The Samuel Smith brewery in Tadcaster was founded in 1758 and is Yorkshire’s oldest brewery. Samuel Smith is one of the few remaining independent exporting breweries in England and is the last to utilize the classic Yorkshire Square system of fermentation solely in stone (slate) squares. 

The rich Samuel Smith strain of yeast at the brewery dates from the early 1900s. Hops are hand-weighed by the master hop blender, and the brewing water is drawn from the original well, sunk over 250 years ago.

Samuel Smith produces over a dozen beers, but they are most known for their ultra-traditional English ales. The Organic Pale Ale, Taddy Porter, Oatmeal Stout, Imperial Stout, and Nut Brown are all considered some of the world’s best examples of their styles and are often seen as the benchmark in their categories.

Tasting Notes

A classic malt-accented, copper-colored pale ale in which subtle fruity esters from the Samuel Smith yeast strain interact with caramel flavors – from organic crystal malt – and fresh hops. This beer is an excellent example of how English malts mingle with English hops and complex fruity ale yeast.

 

Method

In most cases, beers that would be called Extra Special Bitter on draught in England will have the name Pale Ale if that same beer is bottled for export. Samuel Smith Pale Ale is a true icon, a classic example of this coveted style. Long before the days of tropical juicy hops, opaque haze, and bitterness that lingers for hours; this was what was known as Pale Ale for generations. Smooth, silky, and designed to easily consume multiple bottles!
