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.

Theydon_Bois (11138) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle at friends - 27/08/12. Clear pale gold with a thin white head and lively carbonation present. Sweet pale malt on the nose allied to grain, cereals, touch of citrus and a good dash of honey. Taste follows nose and you get a little honey in a fairly sweet finish. Medium bodied, carbonation was surprisingly low on the palate when contrasted with its visual appearance.

Pinball (11025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2014
clear slightly pale yellow, big white head. nice pils aroma, very typically erope style lager. flavor is very slightly flowery, otherwise just a mild but distinct malty bitterness and euro hoppy bitter balance. good lager. just enough subtle notes to keep me interested, yet, very clean and to the point.

imdownthepub (10989) - 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.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 14, 2008
Botella. Clear golden with a huge quite well lasting creamish white head. Aroma of some fruit (apple?), mild yeast, some malt and grass. Good mouthfeel. Mild hoppy flavour with some malt, bit of fruitiness, good mild bitterness and grass. Dry bitter finish. In Nomine Patris et Fili et Spiritus Sancti.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007
(Early rating and very inadequate, I’m afraid) Nice head and color and the aroma has notes of hops and hints of melon. The flavour has a nice depth, but I feel it’s out of balance. It has a nice bitterness and a nice finish. Refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2003 clear bright golden colour, few foam, malty and spicy nose with some herbal and peanut notes, medium-bodied, light bitterness, long dry herbal finish
