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

Ive 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.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2002
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.

For a strong ale it seems to lack flavour. fruity malt aroma and flavour and a forgetable finish.

Malty and WATERY.. Needs some flavor. Needs a kick in the butt to wake it up. And needs more hops

The most disappointing of Smiths products. Clear. Nice head, very bitter, and somewhat malty. But wholly unremarkable.
