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.

A very good lager. Reminded me of the Czech pilseners Pilsner Urquell and Czechvar. Very easy to drink, with a decent malty flavor and notes of grass and hay. Good hop presence gives it some citric like bitterness. All round a very drinkable beer.

Medium golden color with a big time head and pretty good lacing. The aroma was mild but pleasant with a hint of caramel and a meadow hoppiness. The first thing that struck me was how sweet this beer tasted for a lager. Slightly acidic on the tongue with the hops catching up with the malt and a dryish finish. I have mixed feelings about this one-it was sorta interesting but seemed thin. Came in a brown bottle though, which is a step in the right direction for this brewer.

Nice, light golden pour with a small, lingering white head. Bubbly. Smooth aroma, somewhat citrusy. Light dry taste, but some floral hops as well. Cleam and crisp, nice finish as well.

Nice golden color, ample white head. Attractive bubbles throughtout. Aroma is of dry grain dust. The flavor is better, starts with a very gentle pale malt sweetness and finishes with an understated zest floral hoppiness. This beer is way too weak for me, if I was eating something right now I wouldn't be able to taste the beer at all.

A very clean, crisp lager. One of the best lagers I've had. Good hop flavor, very tasty.

Poured a clear golden color wit ha decent sized white head. Nice, citrusy aroma. Light carbonated mouthfeel. Flavorful, lightly hopped ... a nice, clean finish. Very good beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Straw color with abundant carbonation. Aroma of butterscotch and grassy hops. Buttery flavor as well. Lots of diacetyl in this puppy. I enjoyed this less than any other brew from Samuel Smith.

Hazy golden color, big foamy white head. A very easy beer to drink, with a lot of citrus flavoring. Excellent for a lager.
