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.

pintbypint (3634) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 25, 2013
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.

gripweed57 (2452) - 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.

2.7
Scipio (1077) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Pours a thin, clear, yellowish golden with a full white head that settles pretty quickly. The aroma has a lot of grain, and I usually don’t like that. Additionally, its mildly floral, with straw, corn, and some weak honey. The taste is slightly bitter. The flavors that are promoted are a lot like the nose, but the heavy graininess isn’t found. Instead, we now get a lot of bread. Even if that isn’t exciting, I’ll happily take bread over grain. Floral aftertaste. Light to medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. This is unimpressive.

550 ml bottle at home. Poured a big white head and looks golden in color. Kind of carbonated. Smooth. Hay in taste. A little different but overall above average!

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle. Yellow Gold. Refreshing, clean, smooth, faintly fruity, malty lager with pleasant hoppy finish. Not bad. (2008)

MayumiH (1214) - - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle at Organic & Natural. Clear golden colour. Floral nose with hints of wet hay. Light/medium bodied. Lightly hopped. It’s ok.

3.2
StuartC (74) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Burnished lemon-gold colour, quick-fading pure-white head with barely any fizz; Smells like ordinary lager, also doughnuts & demerara - strangely intriguing! Bounces all over the palate, lots of spritz yet not too fizzy, light bodied and a sharp finish; Flavours of hay & sweet malts, caramel with lifts of lemon-zest develop. Nothing boring about this lager, but at 5% I wouldn’t want to drink too many of them either - in one sitting anyway.

3.3
AgentAle (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Aroma is honey, caramel, straw and citrus. Taste is light sweet grain, clove, honey, and lemongrass. Fairly well balanced with slight bitterness on the tip. The mineral groumd water adds nice flavors to the body. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3.1
Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
From memory; pint on tap at Sam Smith’s Bispham Hotel, Blackpool. Pours pale yellow. Aroma of wheat, biscuit, pinch of caramel. Taste is muted, but as a lover of ales (and not lagers) i found this quite a full bodied tastey,if very neutral tasting pint. Its neither hop nor malt forward but has a natural hay like freshness which i’ve seldom found in other lagers. Maybe ive been suckered in by the ’organic’ label or the fact that it costs more than the other lagers on sale there, butI stomached a pint which is more than most lagers.
