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 lagers flavour, purity and condition.

The color is very similar to that of light American lagers, but this is obviously a much better beer than them. There was little head on the beer. The aroma was somewhat sweet and I thought I noticed a hint of an apple juice aroma. Taste was a nice balance of sweet and I thought I noticed a hint of carmel.

While the English can't compete with the Germans in Lager production, this isn't a bad English endeavor. Bright, clear, golden color and a flowery hop and malt nose. Nicely balanced sweet malt and bitter hop flavor with a pleasant finish. Not bad.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Clear yellow orange with a quickly ending white head. Sweet earthy flowery aroma, good but thin mouthfeel, crisp, lightly bitter ending. It's nice to see a Sam Smith product in a brown bottle.

yellow body, fully diminishing white head, uninteresting slightly repugnant aroma.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2004
Quite liked this beer. Pale golden colour with a white frothy head. Combined aromas of malt and hops. Flavour of citrus, good balance of sweetness and late bitterness, light to medium in body with a long finish.

If you believe advertising, this is what Coors is supposed to taste like. Clear and crsip with the right amount of sweetness. A great lager from a great brewery.

Golden color, white head. Aroma was pretty malty, some grassy hops. Pretty nice balance in flavor, bready malt and the grassy hops. Some lingering bitterness. Very nice for the style.

Pours a typical yellow/golden lager color with little to no white head. Aroma is faint but light and sweet almost. Taste is also light but with a really nice almost caramel taste that goes down extremely easy. Quite satisfying.

A very good lager. Reminded me of the Czech pilseners Pilsner Urquell and Czechvar. Very easy to drink, with a decent malty flavor and notes of grass and hay. Good hop presence gives it some citric like bitterness. All round a very drinkable beer.
