Nose of fresh cereal malt and a hint of spicy hops. Pours a cloudy honey amber with floating mothers. The huge creamy light off-white head is fully lasting with tremendous lacing. The sweet flavor has no acidity and finishes lightly toasted. The light, creamy and soft body is exceptionally smooth.

Pleasant and full-bodied lager, slightly above average. Still, nothing special so why settle for this when Sam. Smith brews so many other interesting beers?

A golden beer with an OK head. The aroma is light with notes of malt. The flavor is nice with a good malt and very bitter - like a czech pilsener. All in all an average pilsener - OK but nothing special.

Golden color with a creamy, thick head. Nice malt/hops taste. As far as lagers go I'd still take Yuengling over this

Pale golden color with athick creamy head and good lace. Slightly sweet malty aroma with slight fruity accents and a hint of hops. Sweet malt flavor with a hint of hops but not much and a slightly hoppy finish, very good flavor for a lager.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice aroma, I find, with a perfect mix of hops and malt. The flavor focuses on malt with some pleasant floweriness. ’Workmanlike’ comes to mind when describing this beer. Well brewed, but rather uneventful, and this is from a rater who actually likes Helles and pilsners. Someone would need to explain to me why this is a lot better than Heineken.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma, with some faint malt and green hops. Clear golden color, with light effervescence and a decent head. Flavor is malty, lightly sweet and flowery, with some spicy bitterness finding it’s way into the flavor and palate about midpoint. Finish is lightly bitter and clean. Aftertaste is malty, and lightly sweet, but doesn’t last long. Not a bad one, don’t be too afraid to drink it before it really warms up.

Quite smooth and easy to drink. Strong outdoor smell - wet grass, the inside of a petting zoo. Crisp and clean. A sublte sweet maltiness.

Smells grassy, deep amber, pours a large short lived head. Mild caramel flavour, nutty and roasted malts. Good bitterness, a bit light. Average.
