Pours a nice clear yellow a little darker than most lagers. Some aromas of corn and english hops. Flavor is full and finishes dry with a little pucker at the end. This is my favorite lager and is right on par for style. Smooth and drinkable but with flavor.

Not a huge lager fan but this is really up there on my list for lagers probably. Although its hard to compare different styles of beers I feel like lagers just are not up to par and for a lager it is supeior to others.

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.

rather light color, with a distinct aroma that reminds me of a fresh loaf of bread. decent hops flavor that had hints of yeast in it. overall, flavor was not what I expected from the aroma.

The taste of this beer is quite good. I think the Organic aspect of it is quite interesting

Disappointing. I had I high hopes because other Sammy Smith’s (Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout) are so good. This one is bland and, except for its unusual smoothness, I probably couldn’t differentiate it from a cheap domestic lager. Bummer

I tasted that lager on Christmas Eve. I usually enjoy Samuel Smith, and this one was no exception. It has a lemony taste but overall, not a bad lager.

As a lager drinker who believes we take in too many unnecessary chemicals , I had high hopes for this .Alas ,I was let down. It poured an extremely pale gold,though the head was decent.The flavor was balanced , but weak, and very little carbonation . I did a side by side with their pure brewed lager and it is a much better beer.Good idea that didn’t pan out, at least for me .

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.

Has a light hop aroma. Huge frothy white head, transparent gold in color. Taste is clean, lightly bitter, with an average finish. Body is light, dry texture, soft carbonation.
