COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Bottle. Transparent yellow, effervescent for a lager and with a henerous head. Smooth and not very skunky despite the trip across the pond. Crisp, clean, and drinkable.

Color is typical yellow transparant lager color with a decent white head. Taste is smooth with a good bitterness. Overall a nice lager.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2003
Sparkling gold w/ good sized white head. Soft, fruity, sweet malt aroma. Thin, syrupy body. Watery sweet malt flavour w/ light hop finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Sparkling light golden color. The nose is fruity with some grass and a little bit of sweet malt. The body is candyish with some light grassy hops kicking in at the end. Boring and, I think, forgettable.

GregClow (2881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2003
Nice, clear olden colour with an orangish hue and a big, fluffy white head. Very fresh and pleasing aroma with grassy, fruity and soft hop notes. Sweet malt in the beginning kicks off the flavour well, but it's begging for some more hops in the finish to really wrap it up nicely. Still a very decent and refreshing lager, though.

Radek Kliber (6390) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 22, 2003
You must love this soft hoppy aroma , large white head , lightly sparkling brew . Interestingly made: at front malty then slightly bitter and with touch of organic vegetables. Creamy mouthfeel , maybe a bit to heavy for lager to be very refreshing .

CapFlu (4500) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2003
(Bottle) Lightly carbonated; gold with thin, white head. Yeasty and citrusy nose. Surprisingly complex; somewhat yeasty. Nice bitter finish.

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2003
Fine yellow. Great head. Has a pleasent aroma of grass/barley-field. Goes in the flavor too. One of the better S. Smith's.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2003
Huge head is what I noticed right away. Dark rich gold colour. Bitter on the palate. Decent. Decent lager. Slightly hoppy... decent none-the-less
