Had a pleasant malty presance in both the flavor and aroma. Finished smooth and hoppy with almost a fruity taste to it. petefenelon (26) - ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2003
Crisp but slightly bland, not really a great lager fan and I think this is generally a little overpriced for what it is. Not bad. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2003
not bad, not great, kinda in the middle. one of the poorer efforts by sam smith. pours and looks like budweiser, has little aroma, and an alright flavor. not my fav. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2003
Gold in colour. Aroma is crisp, grassy. Not much in the flavour, light hops, lots of carbonation. Finishes rather bland. The first boring beer that I have had from Samual Smith. silverbullet (17) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
Good head, not overly bubbly. Ambery colour. Aroma is thoroughly mediocre, kind stinky. Not strong, so it's OK. Not much taste, but there is a sour aftertaste. Nice and bubbly, kind of dry.

Dark yellow colour. Actually kind of flat looking. Reminded me of very good synthetic motor oil, and I think that put me off the whole experience. Aroma is certainl;y hoppy with piney. resiny hop. No malt. Also getting grassy, maybe lemony. Pretty one-sided though. Taste is a little bitter, a little dry. Sourish aftertaste which doesn't linger. Really, not the beer for me. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2003
Thin white head and lace. some sweetness evident in the aroma. Bitter tasting, and nice malty flavour. dry finish. Andrew196 (1993) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Our bottle was clear, the one here is brown? A very well made lager, a very nice malty flavor with some subtle hoppiness towards the finish. As it warmed, an unsettling bitterness came out and tainted the beer. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Bottle. Transparent yellow, effervescent for a lager and with a henerous head. Smooth and not very skunky despite the trip across the pond. Crisp, clean, and drinkable. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2003
Color is typical yellow transparant lager color with a decent white head. Taste is smooth with a good bitterness. Overall a nice lager.
