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.

Sam Smith has yet to dissapoint. This was a nice and slighlty bitter lager. This was some of the best lager that I have ever had, it had a very distinct yeasty or breadlike quality. Good stuff.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Brown bottle...GOOD. Pours yellow and fizzy. Large, fast fading off white head. Aroma of fresh bread. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a little bitterness and finishing lightly spicy and kinda dry. My favorite lager so far.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Good golden color,small white head that left some lacing.Malty sweet aroma with some hints of fruit and hops.Malty taste with a nice smooth middle that leads to a very mild hop'sthe fruit didn't show up in the flavor but there was a slight buttery side to the taste.the after taste was mildly bitter hops with a decent finish.very easy brew to drink and a good brew well worth trying.

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2003
A touch too much carbonation for my liking although others may disagree. Left a lingering hint of malt. For the price I think you could find a little better brew. I was just a hair bit disappointed but I still enjoyed this beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2003
12 oz bottle, mug. White, fizzy head is average sized and quickly diminishing. Light gold colred body is clear with champagne like carbonation. Light flowery hops, grainy malt, light doughy yeast. Lightly sweet throughout; lightly bitter finish of short duration. Medium light body has a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Hops become lightly citric as this beer warms. I think the story here is how absolutely clean this beer is. Quite quaffable.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUL 7, 2003
This brew pours a light clear yellow with a tall creamy off white head that doesn't stick around long. The lacing is good. The nose is stunted; I could pick up just a hint of grains. The brew starts sweet with a warm alcoholic middle. The finish is bready with a hint of lingering bitterness. The light and creamy body is lively, the finish feels alcoholic. It's hard to get excited about any lager, and this one is par for the course.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2003
When poured this brew had a small white head with fine-small bubbles that quickly diminished. There was a lot of carbonation with this brew. The body was cloudy and pale yellow in hue. The aroma was malty and the lacing was fair on the sides of my glass. In my opinion, this brew had a bitter taste that lingered.

thedm (5936) - Fredonia, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized white bubbles that left little lacing and a cloudy straw yellow carbonated body. It has a plesant malt-hop aroma. Ifelt it was a rather smooth brew with a mild hop flavor. Its a nice all-around brew, but nothing special to write home about.

A golden light color with little or no head. not too sweet, mild with a fresh bouquet lingering on the tongue.

A light yellow beer with no head. The flavor is sweet and malty. An average beer.
