Samuel Smith’s Pure Brewed Lager Beer

What’s this all about then? I have to laugh at the style that BA lists this as, “Euro Pale Lager”. Of course, Americans are still under the impression that England is part of Europe in a way that reaches beyond geography, when *we* all know that anything that comes out of Yorkshire is likely to be as un-Eurpoean as a trip to Walmart in Villa Rica,GA. Anyway, back to the beer.

Crystal clear yellow, with a very large attractive head. Extremely smooth (which is good) without a hint of skunk or for that matter much aroma or taste at all. This beer looks great, and is very smooth going down, with no offensive alcohol, skunk, bitterness or nasty lager chemical taste, but it is so smooth it seems to lack personality or character. I think Smith’s would be better off leaving this style to the real Europeans, I see no reason why they should attempt this.
