Day #331 – Samuel Smiths Winter Welcome Ale

Samuel Smiths Winter Welcome Ale


I don’t think I’ve reviewed a beer from Samuel Smith in quite awhile, maybe not since the very beginning! Anyways, it’s time for another. This beer is their seasonal release, an English Strong Ale at 6%.

This beer pours a clear copper color with a light ring of foamy head.

There is a strong syrupy aroma here that mixes with some honey notes and grains. There is also a fairly bready aroma as well.

Flavor is sweet with honey notes again, with sharp bitter bread. The alcohol can also be felt and tasted. Much better than the first time I tried this.
