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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Clear, pale golden with a white head. Malt, some grain and apple-fruityness in the aroma. The flavor has a malty sweetness, well balanced with the hops. Medium body and a nice apple-fruity finish. Stick to the ales, Samuel Smith. (061124)

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled at The Champion, London Xmas Pub Crawl. Must admit I prefered the Organic lager that Chris_o had. Thin white head tops a lager gold body. Lager hop nose, bit thin in mouth, but mostly inoffensive. Nose as it goes down gets progressively more sickly

Dedollewaitor (14110) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2007
55cl bottle. Pours clear see through yellow with a fine lasting egg white head. Aroma is of hay/grain/grass - in a good & fresh way. Body is slight watery . carbonation is a bit flat. A typical premium lager but without a nasty metallic edge & such. Very drinkable for its style.

As lagers go, this is one of the best - great cookie-like maltiness.

Leighton (11876) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light, clear gold with a medium, foamy and pure white head. Light, pale malt aroma with faint, earthy hops. Mildly sweet flavor with some bread, hay and grass. Hops catch up in the later stages. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes fairly crisp, dry and sweet. Decent.
