UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Bottle: Hazy orange with a thin white head, oranges and dirt in the aroma, starts and ends lightly bitter, thin bodied with a unpleasant aftertaste. Am I rating the same beer as everyone else? Without a doubt the most disappointed I’ve been with a Sam Smith’s.

Extremely drinkable and well balanced. Doesn’t distinguish itself like most Sam Smith beers, but of very high quality.

Another enjoyable brew from Samuel Smith’s...lighter in body than the pale ale, less malt and hops, but an easy drinking and enjoyable beer.

Wow, tough to beat this one. Blows the organic lager out of the glass.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2001
Nice foamy head on top of amber liquid. Slight diacetyl nose and notes, characteristic of their other beers. The butteriness of this brew is more tolerable, however, because of the fine hops to balance it out. Hops are very smooth, but with appropriate bitterness. A delicious ale.

Indra (2621) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 9, 2001
UPDATED: APR 6, 2005 Lightly fruity, citric hop aroma, some gently sweet, bready pale maltiness and touches of hay and herbs. Light-medium copper color with a lasting, creamy, fine head. Flavor begins with a twinge of lightly astringent, citric bitterness, becoming dry and faintly malty with a rather tangy, moderately bitter finish. Palate is somewhat highly carbonated and drying with a light-medium body. OK on warmer days occasionally.
