Samuel Smith's Ale

Type: Ale
Origin: UK
Price: $3.50 a 550 mL

I got this bad boy about two weeks ago when I got the Coronado Wit and Left Coast Belgian at Whole Foods. As you could probably see, I got distracted by a few parties last week. As Andy was saying, the labeling is far superior to any other beer and makes you feel like people are dying outside from the plague. This ale is probably the smoothest ale I have ever had. It smells a bit citrusy, but only tastes a little bit like that. The hops are very subtle and perfectly balanced. The color is like when you open up an old pirates chest. Truly a treasure that I will consume again.
