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.

I prefer the Pure Brewed Lager over this find, but I was pleasantly surprised. Still worthy of bearing the name.

Light golden colour. Nice hoppy aroma, and mild round flavour. Lightly bitter in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 Light sulfury nose. Light grainy flavor, with a sweetish finish.

Not a lager fan, but this is pretty good, quite sweet, mild hop profile, not spectacular but very drinkable

Not so great lager from a great brewer. Decent enough, drinkable, but I would not go out of my way for it. The Pure Brewed lager is better.

Aroma light tangy/hoppy; color standard-issue lager- gold with decent white head and retention. Taste is light with familiar tangy hop profile. Body is better than most light lagers. Finish citrusy-dry that is especially felt way in the back of the palate. Not much malt contribution here (save for some body enhancement). Carbonation also on the light side. On the whole, very refreshing stuff--nothing very complex, mind you, but good basic quality, as one comes to expect of the Smith operation.

Very similar to their Lager Beer. The aroma was citrusy, but the taste did not seem to deliver. It seemed a little watery, and too sweet. I definetely would drink this over the standard American lager, but compared to Samuel Smith’s other beers, this one is not very good.

Fruity and good, though a bit light for my taste. Cool idea though, certainly better than anything wolavers has to offer. Id stil go with the Sams natural brewed lager though.

Why not help to save the Earth one pint at a time? This is a very nice beer that’s gotten a bad rap. An interesting malt flavor combines with a charismatic (if not really bitter) hop character to create a very nice balance. Maybe a little light for the standard Sam Smith drinker, but also very clean. Cheers!

This is a decent run-of-the-mill lager. Not as good as I expected from Sam Smith’s.
