Samuel Smith Organic Strawberry Ale (10/10)

Samuel Smith brewmasters, it seems we have a psychic link.  Every beer you make is a perfect fit for my tastebuds.  I even find your IPA drinkable, and I hate IPAs as a general rule.  How do you do it?

Samuel Smith's Organic Strawberry Ale is another home run hit (or the cricket equivalent) from my friends across the pond.  It pours into the glass a slightly reddish amber, very clear, with a light tan head.  The aroma of fresh strawberries is followed by a sweet strawberry flavor and no trace of hops.  It leaves a lot of lacing in the glass, probably a result of the sugary sweetness of the beer.

If you like strawberries, you should check out this beer.  If you don't like strawberries, avoid it.

The beer can be found locally at Cost Plus World Market at Tuttle Crossing, Kenny Road Market, and Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale.

Beer Advocate rates it an 85 out of 100 ("good").

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 14
My rating: 10/10
