shrubber85 (11268) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2006 Bottle (2006). Light malt and hops aroma. Dark amber color with moderate head. LIght malt and moderate hops flavor but not much else. Little body. The first time I tried this beer was back in 95 - was a much better beer back then - fuller and much better flavor. Not nearly as good as it used to be.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2004
Winter spice (nutmeg and nuts) aroma to this mid brown beer. The taste is warming and there are signs of currants and candy peel. A very nice winter warming beer which is like a strong brown ale

Sammy (11968) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004
Beautiful amber brown color. Foamy. Smell of alcohol only drawback but also can be compared to a single malt scotch. Warms you up. Malt sweetness, some fruit (apple?) and mild spice. Hops and carbonation abundant that tingles tongue.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2004
I refreshing beer with a nice fruit hint. All the other Samuel Smiths I have had are better, but this one is still good. Somewhat bland.... could use a little extra flavor. Overall, I cant complain though.

A typical british ale. Some hoppy notes in the aroma. Flavor bitter and thin.

vector (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Pale blrown honey color. Nuts and fruit for flavor. Kinda bland, lacks personality. Has the distinctive sam smith's sweet and sour notes.
