Malty bright yellow lager. Body is extremely lively. Taste is malty sweetness and caramel. Head is typical of a macro - artificial. One is OK but no more.

Very well made and crafted brew, Sam Smith is a very good brewery and this is one of their best. Great full bodied beer and nice malted mix.

A nice lager but still a lager. A bit too fizzy for me. Buttery honey taste. Lovely light golden colour. Smooth despite the bubbles.

Tap at Sam Smiths Cock Ravern, London. Pours a clear gold with a good amount of carbonation present. Aroma has a hint of bread an a bit of corn. Sweet, with honey and a little lemon. A little bit astringent but it's OK.

Not what I was expecting. Really rather dry. Not tasteless but just dry. Okay for a quick, cool me down summer beer but really too expensive for that. Not going back to this any time soon.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on Tap at The White Horse, Soho, London (£5.50):
Corn and lager hops with some sweetness and background fruits, mainly apple smelling though. There is some light citrus and overall the beer is quite weak on the nose.
Golden straw with a 0.5cm foamy white and holds well. The beer is clear and leave some lacing on the glass.
Bland tasting with some light fruits, some corn and a medium bitterness running through it. There is some apples and a few basic hops but not much other than that.
Grainy on the palate with some semi-bitterness coming through on top of a relatively bland mouthfeel that starts sweet but quickly fades. The beer has a medium to light body and moderate carbonation.
A poor offering here and this one was especially given the reputation of the brewery and the fact I was expecting a lot better. This one was a very average beer that had nothing memorable about it and didn’t do anything to grab my attention.
