Beer Review #9

Samuel Smiths Nut Brown Ale
5% Alcohol/volume
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.
                    Score 4/5

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
          Score 4/5

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.
                 Score 4/5

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
                very well
                Score: 4/5

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.
                   Score 4/5

Scoring: 20/25  These beer are worth the cost.(probably because they are
                        expensive. Good to share and drink for flavor.
