COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
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.

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2003
thick lacy head that faded in a minute or two. light color. A pretty good mixture of sweetness and hoppy bitterness. very smooth and easy to drink. I find the Samuel Smith organic brews a little watery, but nice

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Yellow with small head and some lacing, thin-bodied. Floral aroma with a hint of butterscotch. The taste is somewhat sweet with a good balance of hops to clean the palate, fizzy yet creamy too. Still there is a "dirty" feel to this beer which marked it down in my book, too bad for that, otherwise a very good lager.

Clear yellow with healthy white foam. Aroma is invitingly grassy. Taste is mild grassy, some sweetness. Bitterness remains after the swallow. A nice beer, but nothing special.

RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2003
sweet hoppy aroma, standard lager appearance, very well balanced, deep malt flavours to begin with followed by a sharp hoppy aftertaste, typical SS feel of quality, best lager ever tasted, marvelous

Smooth and creamy. Malts were full of a nice sweet caramel, great hop balance. Short to medium dry finish.

PorterPounder (5449) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2003
Got this in a Health Food Co-op - didn't know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Malty aroma - thick pillowy white head, with decent lacing. Cloudy, light orange appearance. Yeasty flavor, that is a tad"off" -but not unpleasant. Stays strong throughout. Not as good as their regular lager, but a nice novelty.

Panzuriel (1295) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2003
Nice golden beer with a good aroma. Somewhat malty with hints of fruit. Good malt and hops that finishes tartly. A good beer.

Aurelius (4106) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2003
Sweet malty aroma. Nice Victorian pint bottle, good persistant rafting foam, darkish dun colored beer. Cidery, malty, with a bit of a tart caste. Palate was a bit watery, and the aftertaste a bit clingy. Needs work.
