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.

harrisoni (17474) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled at The Champion, London Xmas Pub Crawl. Gold with thin white head. Some acids, some lemon,a bit bland really. Saving grace si the finish which is really quite pleasant, even has some juicy malt/fruit. Best of the 3 Sam Smiths lagers that we had

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2008
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a white head. Light citrusy nose, sweetish malty notes, and quite fruity. Fruity, slightly grainy flavor with some bitterness. Medium body, and a short, fruity finish. A quite pleasant one, especially considering it being a pale lager, but thats it. (080305)

(Bottled 355 ml). Clear golden color, decent white head. Lemony, dish cleanser aroma. A bit fizzy. Sligfhtly grainy malty backbone. Light citrusy hops. Oily. Above an average bulk lager.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2002
Light amber; grassy, mossy aroma; slightly tinny, cracker-like maltiness; ~24 IBUs hiding underneath earthy overtones. Todays B.S. quote of the week "tightly fused flavours".

Dedollewaitor (15684) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2007
55cl bottle: Clear see through yellow with a good egg white head. Aroma & taste is clean & crisp of malts & hops. Very delicious. Smooth mouthfeel. Very mild & pleasant. If this was the standard quality for lagers I would probably hang out with my mates all the time!

Bottle at K10. Weak fruity aroma. Clear shiny yellow colour. Very small white head. Dull, but clean.

bhensonb (14335) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Surprising fruit aroma, more like a light ale. Brassy color with a firm white head that somewhat laces. Firm mouthfeel, reasonable level of carbonation, and some nice hop at the start. The finish could have more hop, but at least the common lager "rice" impact is hardly detectable. Could fool me into thinking I was drinking ale. Except after a while a lager corniness pops up a little. Decent as lagers tend to get. Crisp. Clean.
