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.

hopscotch (10563) - 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 (4627) - 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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Good golden color,small white head that left some lacing.Malty sweet aroma with some hints of fruit and hops.Malty taste with a nice smooth middle that leads to a very mild hop'sthe fruit didn't show up in the flavor but there was a slight buttery side to the taste.the after taste was mildly bitter hops with a decent finish.very easy brew to drink and a good brew well worth trying.

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2003
A touch too much carbonation for my liking although others may disagree. Left a lingering hint of malt. For the price I think you could find a little better brew. I was just a hair bit disappointed but I still enjoyed this beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2003
12 oz bottle, mug. White, fizzy head is average sized and quickly diminishing. Light gold colred body is clear with champagne like carbonation. Light flowery hops, grainy malt, light doughy yeast. Lightly sweet throughout; lightly bitter finish of short duration. Medium light body has a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Hops become lightly citric as this beer warms. I think the story here is how absolutely clean this beer is. Quite quaffable.
