The History of Pure Brewed Organic Lager
Lightly kilned organic lager malt grown in the UK is the main ingredient, with a substantial addition of organic UK Vienna malt. Samuel Smith's has begun to source organic hops in England; some of the organic hops used in the recipe come from New Zealand. Certified Organic by the USDA-accredited UK Soil Association. In 2012, Pure Brewed Organic Lager replaced Pure Brewed Lager and Organic Lager; UPC codes are the same as Organic Lager.
Bright straw-gold color; medium body. Pure barley malt flavor and herbal hops in perfect balance. Clean and crisp, with brilliant conditioning.
As an aperitif, or with Quiche Lorraine, Crab Louis, poached salmon, or grilled halibut. Serve in traditional Samuel Smith tulip glass.
