Our bottle was clear, the one here is brown? A very well made lager, a very nice malty flavor with some subtle hoppiness towards the finish. As it warmed, an unsettling bitterness came out and tainted the beer.

Bottle. Transparent yellow, effervescent for a lager and with a henerous head. Smooth and not very skunky despite the trip across the pond. Crisp, clean, and drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sparkling light golden color. The nose is fruity with some grass and a little bit of sweet malt. The body is candyish with some light grassy hops kicking in at the end. Boring and, I think, forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, clear olden colour with an orangish hue and a big, fluffy white head. Very fresh and pleasing aroma with grassy, fruity and soft hop notes. Sweet malt in the beginning kicks off the flavour well, but it's begging for some more hops in the finish to really wrap it up nicely. Still a very decent and refreshing lager, though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
You must love this soft hoppy aroma , large white head , lightly sparkling brew . Interestingly made: at front malty then slightly bitter and with touch of organic vegetables. Creamy mouthfeel , maybe a bit to heavy for lager to be very refreshing .

Fine yellow. Great head. Has a pleasent aroma of grass/barley-field. Goes in the flavor too. One of the better S. Smith's.
