3.9/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. Bottle

A: 3/4 fingers of head - brown with hints of amber; this is a fairly light brown ale.

S: Alcohol is faint in the beer, the nut is prominent. Brown/Darker malts not noticeable.

T: Tastes good; nut is dominant and malt is noticeable - faint alcohol warms the throat on the way down.

M: Smooth, but a little too bubbly.

D: Great.

Good nut brown, smooth with heavy nut flavors - very dry just like all Samuel Smith's I've had.

Serving type: bottle

4/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: clear ruddy brown body of ale, few fingers of tan head draped some lacing down the glass

S: toasty and nutty malts; dark herbal bread dough; something herbal and earthy

T: nut and biscuit flavors up front, highlighted by lighter points of wet toast and tea; drying malt tastes on finish

M: mellow and smooth, slight coating on the close; slim-bodied and easy drinking

O: a nice brown English pub-style from renowned English brewers. No wonder it's a classic.

My first English brown ale, I found it only vaguely comparable to various American brown ales I've had. While not partial to brown ales, I was very fond of Rogue's Hazelnut Brown and DFH's Indian Brown ales, and while you would never confuse this with them, I would consider it on par.
