This one is a bit of a shocker for me. It's a great looking beer, but after that I can't think of too many brews that I've come across that are so utterly devoid of character. Has a whiff of sweet malt to it and a similar hint of malt to taste. A slightly bitter finish, maybe a touch of raisin. But any of that only comes across if you squint while you drink.

Looks awesome, but then nada. Disappointing.

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..
