A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

3.1
dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2003
Golden, with a big, white rocky head., which fades in the glass, leaving a slight lacing. Slightly sweet, fruity aroma with no hint of hop at all. Initially a sweet taste, with bitter/crispness following, and then a drying finish. No real hop flavour which left me somewhat dissappointed, but generally a pleasant enough brew.

beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2003
The first thing I noticed was that this was definitely sweeter than the regular Sam Smith's lager. Had a good malty flavor with some leafy-green flavors to it. Decent hop presence, but not quite as prevalent as the regular lager.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2003
Bottled. Golden beer with a shiny white head, serviced well from beneath. Light, corn syrup aroma with some twisted, feral hop notes as well. Slightly cheep corn syrup flavour but I guess you could try and pass it off for Organic. Full well rounded mouth feel. Decent bitter finish.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Papery, as most of the lighter fare Sam Smith beers seem to be. Light malt and tea flavors, even a bit tobacco-ish. Nice amount of hops at the end, that flowery, dry, bitter sort of hops. Not a great beer, but nothing too offensive.

2.4
SilkTork (5725) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2003
Pastuerised bottle. An acceptable global lager from Britain's expert in pastuerised beer. Good mouthfeel with moderate malt awareness and a light but crisp hop finish. Made more enjoyable for being drunk while watching England win the Rugby World Cup!

3.1
bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2003
Nice white frothy head on this golden coloured lager.Hoppy doughy aroma and a nice light bitterness balances out the malt flavours.

2.4
fiulijn (20372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Blond to golden color; big head. Strange aroma: white sugar, hay, paper. Some malt taste, quite round, light honey. Short finish, yet correctly bitter. There was no need to propose this Organic brew

3.3
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2003
(Bottle) Good tasting lager with hints of flowers, grass, honey, and nuts. Pours light yellow with a medium sized head.

3.6
hopscotch (11043) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Crystal clear, yellow lager. Huge, frothy, white head which evolves into a small, creamy, swirling head. Spotty lacing. Spicy, peppery, hoppy notes with some mild, malty notes... straw and English toffee. Also a touch floral and citrusy. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of bittering hops. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, astringent finish.

3.3
drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2003
The Sammy Smith lager is one of the first I ever had the pleasure of enjoying. I've been notoriously against most lagers, but this may have been the turning point for me. Not a fabulous beer by any means but very smooth and refreshing with some nice grains in there and a slight wave of hops for great mouthfeel. You can taste the maturity in most of Sammy Smith beers, and this is no different.
