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 lagerís flavour, purity and condition.

madsberg (10308) - SÝborg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2003
Has a light golden colour. Head is medium. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavour is sweetish but not distinct. No bitterness in the end. Mediocre lager.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Light pour with little head, aroma was quite sweet, similar to SS IPA. Taste is light and slightly sweet, with a texture that is average. Not so bad on your tongue, with right amount of carbonation.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 22, 2003
This lager has a very pale color and a quickly dissapating head... The flavor is slightly sweet.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2003
This is good "drinkin" beer. Much more malty and complex than most lagers. Refreshing with a dry finish.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Absolutely clear and golden, light carbonation, fully diminishing head. Fresh aroma of buttered bread (dinner rolls) and honey. Lots of soft, pale malt, and lightly bitter, this is a very tasty lager. My only complaint that the texture is a bit watery. Also, one of the most attractive bottle/labels Iíve seen lately, with a really cool gold and green foil hops motif around the neck.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Pale golden color with a medium thick white head and lots of lace. Slightly sweet yet bitter malt aroma well balanced with hops and a hint of fruitiness. Hoppy slightly sweet flavor with a little bit of lemon accents and a hoppy finish. light to medium bodied and slightly dry.

I canít knock Samuel Smith beers even if itís not in my genre... Iíd drink motor oil if they made it.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Is Smithís the most consistent big brewer? Such quality in this; earthy aromas, malty, bready aroma and flavors, and just the right balance of hops to send a tingle to the tongue. Delicious. If only American standards could be 1/3 this good!

jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2002
The perfect amount of carbonation for me (much more than the oatmeal stout), very hoppy flavor, thick in content and bitter yet not overpowering aftertaste. Elegant pouring beer from an awesome bottle. I am Sammy Smithís new #1 fan and I look forward to trying his other varieties in the very near future.

PorterPounder (5591) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Slight malty aroma upon pouring. Nice, white creamy - but quickly dissipating head. Nice, even golden appearance. Faint, sweet pipe tobaccy taste - very full bodied and smooth going down. American lagers should take some notes.
