Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale from Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster). Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this has got a three finger head, adequate lacing, and a clear, medium light brown body.
I smell malt galore, some type of nut aroma,maybe even a dash of butter. This needs to fuller for a 4. But its a pleasant shift for Christmas in July.
I taste the same characteristics as I did with the smell. Sweeter caramel-y vibe going on here, too. Rich and full. This does a great job of reminding of the frosty months ahead here in Ohio. I kind of wish this was slightly more profound here too.
Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Only a slight lingering element here that lasts only a minute or so. But hey, this is a savory winter brew; so its not gonna be very crisp.
Overall a very good 3.75 for Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale from Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster). This would've gotten a higher score if if it were at least just a BIT fuller. I will buy this again
