Beer Review #9
Samuel Smith Old Brewery
English Brown Ale
Appearance: A pour of a nice hearty red brown, almost
maple in color. It was nice and clear even
with the dark color. It was the perfect color
to make me wanna have a sip.
Taste: First taste was smooth at the start with a mild bitterness at the
finish. I found it quiet pleasant and the bitterness was not over
Mouthfeel: The second drink revealed much more about the beer.
Roasted Almonds and nuts flavored this semi sweet beer.
The strong flavor and soft bubbles made way for the
slightly more than average bitter finish.
Beer type: An English brown ale is meant to be maliter, sweeter, with a
full body, with fruit or nut flavor. Id say this one fits the bill
Drinkability: Due to the rich flavor and weight of the beer I couldnt see
myself drinking these all night. Maybe in England but not here
A couple for the flavor and taste but not many more than that.
That being said I think that is what this beer is meant for, other
than for drinkers in England.
Scoring: 20/25 These beer are worth the cost.(probably because they are
expensive. Good to share and drink for flavor.
