3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Poured pale yellow with thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of bread and grass. Light bodied, sweet up front, short lasting flavor. Overall, a slightly above average lager, probably much better from the source.
550 ml. bottle. Pours a clear dull gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, grain, straw, and a touch of citrus. Would work well on a hot day. Bill Becker (1775) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Sept 2005
Poured nice with a decent head and very nice gold color.
A bit weak in malt and hops but pretty well balanced.
This is my first organic and I'm not sure how that helps the beer overall but this one is pretty darned drinkable so I'll buy it again and for the US$3.07 price tag, it's a pretty good bargain.
Update: I'm enjoying another bottle of this very nice lager.
It poured(room temp) a light gold with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly.
The smell is sweet with some fruitness.
The taste is fairly hoppy at the start and then the malt moves in and creates a balance that makes this lager a pleasure to drink.

Nice carbonation the taste has the sam smiths old brew metallic tinge and copper colour. Apart from that its a decent dry lager. Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Keg at Glasshouse Stores, Soho. It pours clear yellow with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is rather, soft, sweet, white bread, white sugar, toasty grain and rich tea biscuit. The taste is crisp, clean, fluffy, soft, mellow sweetness, doughy, white bread, honey suckle and straw with a soft finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Well rounded and pretty drinkable. Decent enough lagerbier.

Single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma and flavor of toasted malt, mild hops and a light earthy grassiness. Clean, smooth and easy to drink overall. gripweed57 (2863) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Pale gold color. Big foamy white head. Slightly dry, malty aroma. Delicious zesty malt flavor with a hint of herbal hops. Dry finish has a lovely hop character. Long dry aftertaste. Well rounded and full bodied. Unique for a lager, but Sam Smith quality prevails again. Scipio (1215) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Pours a thin, clear, yellowish golden with a full white head that settles pretty quickly. The aroma has a lot of grain, and I usually don’t like that. Additionally, its mildly floral, with straw, corn, and some weak honey. The taste is slightly bitter. The flavors that are promoted are a lot like the nose, but the heavy graininess isn’t found. Instead, we now get a lot of bread. Even if that isn’t exciting, I’ll happily take bread over grain. Floral aftertaste. Light to medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. This is unimpressive. Jury (288) - RUSSIA - APR 26, 2017

550 ml bottle at home. Poured a big white head and looks golden in color. Kind of carbonated. Smooth. Hay in taste. A little different but overall above average!
