4.45/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pale golden yellow, with a moderate head and lacing. Rather average appearance.

Smell: Hoppy and crisp, akin to a good pilsener.

Taste: Bready barley malt in front, then finishes with mild hops. There's a tinge of sweetness. Nicely balanced. More malt character is here than the appearance would indicate.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth. One of the richer bodies I've encountered in a lighter lager.

Drinkability: This is really the ideal session beer. There's good malt flavor, good hop flavor, it's smooth, thirst quenching, and not filling.

Notes: I have to admit I was a little skeptical of a pale organic lager. I should have known better. Apparently, Samuel Smith can do no wrong.

4.01/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a clear golden yellow with very little white head that quickly receded to a ring of white. Abundant carbonation bubbles could be seen going up the glass. Very nice looking and true to style. Scents of lager yeast, grainy malt and slight earthy hops. A simple but well rounded and bright aroma, very suitable to the style, quite pleasant. Taste begins with sweet malt, moving into some grainy and bready malt in the middle, before finishing with sweet malt and slight hints of hops. The aftertaste is sweet, with faint undertones of herbal, earthy hops. A good, crisp, bright flavor, befitting a pale lager. Maybe a touch on the sweet side and needing a little bit more hops, but otherwise quite good. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate-high carbonation and a crisp feel. Very nice, quite easy to drink. Overall this is a good lager with a nice refreshing aroma and flavor profile. My only complaint is the relatively low hop character, but otherwise it's a nice beer.
