4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very attractive golden color. It practically glows. Big foamy head fades to and stays at a nice eight inch in thickness. Slightly hazy. Aroma is mostly malty. Completely clean and appropriately easy drinking. Medium bodied with tiny bubbles of carbonation. This beer is driven by sliky smooth malts but a touch of hops coming out in the finish brings everything together. So refreshing and smooth it practically drinks itself.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2003 Light golden color with a super thick frothy head (took for ever to dissipate so that I could fill the rest of my glass)Nice malt taste with slight bitterness that leads into a nice aftertaste

Good, though not up to par with other Sammy brews. Disappointing in that respect.

light golden, slightly creamy/frothy white head. aroma is malty with hints of wet paper. flavor is very malty with only a faint hint of bitterness. as far as lagers go this one is very good. if this is compared with other lagers alone, i'd probably rate it at least one half point higher.

Has a light golden colour. Head is medium. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavour is sweetish but not distinct. No bitterness in the end. Mediocre lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light pour with little head, aroma was quite sweet, similar to SS IPA. Taste is light and slightly sweet, with a texture that is average. Not so bad on your tongue, with right amount of carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is good "drinkin" beer. Much more malty and complex than most lagers. Refreshing with a dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolutely clear and golden, light carbonation, fully diminishing head. Fresh aroma of buttered bread (dinner rolls) and honey. Lots of soft, pale malt, and lightly bitter, this is a very tasty lager. My only complaint that the texture is a bit watery. Also, one of the most attractive bottle/labels I’ve seen lately, with a really cool gold and green foil hops motif around the neck.
