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 lagerís flavour, purity and condition.

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

cgarvieuk (21106) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2007
Golden yellow in colour, with a little light hop in the nose, and a very typical lager hop flavour.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Very nice appearance but the aroma smells like dirty laundry and the flavor does taste like hay just as advertised. Their worst beer.

bottle - Pours clear yellow/gold with a big, fluffy white head. It has a light malt aroma. The flavor is mild malt with a little hops in there for balance. Itís not a lot of hops, but itís more than most pale lagers Iíve had, which is a good thing. This beer is light bodied and very easy to drink with a slightly off tasting, mildly bitter finish. Itís somehow better than their organic lager, but still thoroughly unimpressive.

Very nice golden color with a mild head. I was expecting great flavor, but was disappointed with the generic taste. Aroma was less than desirable. Wouldnít purchase or drink again.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a clear gold color with a thin, bright white head. Slightly sweet aroma of light malt and corn syrup. Flavor is similarly sweet, with the addition of some honey tones. Light body and moderately carbonated. A typical lager with just a bit more sweetness.

drpimento (3079) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Poured with a nice head and some lace has a nice light malty aroma. Pleasing gold color. Nice body. Very well balanced. Not a lot of flavor. Super subtle. Clean. Just not a lot there. Finish is similar to the rest. Guess it’s not bad, kind of boring. I like all the other Sam Smiths a lot more.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2002
Disappointing. Not as much flavor as I expected, but then England isnít lager country, no matter what young people are statistically drinking.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2003
Malty nutty aroma. Usual pil/lager appearance with foamy white head. Malty flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. To be honest its a bit thin only a slightly above average lager, SS should stick to making quality ales. The Germans and Czechs are the best at this sort of beer.
