Pour out of 375 mL bottle with thin white head, aroma brought notes of pilsner malt, hints of cracker, biscuit, slight grass, pine, earthy tones as well. Taste is a mix of pils, cracker, hints of earth, grass, slight orange, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, dry.

Another excellent beer from Samuel Smith! This India Ale tastes smooth, yet strong, with a great maltiness taste. Runs dry in the mouth, superb aftertaste!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel, fruit, honey, and a little skunkiness in the aroma. Flavor starts very malty and a little sweet, with a lot of caramel and some fruit flavors. Finish has a little bitterness and spice. More like a Belgian ale than an IPA or ESB, but really good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A malty British India ale with golden brown appearance. Good taste but a little more malty than what I prefer. I never had this beer so I paid $7 for a 12 ounce bottle out at dinner.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark golden color with medium head and light lacing. Nose of apple and hops. Flavor is very underwhelming, very little carbonation. The bottle noted it focused on aroma amd maltiness, the aroma is fantastic and there is a bit of malt in the flavor.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alcoholic taste noticeable, but may be due to being stored for several months. Lightly sweet but fruity flavor with a bit of caramel malt to back it up. Nice body and smooth mouthfeel. A good beer- could be even better if the alcohol taste wasn’t present, but I won’t blame that necessarily on the brewer in this case.
