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.

550ml brown bottle. Pours clear and light yellow. White foam, ok lacing. Nose has straw and a bit of caramel. Taste has straw/grassy hops, clean grains. Finish has light grains, tiny bit of grass hop. Lots of carbonation, light bodied. Easy drinker, better than expected.

chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2017
.5 /l bottle. Clear golden body with a decent white head. A mild and mildly bitter brew but with plenty of flavor for style. Hop dominated with a floral-herbal Euro hop profile.

Light golden, fluffy head. Aroma - grainy, bready, a bit of wort on the background. Medium bitterness, more bread in the taste. Nice, well balanced.

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Sept 2005 Poured nice with a decent head and very nice gold color. A bit weak in malt and hops but pretty well balanced. This is my first organic and I'm not sure how that helps the beer overall but this one is pretty darned drinkable so I'll buy it again and for the US$3.07 price tag, it's a pretty good bargain. Update: I'm enjoying another bottle of this very nice lager. It poured(room temp) a light gold with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly. The smell is sweet with some fruitness. The taste is fairly hoppy at the start and then the malt moves in and creates a balance that makes this lager a pleasure to drink. Darn good stuff!!

martpez (372) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2017
Nice carbonation the taste has the sam smiths old brew metallic tinge and copper colour. Apart from that its a decent dry lager.

3.1
Scopey (16227) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Keg at Glasshouse Stores, Soho. It pours clear yellow with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is rather, soft, sweet, white bread, white sugar, toasty grain and rich tea biscuit. The taste is crisp, clean, fluffy, soft, mellow sweetness, doughy, white bread, honey suckle and straw with a soft finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Well rounded and pretty drinkable. Decent enough lagerbier.

3.2
ajnepple (7338) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma and flavor of toasted malt, mild hops and a light earthy grassiness. Clean, smooth and easy to drink overall.

3.6
gripweed57 (2966) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Pale gold color. Big foamy white head. Slightly dry, malty aroma. Delicious zesty malt flavor with a hint of herbal hops. Dry finish has a lovely hop character. Long dry aftertaste. Well rounded and full bodied. Unique for a lager, but Sam Smith quality prevails again.
