Clear pale golden pour with small ring of white that laces somewhat. Aroma is wonderful bready semisweet malty goodness. Flavor follows nose yet somehow even better. One of the tastiest lagers I've ever encountered, this stuff is delicious. Finish is clean with an ever-so-slight lingering sweet note. Love it - simple, tasty!

poured into a pilsner glass.

appearance: a beautiful slightly opaque golden straw color with a 2 inch head on top. the head is white and fluffy but the bubbles are very dense. the head sticks around awhile and leaves nice lacing.

smell: the primary smell is bready and a little sweet. it's rounded off by a slight floral dankness. has notes of caramel.

taste: nice clean and crisp lager. the taste as it hits the tongue is sweet with a sharp hoppy bite. as it continues, the hoppiness mellows out and gives way to the toasty malted goodness. finishing off the experience is a gentle bitterness in the back of the throat.

feel: noticeable carbonation, but super smooth nonetheless. a bit oily as it goes down but it's got a relatively light body that works quite well to make it super crisp.

overall: a little more hop forward than a helles or a k├Âlsch, it still retains a great malty body and a very nice clean taste and feeling. it's pricier than a 6 pack, weighing in at about $5 for a 22oz bottle, but it's definitely worth it in my eyes. bottom line: this is a great lager and samuel smith brewery has yet to disappoint me.

One of the best lagers I've had. Tasteful, clean, crisp, good balance of everything. Outstanding

Wanted better. A bit skunky and bitter for my taste. Still, reasonably good beer but not as good as others they make

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 550 mL bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Nice ring of lacing.

S: Toasted grains... lager yeast and floral hops.

T/F: Follows the nose. Light malts and grains. A little grassy... hopping gives some floral and herbal notes. Very modest bitterness. Light bodied... good carbonation. Crisp and clean. The finish is grains and more of the floral/spicey hops.

O: A really nice easy drinking lager. Nothing fancy... just a well crafted beer. One I'd definitely have again.

From Latiendadelacerveza. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 2. I suppose this is as good as euro pale lagers can be. Clean and refreshing maltyness with plenty of grassy bitterness but still dull and watery

Wow! pale lagers don't get much better than this here folks. This taste pure brewed & organic just as the label says it is. You ought to go out & get your hands on some of this if you are able to. Samuel Smith would probably do better if they put bottled on dates instead of that julian code. I usually don't like organic beers but this was good. Cheers! A-

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 355ml bottle into glass. Date stamping on bottle is 'SE04Q1', which puts this in May of 2017.
Clear, straw colored body. A little bit of an off white, fizzy head upon pouring settles away to a bubble fed ring and some bursting islands.
Lots of yeast in the smell, which kind of smells like grain dust.
The flavor is rather sweet, and crisp. The malt and yeast combine for a slightly spicy and fruity taste. Has that slightly sour lager flavor.
Thin mouth feel, with fizzy carbonation levels.
Easy to drink, refreshing lager. Would rather try a more recently bottled example, but these are often difficult to find.
