I have had this beer before, but now I have a reason to drink it. I haven’t been impressed with Samuel Smith’s in the past, having only drank a few of their beers because of the overall quality that I experience. But tonight, I am drinking with a purpose. (Thanks to Kyle Lacy for helping me decide that our new tagline is, “It’s fun to drink with a purpose.”)
The beer smells good. Not really getting the nut nose that everyone talks about. Sorry, that sounded funny. But it does smell good, almost sweet. But the beer smells better than it tastes.
I have a feeling that this beer would get better the warmer it gets. But again, I am not that impressed with Samuel Smith’s. Even their porter is weak. I will give this beer some credit, though, for being traditional. Plus, it’s a staple in nearly every liquor store. And cheap. The big bottle and the gold wrapper gives it away.
There’s just something about the “nut brown” that turns me off from the start. But that nose… man. Anyway, the beer is just mediocre at best. Oh well, hopefully we will only have a couple more of these Samuel Smith’s on the list.

550 ML bottle served very cold in glass beer challis
A) Clear mahogany brown, short off white head that turns lacy very quickly. Appears a bit flat but actually isn't.
S) Sweet orange peel, baked sour dough bread, coriander
T) Mild hops, toffee, sweet citrus fruit.
M) Ample carbonation, sticky sweet, mild bitter finish
O) An outstanding beer that is easy enough to find here in Chicago.
