Samuel Smith’s Organically Produced Lager

CIMG1864

This old brewery makes quite a few organic beers. We’ve had some controversy stemming from the organic labeling on GTwF, but this beer appears to have organic malt and hops. There are UK organic malts, as well as, organic Vienna malt from Germany and organic hops from New Zealand.

Stats:
Pale Lager. 5.0% ABV. England.

Pale golden color, totally transparent. Actually has some head.

Not too bad a nose. I get a lot of citrus with lemon pulling through a ton. Does have a slight metallic, and grainy aroma. But quite a fruity and slightly sweet nose.

Light to medium bodied, not too bad a mouthfeel.

Grainy and metallic at first, but that fruit shows up after. A lot of lemon, I get some cherries, and some brown sugar, believe it or not. Kinda light around the mid-palate. And the finish doesn’t have much going for it. Leaves the palate way too soon.

It’s an alright beer. Great for hot summer days, but lacks flavor. 80 points.
