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.

Sort of boring for a Sammy. Sort of hoppy and fruity, not as cool as the others.

550mL bottle. Pours very clear, light golden with a frothy white head, good retention. Smells of corn. Very light malty taste, little bitterness, bit sweet, taste is way better than aroma. Though it does have a bit of a corn finish. Very little body, slightly slick texture, medium-high carbonation.

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

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pours a beautiful, deep gold with a nice white head. Aroma is slightly sweet whitebread and malts. The taste starts out surprisingly malty and finishes with a slight hop twinge. A superb lager, absolutely delicious.

A very attractive gold color. Very light. A subtle, slightly grainy nose. Pleasantly bubbly, and a nice malty sweetness. Very light taste (to compliment the color), almost laughable, almost a weak Pilsner -- BUT still so much better than an American mass-produced (more hops, for sure). I believe the consensus was, good for a pitcher, along with oily fish, pizza, or perhaps mild Indian food.

Not real smooth or crisp. Way too hoppy for a lager (in my opinion). I wish there was a bigger finish. In general, a thin simple lager with no real finish or complexity. Not bad, just not what I was expecting. It is good for an organic brew (clear and foamy) with no grain.

Mirage52 (147) - New Market, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured from the bottle a standard golden lager color with a poofy white head. Taste is somewhat normal -- fizzy and medium bodied -- nothing too distinguishing, until the somewhat spicy and hoppy aftertaste. Nothing too offensive, but this beer does have a nice little kick at the end, which may give novice beer drinkers a beer face. I enjoyed it.

Poured from a bottle the beer appears a crystal clear, pale gold color. Grassy aroma with some floral hop notes. Clean crisp flavor with some bitter, then malty and a slight sweet finish. A nicely balanced lager.

gotbeach (139) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle. Clear, yellow, fizzy pour with a bright white head. I could only smell some malt. Tasted like a classic decent lager that was light and easy to drink without a somewhat dry finish. Cheers for going organic!
