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.

Bright gold color with very creamy white head. Decent hops and malt, not too pronounced. Well, after all, it’s a lager not an IPA. Very mellow finish. I think I’ll have another.

This is a good try at a German Helles style. Interesting to say the least.

This beer poured a straw color and formed a nice airy white head that left some nice lace. The aroma was of hops and malt. The flavor was also of hops and malt, with a slight sweetness of citrus with a bit of a doughy finish to it. Not a bad lager from Old Tadacaster crew.

Sweet grassy aroma, dark golden colour, with a huge white head. Crisp, clean, malt flavour. Fair bitterness. A pleasant experience.

Bottled. Decent British lager - not that bland soapy lager normally produced here. I’m not sure why I would want to try this again, as it is more expensive than continental imports like Budvar or Urquell and they are better.

Nothing special, alittle disappointing. Tasted like average lager. Not worth the price, get a LaBatt’s Blue instead...

Not the brewery’s strong point. They do have a lot of strong points, however. Stout, cider, brown, you name it.

Golden color. Fruity, flowery, Grainy, grassy smell. Decent head. Hoppy flavors and finish. Not my fav from S.S.

MWBF 2002: Light spicy hop aroma. Skunky fizzy and bland.

Light straw color, medium head. A light bodied lager. Crisp and light mild flavor. Mild taste. Mouthfeel is round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Fairly well made, very standard tasting lager beer. Nothing particularly wrong with this beer, its very well made just not a lot of taste or flavor to it.
