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.

Pours crisp and clear with a medium head, and carbonation. Smells softly of sweet grass, with a slight malted barley, and honey. Tastes of dampened barley and wet hay, with almost a corn cob tone. All with a tad of hop bitterness at the end.

Golden,well rounded lager.Intial yeatiness gives way to slightly bitter taste.Fades to a fairly light bodied brew that reminds you alot of ’weiss’ rather than lager.

Very good lager. Was poured from bottle bought from local General Store. Deep yellow body with a white head that quickly went away. Sweet hops filled my nose that was somewhat hindered from a cold. However again I keep saying it Samuel Smith know how to produce fine clean beers. It seems you are getting a clean strong beer no matter what style it is. This Lager would be the one I pick after 18 holes of golf somewhere in England, might fine.

Clean grain profile with touch of hops. Delicate carbonation and thin palate. Slight corn finish, but all in all enjoyable session beer.

Nothing special, alittle disappointing. Tasted like average lager. Not worth the price, get a LaBatt’s Blue instead...

Pretty good, for a lager. I really liked the bottle kinda tall and skinny perfect for breaking off the end and using it in a bar fight.

poured with little head, smells of apples, smooth and decent flavor, nothing really that special.

I was hoping for alot more for 3.85 a bottle. Wonderful lable, good job it sold the beer. One thing though, I’ll only buy this one once. I’m a little dissipointed. Tasted a little old with that oh so familiar imported skunk aftertaste, however faint. Jst enough to make this beer boring and way overpriced. Oh, well... have to try new stuff once. Suprised to see this from an outstanding brewing co.

Pours from brown 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Nice golden hue with lots of carbonation. Aroma is grains with faint floral and some pleasant citrus. Taste is rather grainy malts with just enough hops to keep you interested. Very delicately balanced. An excellent lager and a perfect summer session candidate.
