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.

BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Light straw color that's lightly hazy and has little whispers of carbonation coming up from the bottom. The head dissipated fast and was very "fizzy". No lacing either. The aroma is dusty with grains and has a light citrus/astringant hop lingering in the smells too; not very smooth, more assertive. The flavor is a little too sweet and flat for a lager. Not the usual dry finish with crisp hops in the end. The malts creep in but stay sweet. The mouthfeel is a little tangy but mellow. Finishes a little more balanced. This is a decent lager, definately one of the better ones in this bleak (flavorwise) category.

This light golden beer with its frothy white head is a good example of a pale lager. It has a hoppy aroma, crisp and clean, excellent carbonation. Lively w/ a slightly bitter finish.

Not much to say, that the commercial description does not already cover. The appearance is clear and yellow, with a fizzy soda head. The aroma is malty and bready, with alot of grass. The flavor is lightly astringent, with a really bad aftertaste. I did not care for this one, but then again I have never been a big fan of lagers.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2004
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.

SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2004
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 (2761) - 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.

Holdwine (1240) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2004
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.
