Samuel Smith makes great organic beers so, this was the one beer that I was looking really forward to on my beer tasting evening with RvDoorn... and the one we would most disagree on. The botlle itself is beyond beatiful, museum piece!!!

A: Dark ruby color with a very dense head that remains throughout the drink.

S: Caramel, sweet syrup, banana, raisins as well as some citrus terpenes.

T: WOW great taste. Like RvDoorn says, reminds me of the strong golden barley wine. Malts,fruits and a strong bitterness. Almost too strong but with some small snacks aside it was no problem for me.

M: Nice creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation and no alcohols.

D: YES, another great Samuel Smith on my list. An exceprional Ale. Next round of tasting I will bring on the Oatmeal Stout!!! Actually the first beer where me and RvDoorn didn't agree.

The only thing I don't like about this beer is the price! This is certainly a fantastic brown ale, but I don't think it is significantly better than many regular priced local brews. The craft brewery price-tag is a little steep, but of course, this ale deserves a lot of praise. Rich, full, and smooth flavor, and all said and done I would probably buy it again.

Poured into a chilled mug.

A: Pours a pleasing deep amber hue, without cloudiness, with almost no head or lacing.

S: I get malt, nuts and apple in the nose. Very faint undertone of banana.

T: Caramel, nuts, apple, with slight sour/yeasty notes.

M: Hefty amount of carbonation, thin mouthfeel - has the texture of clear soda.

O: A fantastic, malty beer with low bitterness and a great price point. One of the best beer values out there.
