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.

harrisoni (13156) - 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 (13106) - 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)

(Bottled 355 ml). Clear golden color, decent white head. Lemony, dish cleanser aroma. A bit fizzy. Sligfhtly grainy malty backbone. Light citrusy hops. Oily. Above an average bulk lager.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2002
Light amber; grassy, mossy aroma; slightly tinny, cracker-like maltiness; ~24 IBUs hiding underneath earthy overtones. Today’s B.S. quote of the week "tightly fused flavours".

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Clear yellow with healthy white foam. Aroma is invitingly grassy. Taste is mild grassy, some sweetness. Bitterness remains after the swallow. A nice beer, but nothing special.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Øltorvet.dk. Pours a pretty, weak golden with a very pretty, frothy white head - rather large. Aroma is sweet, malty, some ginger and hops. Surprisingly full mouthfeel. Flavour is malty sweet, doughy, but with a nice hoppy finish that doesn’t get too dry. Nice Pale Lager.

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain-some caramel. Taste is sweet grain-some caramel, secondary light spice hops. Easy drinking. OK carbonation.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2007
Golden beer with a medium sized white head. Slightly perfumed fruity aroma, some pilsner malt notes. Quite sweet and fruity flavour, with a hoppy finish. Better than industrial lager, not quite up there with a good pilsner.
