Excellent lager, very idiosyncratic hoppy, lemony aroma, good carbonation, very refreshing, clearly English bitter or maybe pale ale influenced the brewers at Sam Smith’s when they came up with this. And an equally idiosyncratic label, too.

yellow body, fully diminishing white head, uninteresting slightly repugnant aroma.

A touch too much carbonation for my liking although others may disagree. Left a lingering hint of malt. For the price I think you could find a little better brew. I was just a hair bit disappointed but I still enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 A good lager.. but then again it’s still a lager. Thin head, decent flavor, but overall this won’t be a memorable beer.

Agradable lager sin voluntad de impactar, no tiene un aroma intenso y en boca es suave y agradable, espumosa, cremosa, punto freso de lúpulo lejano, una lager para tener a mano y disfrutar

London, England. Getting out at the Embankment Tube, I walked for a bit, bought some books and stopped at a pub. Enjoyed this Samuel Smiths at the Cheshire Cheese, with a delicious order of fish and chips. Give or take 15 packages of catsup I used on the chips. The Cheshire Cheese is a pub that has been standing for almost 500 years, give or take the great fire of London in 1666. Awesome, I was reading Dickens as I waited for my food. Not quite 2 pounds for the pint, the fish and chips on the other hand where about 7 pounds. Cheers!

Very clear and bright golden. Nose of hay and light malts. Flavor follows the same as the nose and finishes with a slight hop bitterness. Good for washing down pizza.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light golden color that produced a large bubbly head. Malts and yeast in aroma. Destinctive lager yeast creates a heavy mouthfeel and simple malt flavor. Interesting low-key bitter hop finish.
