Bottled, New York. Smooth amber colour with a slow settling creamy head. Lovely nut and malt aromas. Easy drinking, really smooth, filling the palate out completely, giving you full the full service. Samuel Smiths was everywhere in New York. As were many other British and European beers. Good to see but this wasnt initially on my list. The beers to follow were drunk in Ratebeerian hideouts and breweries (5 in all) in 3 states. NY,MAS, Main.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Clear mahoganey color with a small light brown head. Aroma of caramel, malts, and nuts. Flavor is malty and slightly fruity up front followed by a nice nuttiness and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Very solid nut brown.

A very easy to drink brown ale. Kind of like a more flavorful Newcastle. Nice notes of coffee, nuttiness, and caramel. Not much in the line of hop bitterness though. Although average for a Sam Smith's, it is better than a lot of beers.

Hangover (1129) - oxford, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Dark brown witha a large, rocky and creamy head that takes its time to recede... leaving some nice lace. Roasted malt aroma. Taste is of hazlenuts and carmel with a nice mouthfeel. Left a slightly bitter aftertaste, but I'm not disappointed... this is good!

Clear red-brown colour with a strong tan head that leaves loads of great looking lace. Fresh & sweet malt aroma with a hint of hops. Good mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. Smooth, nutty flavour with notes of hazelnut and chocolate, and a well balanced hoppy finish. Really nice stuff!
