Straw color with abundant carbonation. Aroma of butterscotch and grassy hops. Buttery flavor as well. Lots of diacetyl in this puppy. I enjoyed this less than any other brew from Samuel Smith.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thin, light-yellow lager. Medium-sized, frothy white head. Spotty lacework.
The nose is extremely frail, but lightly floral. Undertones of butter and damp straw.
Well-bittered with hints of grapefruit peel, corn and lime.
Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel.
Short, very astringent finish.

Flat lager appearance with a lager aroma mixed with a German wheat beer. The flavour is lightly hopped. Overall a plain lightly hopped lager.

MGC under a medium off white short lasting head. Mild slighty metallic herbal grassy perfumed hop aroma. Medium thinnish bodied. Short grainy sweet malty start. Longer bitter hoppy middle. Short fading sweeter finish switching to more bitter after taste. Pretty good for a lager.

Sam Smith has yet to dissapoint. This was a nice and slighlty bitter lager. This was some of the best lager that I have ever had, it had a very distinct yeasty or breadlike quality. Good stuff.

Brown bottle...GOOD. Pours yellow and fizzy. Large, fast fading off white head. Aroma of fresh bread. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a little bitterness and finishing lightly spicy and kinda dry. My favorite lager so far.
