look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- pours a brilliant golden color with a great white head of three fingers. A lot of bubbles, so good carbonation. As head fades, there is a nice cling around the sides of the glass.

Smell-there is a slight bread smell with a hint of hops coming through. Not strong and not complex to the nose. Seems simple and very light.

Taste-where the beer lacks in smell, it makes up for in taste! The malty goodness hits first followed by hops. Though a hearty malt flavor, it's just right. Great balance in flavor. Seems to be made from simple, basic ingredients but Samuel Smith has been able to bring out full flavor in this beer.

Mouthfeel- light and smooth. Can really feel the carbonation on the tongue. Has a nice linger, not too much and not little. Very drinkable and very refreshing.

Overall, I am very much a fan of this lager-quickly becoming one of my favorites! Highly recommend this one.
