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.

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.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Bottle Poured a brown colored brew with a medium head with equally medium retention. Aroma of hops with light floral and sweet aspect to it is quite pleasant. Taste is very enjoyable with a good mix of hops and malts. A bit thin on spice with a medium body. Overall, I enjoyed this beer but would have appreciated a bit more hops or spice to make it truly great.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Pours with a clean white head and a crisp clear deep golden body. has a fruity and malty aroma that is very wintry and full of cheer. Flavor is smooth clean and satisfying with fruity undertones and a barely noticeable alcohol presence. Cheerful. This beer is a great way to welcome the holiday season for sure. A good old fashioned ale.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - MAR 1, 2004
2002-2003. A pretty skunky/bitter nose with a cream soda hue and a small, frothy head. The nose is sweet and slightly metallic as well. A fairly sweet presence in the middle with a hop-bitter ending. There are very slight notes of caramel and malt on the end as well. This is probably a little past its prime for sure, or not stored very well. Drinkable.

Not a very good selection from Samuel Smith, reminded me of its American counterpart: Sam Adams winter lager, which was probably fitting as I bought this at the only bar I buy Sam Adams winter lager. So to the review, poured nicely, tasted good enough, but that was it, nothing else going on with this one.
