rich and hardy for an ale. Good flavor but not really a 'drinking' beer. me liked loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - JUL 26, 2002
Just a tad bit heavier in body than their Organic Lager. Slightly more malt flavor. Otherwise very similar. Pretty golden color with a nice thick head. Easy drinkin' Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2002
I've had this twice, - the first one was totally funked up; the second was better, but bland. the body is thin-thick - I mean that it had some maltiness, but was watery. Hardly any hop to help balance it. overall, it was disappointing. jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2002
Copper to amber color with a rather frothy off-white head. Aromas of carmel and nuts. Flavor profile was chocolate and caramel with a salty bitterness. NIce, but rather disappointing when you consider the source. MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2002
Fruity hop aroma, golden color, light body..................................

Rather plain and ordinary for a Samuel Smith ale. Smelled like an English ale but did not have much more flavor than Coors original. I was quite let down by this one. rauchbier (3922) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2002
For a strong ale it seems to lack flavour. fruity malt aroma and flavour and a forgetable finish. ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Malty and WATERY.. Needs some flavor. Needs a kick in the butt to wake it up. And needs more hops austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 8, 2002
The most disappointing of Smith's products. Clear. Nice head, very bitter, and somewhat malty. But wholly unremarkable. Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - JUN 6, 2002
Wasn't what to expect. But it was pretty good. Nothing spectacular. Interesting aroma.
