Fizzy and sharp in the mouth. Slightly corny - caramel and candyfloss - sweetness, some light banana. Very authentic. Sessionable at 5% no doubt.

This is a real eye opener - a UK brewed Hefe that gets it right. I’ve had several pints in differnet pubs around London and my opinion is set: Good work Sam Smiths. First off it comes in a squat, but attractive Hefe glass, with a decent head. Nice orange, cloves and corriander aroma and flavours. Slightly watery, but not unpleasently so. Easy to drink, inexpensive compared to other draft Hefe’s and a lovely warm orange colour to boot. Give it a go.
