3/5 rDev -17.6%
This one didn't impress me much, but it's drinkable. i have liked other Sam Smith's beers better. To be perfectly honest, I was steered to try this because "it was a perfect example of diacetyl." Now I can finally be certain of what they meant, and what that flavor is. I suppose it's not a bad taste, but it's not my favorite either. I certainly wouldn't turn down a glass of this, but I'll seek out other brews from this brewery in the future..

3.43/5 rDev -5.8%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle
A - Dark orange/ambar color with a decent off-white head. Not that much retention and/or lacing
S - Toasted malts with caramel touches. There's a scents from citrusy hops, and an earthy presence, but not so prominent as the malts
T - Mostly toasted sweet malts. The hops are there to balance the malts, but they're mostlu present at the dry, bitter finish.
M - Medium body and medium carbonatation. Creamy but not that smooth texture
O - Not an spectacular beer, in the sense that none of its ingredients really stand out, but it's an nice balanced ale. Maybe I wouldn't choose it if others are available, but i wouldn't mind drinking it again

3.45/5 rDev -5.2%
550ml Bottle: BBD Jul 14, poured into an over sized UK pint sleeve on 17th Nov 13.
Nice orange amber body, clear and clean, on top a full off-white foaming head.
Malty nose, bread dough and dry biscuits though, not sweet or molasses style. Some fruit esters in the aroma too.
The taste was also malt led, the malts however were semi-sweet compared to the smell and there is a caramel feel to the biscuit flavour. Those fruit esters are in the taste, giving the beer an extra dimension within the taste. The hops were very under-stated although there is a mild hop finish.
The body hides the alcohol nicely and this is an easy going beer which I really enjoyed.
