Only the 2nd Sam Smiths brew Ive tried. The other one being the Oatmeal Stout. Stick with their Stouts. This beer wasnt bad but nothing special either.

Not much flavour, quite bitter but its a bit edgy in taste, not great.

Nice pale color with plentiful head and generous lace. Great aroma with a sweet malty flavor. Very good brew in my opinion. Not sure if I am rating the same beer as everyone else...mine says Organic Ale..not Organic Best Ale.

Pretty dull. Maybe all those pesticides are what make beer great. You think?

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Bottle: Hazy orange with a thin white head, oranges and dirt in the aroma, starts and ends lightly bitter, thin bodied with a unpleasant aftertaste. Am I rating the same beer as everyone else? Without a doubt the most disappointed Ive been with a Sam Smiths.

Extremely drinkable and well balanced. Doesnt distinguish itself like most Sam Smith beers, but of very high quality.

Another enjoyable brew from Samuel Smiths...lighter in body than the pale ale, less malt and hops, but an easy drinking and enjoyable beer.
