Samuel Smith’s India Ale
A – Beautiful clear, dark amber. Thick, creamy head that stays a reasonable amount of time and leaves a good amount of soft, thick lacing.
S – No discernible specific notes in the smell. Light, a little hoppy. Maybe a touch of fruity scent.
T – Kind of generic tasting. Good, but nothing unusual or unique. A little sour, but a fruity sour, not a spoiled sour.
M – Very clean, light feel. No oiliness, no real bitter aftertaste (just a nice hop.)
Wish I could offer a more interesting perspective or review, but all I can say it it’s just a pleasant, easy drinking ale that’s not spectacular, but nothing to complain about either.
I’d willingly have another, and that’s good for me.
