Samuel Smith's Organic Apricot Ale | Recommended by Elissa Cahn for Alcoholmanac Magazine

 

Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale

The Old Brewery, Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

5.10% ABV


Recommended By Elissa Cahn

Yorkshire’s oldest brewery, Samuel Smith’s, began in 1758. Located in Tadcaster, the brewery has used the same strain of yeast for over a hundred years, and water used to brew beer is drawn from the same original well. The brewery is so committed to ancient methods that local deliveries are still carried by horse. Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale has origins at two breweries in England—wheat and barley ferments into ale at Melbourn Bros’ (which still uses hand-operated equipment) and is transferred to Samuel Smith’s, where it is combined with another beer and apricot juice. Good news for those who avoid animal products: all Samuel Smith beers and ciders are vegan.

Honey-colored, sweet and slightly tart, the apricot ale tastes like an adult soda—almost a beermosa. The fruitiness makes this especially enjoyable sipped outside in warm weather. Minimally hopped, there is a welcome bitterness in the finish that helps cut the sugariness of the juice. For less intense sweetness, consider combining it with sparkling water. Alternatively, this makes a great beer cocktail with sparkling sake. Orange, mango or peach juices would also pair well. An 18.7 oz. bottle is $5-$7—a good size for sharing with a friend or making cocktails at a small gathering.
