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.

Ungstrup (32164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2003
A golden beer with an OK head. The aroma is light with notes of malt. The flavor is nice with a good malt and very bitter - like a czech pilsener. All in all an average pilsener - OK but nothing special.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautifully golden - some floating impurities though - with a decent head. Very mild and drinkable lager. Malty base and only a subdued bitterness. Sympathetic but perhaps also somewhat anonymous. 081201

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Buttery vegetable aroma. Fairly sweet with notes of sugar. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Barely better than the cheap commercial crap.

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Blond to golden color; big head. Strange aroma: white sugar, hay, paper. Some malt taste, quite round, light honey. Short finish, yet correctly bitter. There was no need to propose this Organic brew…

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled at The Champion, London Xmas Pub Crawl. Gold with thin white head. Some acids, some lemon,a bit bland really. Saving grace si the finish which is really quite pleasant, even has some juicy malt/fruit. Best of the 3 Sam Smiths lagers that we had

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2008
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a white head. Light citrusy nose, sweetish malty notes, and quite fruity. Fruity, slightly grainy flavor with some bitterness. Medium body, and a short, fruity finish. A quite pleasant one, especially considering it being a pale lager, but that’s it. (080305)
