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.

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.

UNCCTF (518) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Hazy golden color, big foamy white head. A very easy beer to drink, with a lot of citrus flavoring. Excellent for a lager.

hopscotch (10657) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2003
Thin, light-yellow lager. Medium-sized, frothy white head. Spotty lacework. The nose is extremely frail, but lightly floral. Undertones of butter and damp straw. Well-bittered with hints of grapefruit peel, corn and lime. Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, very astringent finish.

RichardGretton (4654) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2003
Flat lager appearance with a lager aroma mixed with a German wheat beer. The flavour is lightly hopped. Overall a plain lightly hopped lager.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2003
MGC under a medium off white short lasting head. Mild slighty metallic herbal grassy perfumed hop aroma. Medium thinnish bodied. Short grainy sweet malty start. Longer bitter hoppy middle. Short fading sweeter finish switching to more bitter after taste. Pretty good for a lager.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Sam Smith has yet to dissapoint. This was a nice and slighlty bitter lager. This was some of the best lager that I have ever had, it had a very distinct yeasty or breadlike quality. Good stuff.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Brown bottle...GOOD. Pours yellow and fizzy. Large, fast fading off white head. Aroma of fresh bread. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a little bitterness and finishing lightly spicy and kinda dry. My favorite lager so far.
