Game Day Beer Review: Samuel Smith's Organic Strawberry Fruit Ale
Sam'l Smith's Organic Strawberry Fruit Ale (5.20% ABV). Pours a murky, deep honey-colored yellow with little to no head. The beer smells of strawberries -- overwhelming strawberries. It tastes of strawberries, too, and apricots. Organic Strawberry Ale is carbonated, but also a bit syrupy. It's definitely not sessionable, but it's not cloyingly sweet, either. It's a contrast, and very good for the style. Think hot weather and a change of pace, and you'll be on the right path: B.
