Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome Ale
Samuel Smith Old Brewery, Tadcaster, UK
Available in "Victorian Pint" bottles, 12-ounce 4-pack bottles, and on draft for a limited time
As I’ve said before, Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome is a winter ale that conjures Shakespeare and Dickens, and brings a bit of English tradition to the holiday season.
The amber color, creamy head, and floral aromas of Fuggle and Golding hops are balanced by caramel malt flavors and the brewery’s distinctive fruity note in the finish. If you can find it on draft, it’s a soft and sublime sipper for a session at the pub.
Samuel Smith’s recommends pairing Winter Welcome with roast goose (really), smoked turkey with oyster dressing, rack of lamb, candied yams, Smithfield ham, fresh pears and apples, Christmas cake, and, of course, mince pie.
