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.

It's wheaty aroma is the strongest thing going for it. Clear yellow color. Minimal flavor. Left me with nothing for palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jnkor (314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Aroma is a bit stale and very yeasty. Color was a cloudy orange with minimal head. Carbonation was flat in the mouth, like drinking water. Yeasty and nothing remarkable about flavor.

18.7 oz. bottle. Samuel Smith’s Organic Lager has a thick, creamy, white head and a slightly hazy, extremely bubbly, straw appearance, leaving lots of thick lacing behind. The aroma is sweet barley malt, biscuit, and just a touch of stinging hops. Taste is wonderful- sweet barley malt, sugar, water, and good hop balance. Mouthfeel is light, and Samuel Smith’s Organic Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, ultra drinkable, and mostly dry. Overall, this is a most excellent beer! RJT

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2012
500mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a creamy white head.. looked good. The aroma picked up bready malt with light accents of honey and apricot.. clean lemon zest and grassy notes around.. very pleasant. The flavor found similar malts at the core (not much fruit, though), with fresh, crisp grass, lemon zest, and a touch of white pepper around.. finished fairly spicy with a hit of carbonation too. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. crisp and well-balanced.. this was a very good drinker.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottled 550ml. -Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation, light malty nose. Malty, slight hoppy and caramel with notes of grass and hint of honey. Boring and nothing special here.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pale yellowish-orange pour with a bright white head. The aroma features clean citrus and slightly sweet smelling malts. The hops really diminish much of the malt presence but the overall character still tastes and seems like a lager. Far from my favorite style of beer but this is nicely done.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2012
On cask at The Kings Arms. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head that dies away early. Aroma of bready yeast, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours with lingering bready yeast again. Mild carbonation and bitterness.

mkel07 (3027) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2012
500ml bottle. A very clear beer with a golden amber colour and a deep full head of pristine white foam. In the glass this beer looks very thin. Grassy notes with some malt and barley coming into the mix also. Thin and light in the mouth with some dryness left on the palate.

Kinda dreary. Looks like piss. Is this as good as a pale lager can get? In which case there’s no need to bother until Mikkeller do one.
