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.

thick lacy head that faded in a minute or two. light color. A pretty good mixture of sweetness and hoppy bitterness. very smooth and easy to drink. I find the Samuel Smith organic brews a little watery, but nice

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Yellow with small head and some lacing, thin-bodied. Floral aroma with a hint of butterscotch. The taste is somewhat sweet with a good balance of hops to clean the palate, fizzy yet creamy too. Still there is a "dirty" feel to this beer which marked it down in my book, too bad for that, otherwise a very good lager.

Clear yellow with healthy white foam. Aroma is invitingly grassy. Taste is mild grassy, some sweetness. Bitterness remains after the swallow. A nice beer, but nothing special.

RobBestwick (972) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2003
sweet hoppy aroma, standard lager appearance, very well balanced, deep malt flavours to begin with followed by a sharp hoppy aftertaste, typical SS feel of quality, best lager ever tasted, marvelous

Smooth and creamy. Malts were full of a nice sweet caramel, great hop balance. Short to medium dry finish.

PorterPounder (8315) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2003
Got this in a Health Food Co-op - didn't know what to expect.
Pleasantly surprised. Malty aroma - thick pillowy white head,
with decent lacing. Cloudy, light orange appearance. Yeasty flavor, that is a tad"off" -but not unpleasant. Stays strong throughout. Not as good as their regular lager,
but a nice novelty.

2.4
Panzuriel (2389) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2003
Nice golden beer with a good aroma. Somewhat malty with hints of fruit. Good malt and hops that finishes tartly. A good beer.

Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2003
Sweet malty aroma. Nice Victorian pint bottle, good persistant rafting foam, darkish dun colored beer. Cidery, malty, with a bit of a tart caste. Palate was a bit watery, and the aftertaste a bit clingy. Needs work.

2.6
mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - MAR 29, 2003
(Mar2003--550mL bottle purchased from "Safe"way)
Thick head, partially receding, active carbonation, no lace.
Clear golden color.
Considerable acetaldehyde (green apple) presence.
Not particularly crisp, feels a bit thin and lifeless. Little to no
hop presence.

3.2
vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Has a light amber color with moderate carbonation and light malt smell. Taste is a pretty balanced malt/hop combo that finishes moderately bitter. Overall not a bad lager, but it is nothing special.
