Day 136 Drink: Samuel Smith Organic Strawberry Ale
Samuel Smith’s organic fruit beers are brewed and fermented at the Melbourn Bros. Brewery, located in Stamford, Lincolnshire then transferred and aged at Samuel Smith’s Brewery in Tadcaster, England. The company makes strawbeery, cherry and raspberry fruit ales.
Samuel Smith Organic Strawberry Ale has a fresh strawberry nose that emerges as soon as you open the bottle. It pours an amber gold color with a moderate head. The strawberry flavor note is clear. The beer is balanced and not overly sweet.
