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.

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

bhensonb (13732) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
355 bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a frothy creamy 4 finger white head. Aroma is sweetly bready with hints of citrus and light pitted fruits. Med minus body. Flavor sort of fits the aroma, but it’s a very mild set of flavors. Still much more interesting than American macros.

Tmoney99 (13155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle 550ml. Clear amber color with an average rocky white head that diminished quickly and produced fair lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture. Small sweet flavor and finish that was short. Very bland brew.

FatPhil (13051) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2015
500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (5+:4:5:3:11=2.8+)
Soft vanilla, some orange, and light grains. Beautiful tight persistent head over a bold golden body. Simple light grainy taste, less interesting than aroma. Fullish palate. Want some hops in the finish, there’s almost none. Very nice lager, but still lacking a few details.

HenrikSoegaard (12841) - Randers, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate hoppy and malty aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Nice grassy bitter finsih. Oily palate. Better than the organic lager.

imdownthepub (12801) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500 ml. Yellow gold with white head. Peversly Sam Smiths do these beers at a better quality than their mainstays. This ahs the benefits of a light maltiness, thin but complimented by a Saaz type hop. It’s ok.
