COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice light colored clear yellow with streams of carbonation rising at a decent pace to fill a one and a half finger white foamy head. The head dissipated within less than about forty seconds and graced the glass with a nice speckled lacing. The smell had some subtle biscuit to breadiness rolling under my nose and allowing a nice sweet honey coated hoppiness. The taste had a nice sweet fruity character over top of some light breadiness. There was a quick dry and crisp finish. On the palate, this beer was about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth. Overall, in my opinion, this was a good beer to have again.

Aroma: Apple-ish English fruit; Sweet malt, subtle biscuit, and a honey-like character.
Flavor: Fruit character is really dominant. A character I would expect from and English ale--so that’s surprising. Also some vegetable lager yeast flavor, and a little malt in the background.

Color daurat amb molt bona presència d’escuma, però és poc persistent. Bon aroma i molt refrescant. Color dorado con una buena presencia de espuma, pero poco persistente. Buen aroma y muy refrescante.

The beer poured clear and gold with a nice, thick white head. The head receded fairly quick and left little lace work on the glass. It had a sweet malt smell and the taste, like the smell, was sweet and crisp, and had a slight spicy bite. It had a nice full mouth feel and was of medium carbonation. This was a good beer that I felt sad to see finished.

Anchor Tap Sam Smiths, Tower Bridge. Keg. Bright clear pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and light with fine minerally carbonation. Light pale malt, whisper of nuttyness. Very light floralness and a touch of citrus. Smooth finish. Light and very drinkable.
