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.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 7, 2003
Pale golden colour, impressive head, very persistent. The aroma is malty. The flavour has a good and pleasant matly sweetness. Just a touch of hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Not as good as other Sam Smith's beers, but still an impressive lager; very good quality!

Very attractive golden color. It practically glows. Big foamy head fades to and stays at a nice eight inch in thickness. Slightly hazy. Aroma is mostly malty. Completely clean and appropriately easy drinking. Medium bodied with tiny bubbles of carbonation. This beer is driven by sliky smooth malts but a touch of hops coming out in the finish brings everything together. So refreshing and smooth it practically drinks itself.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2003 Light golden color with a super thick frothy head (took for ever to dissipate so that I could fill the rest of my glass)Nice malt taste with slight bitterness that leads into a nice aftertaste

Good, though not up to par with other Sammy brews. Disappointing in that respect.

light golden, slightly creamy/frothy white head. aroma is malty with hints of wet paper. flavor is very malty with only a faint hint of bitterness. as far as lagers go this one is very good. if this is compared with other lagers alone, i'd probably rate it at least one half point higher.

Has a light golden colour. Head is medium. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavour is sweetish but not distinct. No bitterness in the end. Mediocre lager.

3fourths (8879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Light pour with little head, aroma was quite sweet, similar to SS IPA. Taste is light and slightly sweet, with a texture that is average. Not so bad on your tongue, with right amount of carbonation.
