      Amber, moderate carbonation, low head. Smells like melted butter. Fruity diacetyl maltiness all the way through. Strangely well-balanced.

      Overall Impression (2)
      Dark red-brown, moderate carbonation, OK head. Smells sweaty. Sweet, black, some roasty flavor in the middle. Strange yet familiar hop flavor...I wonder if Samuel Smith's uses this Bramling Cross variety.

      Place: The Liquor Collection, Honolulu HI
      Score: 12½ points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Amber-brown, moderate carbonation, very little head. Smells of fusels, diacetyl. Lots of diacetyl taste, with a bit of "Smith's" flavor. Good body, fairly smooth, but astringent at the end. I don't know...maybe it would grow on you. "Oatmeal, crystal, and pale malts...whole leaf Golding hops".
