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.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Deep yellow, almost golden colour. Slight white head. Well balanced aroma - sweet malt and dry hoppy scent. Flavour is slightly bitter with a slight grassy / grainy finish. Malt taste lingers on the palate.

beautiful beer...golden with a generous head and some lacing. aroma and flavor are both what i'd describe as very "grainy". i've used this term a million times and couldnt exactly describe it if i had to, but it seems to fit my description (at least in my own mind). what i would classify as an extremely dry beer...virtually no sweetness there at all.

This brew poured a small head of mostly diminishing fiely sized white bubbles that left behind a light yellow gold colored body that was softly carbonated. It had a mild hop aroma and a nice smooth palate as well as a mild malt hop flavor. I really enjoyed drinking this brew and it went down very easily.

Dayton, OH AleFest:A light bodied beer whose palate was smooth and somewhat thin.It had a small size white head that contained fine sized bubbles that mostly diminished.The body was clear and there was carbonation observed.The nose was malty, fruity and sweet with a light bitter flavoring.There was nothing really all that special about this beer as it needs to have more character in order for it to be an enjoyable beer in my opinion.

Had a pleasant malty presance in both the flavor and aroma. Finished smooth and hoppy with almost a fruity taste to it.

Crisp but slightly bland, not really a great lager fan and I think this is generally a little overpriced for what it is. Not bad.

not bad, not great, kinda in the middle. one of the poorer efforts by sam smith. pours and looks like budweiser, has little aroma, and an alright flavor. not my fav.

Gold in colour. Aroma is crisp, grassy. Not much in the flavour, light hops, lots of carbonation. Finishes rather bland. The first boring beer that I have had from Samual Smith.

Good head, not overly bubbly. Ambery colour. Aroma is thoroughly mediocre, kind stinky. Not strong, so it's OK. Not much taste, but there is a sour aftertaste. Nice and bubbly, kind of dry.

Dark yellow colour. Actually kind of flat looking. Reminded me of very good synthetic motor oil, and I think that put me off the whole experience. Aroma is certainl;y hoppy with piney. resiny hop. No malt. Also getting grassy, maybe lemony. Pretty one-sided though. Taste is a little bitter, a little dry. Sourish aftertaste which doesn't linger. Really, not the beer for me.
