Crystal clear copper/orange pour. Light head with some lacing. Aroma is a little bit sour probably from goldings. Malt sweetness also comes through as well as some fruity flavors. I get some green apple and some orange. Light body. Taste is very similar to aroma. Pretty balanced but still comes across as a bit sour. ---Rated via iPhone

Bottle @home. Pours golden, smallish white head. Nose is malty, slight fruit and floral, quite earthy. Taste is caramel, sweet but with a bitter finish.

Bosskie (902) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2017
Dark reddish brown, transparent, with a frothy white head and lots of gentle bubbles. Smell is warm and crisp, leather, raw nuts, caramel, raisins, strawberries. Taste is smooth and refreshing, nice elegant bitterness. Delicious and easy.

Pours a hazy reddish gold aroma is malty with some fruit notes. It's what I imagine the original India pale ales to be. Great English malt base with a flavorful hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice bitter - floral hops in aroma, some bitterness in taste. It smells like classic English ale and feels like it. Nice

Rune (12982) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017
Half-pint at Angel Inn. Clear golden-brown, filmy layer blanketing the glass. Floral hops on the nose with malty sweetness beneath. Nicely blended taste of apricot, citrus and caramel. Ends with moments of leafy hop bitterness. Clean and rounded finish. Likable. (Leeds 04.07.2017).

las de sam smith normalmente son muy buenas cervezas, llenas de sabor y cuerpo; esta no es excepcion

En god maltsødme der går ove i en finbalanceret humleeftersmag..............

Milter (960) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2017
God bitter øl. Dejlig frisk smag. Rimelig fyldig, med god aroma. Kedeligt udseende.

ludos68 (57) - - JUN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2017 Colore ambrato con cappello di schiuma bianco non molto persistente. Aroma erbaceo, lievemente floreale e caramello. In bocca domina l’amaro, elegante e non aggressivo, tutto su una base di malto e caramello che si contrappone al luppolo senza toglierne il dominio.
