A: Copper colored with good clarity; frothy tan head with medium lacing. Very inviting.
S: Very little nose to speak of.
T: Rather bland with little evident maltiness, bitterness or flavor notes. I've had tastier light lagers.
M: Medium body, good retention of effervescence. Besides the color, mouthfeel best characteristic.
O: Rather a disappointment from Samuel Smith. Could be a flat our convenience beer.

Copper color. Aroma is nondescript, barley water. ....beer. Crisp refreshing ale with flavor. Caramel, barley, wheat, light citrus. A good beer to wash down some pizza.

Nice fruity aroma from a nice English yeast. Very nice earthy aroma from the English hops. Overall, a really pleasant beer that I always aspire to brew on my own.
