Not much taste, light weight, didn’t enjoy it very much!

Not much flavour, quite bitter but its a bit edgy in taste, not great.

Nice pale color with plentiful head and generous lace. Great aroma with a sweet malty flavor. Very good brew in my opinion. Not sure if I am rating the same beer as everyone else...mine says Organic Ale..not Organic Best Ale.

Pretty dull. Maybe all those pesticides are what make beer great. You think?

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2001
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.

fraternie (907) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2001
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.
