A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Papery, as most of the lighter fare Sam Smith beers seem to be. Light malt and tea flavors, even a bit tobacco-ish. Nice amount of hops at the end, that flowery, dry, bitter sort of hops. Not a great beer, but nothing too offensive.

Pastuerised bottle. An acceptable global lager from Britain's expert in pastuerised beer. Good mouthfeel with moderate malt awareness and a light but crisp hop finish. Made more enjoyable for being drunk while watching England win the Rugby World Cup!

Nice white frothy head on this golden coloured lager.Hoppy doughy aroma and a nice light bitterness balances out the malt flavours.

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Blond to golden color; big head. Strange aroma: white sugar, hay, paper. Some malt taste, quite round, light honey. Short finish, yet correctly bitter. There was no need to propose this Organic brew…

hopscotch (10658) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Crystal clear, yellow lager. Huge, frothy, white head which evolves into a small, creamy, swirling head. Spotty lacing. Spicy, peppery, hoppy notes with some mild, malty notes... straw and English toffee. Also a touch floral and citrusy. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of bittering hops. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, astringent finish.

The Sammy Smith lager is one of the first I ever had the pleasure of enjoying. I've been notoriously against most lagers, but this may have been the turning point for me. Not a fabulous beer by any means but very smooth and refreshing with some nice grains in there and a slight wave of hops for great mouthfeel. You can taste the maturity in most of Sammy Smith beers, and this is no different.

Crystal clear straw color with a lazy effervescent body and foamy white head. An attractive beer. Aroma of flowers, hay, nuts, and honey. Flavor is a combination of grassy herbs and skunk with a crisp bitterness. Slightly chalky with a mouthfeel quality that reminds me of saccharin.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2003
MGC under a medium size lasting pale pale yellow creamy head. Short faint fresh fruity hops dulling quickly to mild malt staler hop aroma. Slight more fruity aroma as it warms. Medium light hoppy bitter start with decent longish biscuity griany malt middle. Soft malty finish with touch of bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a lager.

Earthy malt nose. Usual lager appearance. Sweet malty taste with strong citrus tones. Hoppy finish. Not much else to report, Far too sweet for a lager.
