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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle: Yellow/light golden in color with a medium sized white head. Malty and sweet nose with some light grassiness. Very mild in taste with mostly lager malts coming though.

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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of grass and sweet corn. Pours very pale yellow with an inital big foamy head that dies quickly. Medium sweetness with noble hop bitterness riding out on the carbonation waves. Nothing significant about this beer, not really a huge fan.

Draught at Wortley Almshouses, Peterborough, England.
Pale golden colour with small white head.
Grainy malty aroma with some mild citrus notes.
Grainy malt and some mild citrusy hops in flavour.
Nothing interesting I’m afraid.

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.

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.
