Light amber in color with two fingers of thick head that last throughout the glass. Really amazing lace! Carmel and toffee smell with hints if malts.

Roasted malts with just enough hoppy bitterness to balance the beer. Carmel and toffee give it a touch of sweetness as well.

I would say I really agree with the overall ratings this one has gotten from this site. Another delicious beer from Sam smith.

Usual Samuel Smith bottle size served in a pint glass at room temp.

Appearance: Removed the crown cap and the bottle popped with the carbonation release. Poured thick and rich with a solid 2 inch head that was light brown and made of fine bubbles. The head shrank down to a 1/4 inch and rode the glass to the bottom. Nice lace formed all along the way. The color is a medium brown and reddish hues. No haze and very clear. You can read the bottle label through the glass.

Nose: Caramel and toffee, no hop bitterness in the nose, malty with brown sugar notes

Taste: Very mild hop bitterness, just enough to take care of the malt that is in this wonderful brown ale. Layers of malt, toffee, caramel, slight English hop (Fuggle maybe), bready. Slight alcohol hit; not hot but definitely warming (surprising for this 5% ale). Mildly resinous hop finish.

Finish: Hoppy at first with a lingering malty roastiness. Still coats the mouth after 5 minutes between sips. This is a contemplative beer meant for enjoyment with friends and exciting food with lots of flavor and spice.
