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.

Why not help to save the Earth one pint at a time? This is a very nice beer thatís 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 lager has a very pretty clear gold appearance, but beyond that itís not particularly remarkable. The taste isnít bad, but is somehow lacking. This is my least favorite of Sam Smithís generally excellent brews.

Thin lager, light brown coloring, not dense. Decent beer that doesn't overwhelm in taste and texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well, no doubt in my mind that this is one of the best light lagers out there. Itís a quaffer, so just a little cereal presence on the nose. The palate is light but very balanced with just enough sweetness to temper the slight bitterness. In other words, light years ahead of other lagers. A good dose of fizziness to help you wash down whatever dish you are pairing it with (hopefully greasy and in front of a widescreen TV with football on it). Keep a six pack in your fridge in case your buddies come over and ask for Bud Light, MGD, Corona, or Heineken (yuck!).

Typical lager. Smell and taste was very similar to Corona. Not very impressive. Very drinkable however it is too similar to other domestic lagers. Nice session.

This actually has some flavor for a lager. Malt breadiness hits you at the first gulp with a crisp hoppy clean finish. good pale golden color with a decent white head. SS has never disappointed me. always high caliber high quality. A little expensive for a "normal" brew

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Poured into a lager glass. Seeing some negative reviews here but I was marginally impressed with this beer. Relaxed and smooth with no lingering chemical tastes, perhaps a result of the organic ingredients. The beer doesnít sit with you with delayed flavors, but assimilates with you quickly. Maybe that doesnít make any sense, but that was the feeling.

From the Bottle: Pale and smooth with a moderate head that dissipates surprisingly quickly. A light, sweet and smooth flavor was inviting but not superlative. Finishes is clean and smooth.

Pours out a clear golden colour with a nice frothy head. Scent is sweet. Taste is very lightly hopped at first and then quickly proceeds into a honey and malt combo which ends in mostly just the malt with a hint of sweetness on the palate. Above average character in comparision to alot of lagers I have thus encountered.
