History: Samuel Smith is most famous for classic ales, but it also offers what is described as Englands finest lager. The all-malt beer is brewed with a softer water and fermented in separately-housed stainless steel lager vessels using bottom-fermenting yeast.
Taste: Rich golden color, delightful floral bouquet with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.
Pairings: Poached Darne of salmon with smoked salmon mousse and tomato salad. Chilled as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to an alfresco buffet. Mixed with lemon-lime soda or ginger ale to make a shandy.
Serve in a wine glass-type tumbler at 40 degrees.
