Not much aroma at all--light bitterness. See through golden color with a light palate. Lightly hopped flavor with a weak malt presence. Very bland.

A sub par lager to say the least. Not much positive I can say about this beer. Aroma was weak. Could pick up some skunk and light malt. Pour was a light gold with a fluffy one finger white head. Taste was a little flat with some malt shining through. Not enough carbonation but a nice somewhat hoppy aftertaste. All in all, though, this is the worst beer I’ve had from this brewer.

Couldn’t tell you what it smells or looks like as it always seems to be in a bottle, served with out a glass. Crisper and cleaner tasting than the Alpine Larger, its ok, I suppose. Wouldn’t go crazy on it.

Pours a light gold cloudy color. Aroma is of watered down malts and orange peels. Flavor is very light and almost seems a little watered down. Leaves a malt hop finish.

Keg @ Wortley Almshouses. Fizzy as hell lager yellow with an impressive head. Smells of barley and bitter hop. Disappointing taste bordering on the outright unpleasant. Sour and full of wrong turns throughout the profile. Unwelcome aftertaste. Better than Stella... just...

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

Not much to say, that the commercial description does not already cover. The appearance is clear and yellow, with a fizzy soda head. The aroma is malty and bready, with alot of grass. The flavor is lightly astringent, with a really bad aftertaste. I did not care for this one, but then again I have never been a big fan of lagers.

Pale yellow, with a decent head. Smells like a grassy, wheaty beer with hints of banana. Flavor is tart, grassy, and plain. Finishes bitter and slightly dry. So far, the only brew from Sam Smith’s that i didn’t particularly care for.

Clear golden with a fine snow white head. Grainy aroma with hoppy hints. Fresh flavor, hop and flower with a good bitterness. An all right lager but.....

I was hoping for alot more for 3.85 a bottle. Wonderful lable, good job it sold the beer. One thing though, I’ll only buy this one once. I’m a little dissipointed. Tasted a little old with that oh so familiar imported skunk aftertaste, however faint. Jst enough to make this beer boring and way overpriced. Oh, well... have to try new stuff once. Suprised to see this from an outstanding brewing co.
