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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Wow! A superb lager brewed where you’d least expect it. Superior head. Beautiful grainy aroma followed by a wonderfully smooth malt, classic lager flavor. Highly recommended.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 The beer pours a clear yellow color with a big white head. Head retention is good and it leaves good lacings on the glass. The aroma is grassy and hay-like with some malts and hops detectable. The flavor is mostly malts, with some hops poking through. It has a clean, grassy finish.

Not bad at all for a lager, excellent malt taste, a little watery...but refreshing.
