Brewery: Samuel Smith
Beer: India Ale
Beer Style: English India Pale Ale
Country Of Origin: United Kingdom of Great Britian & Northern Ireland
Serving Method: Bottle poured into pint glass
Background: I have had a few of Sam Smith’s beers before! They’re okay. Not my favorite, but they’re okay. This one was one I’ve never had before, but I enjoyed it.
Taste & Aroma: This is a beer that smells of herbal malt, and a floral resin. The tasting notes are of dark fruits, bread, and a malty raisin-like finish.
Final Analysis: I knew I would not be ranting and raving about this beer. Too mellow and watery. Marston’s Pedigree is the best English style IPA.
