Pouring a vibrant copper, Samuel Smith Winter Welcome Ale gives off a pleasantly caramel-biscuit smell laced with hints of holiday spices. The gingerbread and allspice notes give way to a subtly fruity undercurrent. On the palate, there's a good amount of the caramel and biscuit malt flavors, but they're accompanied by an earthy flavor of hops with notes of subtle citrus and grass. The subtly builds with raspberry and red fruit flavors joining in. The body is moderate, slightly carbonated, and slightly bright and bitter. The ending is clean, with earth, fruit, and spice subtly vanishing.

My first winter warmer and really the beer that got me into craft beers 10 years ago. This malty delicious treat is something I look forward to every winter. It never gets old.
