18.7 oz. bottle. Samuel Smithís 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 Smithís Organic Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, ultra drinkable, and mostly dry. Overall, this is a most excellent beer! RJT

Iíve been drinking Samuel Smith ales since the early 1990s but only now tried this and itís wonderful. Deep golden with a thick, dense, lasting white head that leaves some lacing, its aroma is a strong pale-lager aroma, malt, grain, a bit flowery, with a musty dust element. The taste is very nice, again a strong, full-bodied pale lager taste: grain, bitter and sweet balance, flowery a bit on the hoppy side for the style, with strong malt taste transitioning into a pleasantly bitter, hoppy finish. It is refreshing and tasty, very smooth and drinkable.

Pours a beautiful, deep gold with a nice white head. Aroma is slightly sweet whitebread and malts. The taste starts out surprisingly malty and finishes with a slight hop twinge. A superb lager, absolutely delicious.

This beer pours into the glass like a hurricane of tasty looking amber liquid. Looks good to me! Smells of hops and grains, quite pleasant. Flavor is nce, kind of bland, but something that you can sit around with. I really enjoy Samuel Smith's organic line.

That was a really good beer. Light pale color, great taste and aroma. Nice slightly sweet malt with the perfect hoppy balance. Wonderful aftertaste. Loved this beer and recommend it.

Despite getting a Sam Smithís Organic Lager when I actually ordered an Organic Ale (donít know if I would have tried the lager otherwise), I was thrilled when I actually tasted this beer. Which says a lot-- Iíve never once before had a non-skunk Sam Smith. But this place (The Other Side Cafe) seems to know how to keep its beer, so I thought Iíd give it another try. This beer poured a brilliant (and I mean totally sparkling clear) golden color with a small white head. Aroma was intriguingly malty and faintly hoppy. Iíve always found lagers to be too thin for my taste, and Iíd simply determined that I wasnít a fan of the style, but this makes me think twice. Huge malt flavor, sweet, full-bodied, and very clean-- no sulfur or other off-flavors, just malt and hops. Super pale! Carbonation was refreshing, and there was a faint noble hop flavor on the backend. Amazing, outstanding beer. I would probably go for this more often if it werenít $6 a bottle in Boston. I know that this doesnít taste like a typical lager, but as a BEER, I like it.

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