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.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2003
Sweet, malty nose. Chewy, noticeable texture with an active carbonation from start to finish. Slight alcohol nip. Very mild hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable and noncloying.

Nice golden color, ample white head. Attractive bubbles throughtout. Aroma is of dry grain dust. The flavor is better, starts with a very gentle pale malt sweetness and finishes with an understated zest floral hoppiness. This beer is way too weak for me, if I was eating something right now I wouldn't be able to taste the beer at all.

Hangover (1133) - oxford, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Very light colored lager. Some head retention, which is nice. Straw, corn and slight fruit aroma. Flavor is balanced I'll give it that. Besides that.. not much else going on here. I guess it's a unique lager, but it's still bland and uninteresting. I wish they would get rid of this lager, and use the brown bottles on their better offerings... if this were in a clear bottle, it would be repugnant if skunked. Not appealing to my taste buds but maybe some of you hardcore lager fans will find it interesting....

I think I always expect too much from Samual Smith considering how expensive it is. Not much flavor, not much head, not much of anything to talk about.

poured with little head, smells of apples, smooth and decent flavor, nothing really that special.

cgarvieuk (23892) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2007
Golden yellow in colour, with a little light hop in the nose, and a very typical lager hop flavour.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Very nice appearance but the aroma smells like dirty laundry and the flavor does taste like hay just as advertised. Their worst beer.

patrick767 (4047) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2007
bottle - Pours clear yellow/gold with a big, fluffy white head. It has a light malt aroma. The flavor is mild malt with a little hops in there for balance. Its not a lot of hops, but its more than most pale lagers Ive had, which is a good thing. This beer is light bodied and very easy to drink with a slightly off tasting, mildly bitter finish. Its somehow better than their organic lager, but still thoroughly unimpressive.

Very nice golden color with a mild head. I was expecting great flavor, but was disappointed with the generic taste. Aroma was less than desirable. Wouldnt purchase or drink again.
