Pours a clear, pale golden color with huge fluffy, pure white head. The nose is comprised of unripe green grape, earthiness, and a note of banana. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, smooth, and wet. Just a bit of carbonation toward the finish for balance. Speaking of balance. Speaking of balance, a lot of mild flavor that is well-balanced. Not too much of anything. Sweetness on the front of the to the and tartness on the back. Soft notes of banana and bread emerge ever so subtly. Painfully drinkable.

Not sure why I had a half of this: purely to review it I suppose, plus I’d never seen it before: Half pint poured for me by an Australian young lady in the beautiful ‘Citte of Yorke, Holborn, London.
Regular pilsner/lager looks, golden, clear and clean, except it had a solid looking crown of white bubbles on top which almost stayed for the whole review, very un-lager like.
Not much in the nose, some citrusy hints but not otherwise nothing.
This is a fairly sweet lager, certainly sweeter than a typical UK brewed lager/pilsner and I found it refreshing, but only because it became a little drier towards the end of each sip.
Not harsh, but not really smooth either, a bit ‘fizzy’ to be honest: lacked that zing and sharpness this style of drink should have, comes out as a Mr Average in almost all aspects. The alcohol content didn't help its cause to greatly either.

Half-pint on nitro at the Angel in the Fields.
A: Clear gold body under a gorgeous inch of creamy white foam that rises well above the rim of the glass. Tons of ultra-fine bubbles rise through the beer to reinforce the epic (for a half-pint, at least) head. Terrific.
S: Sharply spicy, fruity nose. Pepper, apple, and citrus. Surprising, and fairly pleasant.
T: Fairly sweet + lightly vegetal - both spicy pepper an sweeter bell pepper are noticeable, as well as some herbal, leafy hops on the tail end. Almost reminds me of a white wine (Sauvignon Blanc?). Weird, but not entirely bad.
M: Smooth, light body; all the carbonation seems to have gone to its head.
O: I liked this one less and less as I drank it, largely because it failed to be anywhere near as drinkable as I'd expect from the style. Part of me enjoyed the strangely fruity and spicy characteristics, but they really distracted from what should have been a crisper, more quaffable brew. I would take the Alpine Lager over this any day, and any other Sam Smith's beer over either.
