A crisper version of any half decent American Standard. I could drink this Lager all the time if it was thirteen bucks a case.

Pretty good lager. Nice malt flavor, good color. Not the best of Samuel Smith's brews, but still very good.

Under-age drinking at its best, my parents have left for the day and I'm on my first of 3 samples. First thing I noticed was the beautiful lacey, white head, which lasted until the beer was gone. The color, however was hardly impressive, thin pale yellow, like the urine from a well hydrated dog. The nose is hoppy and malty, slightly tart. Good amount of carbonation. The flavor has a slight hop bitterness, it has more depth than many other lagers, but is still a pretty straight forward brew, no real surprises. This beer is so expensive I feel like I should be wearing a top hat and a monocle when I drink it. If you have the money to spend on this, skip this one and pick up one of Sammy's stouts or the nut brown.

Sweet, malty nose. Chewy, noticeable texture with an active carbonation from start to finish. Slight alcohol nip. Very mild hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable and noncloying.

For all of its hype, I thought that it was a very thin brewed lager, I was expecting much more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty nutty aroma. Usual pil/lager appearance with foamy white head. Malty flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. To be honest its a bit thin only a slightly above average lager, SS should stick to making quality ales. The Germans and Czechs are the best at this sort of beer.

For a person who doesn't like lagers I was very impressed by the soft buttery nature of this brew. Quite subtle and quite delicious. Like a fresh meadow in Springtime.
