Guide Review - Sleeman Original Dark Amber Ale 50 - Tasting Notes and Review of Sleeman Origina
Sleeman's Original Dark pours cloudy copper with a medium white head which falls quickly. It has a full, malty nose. The flavor is also full of rich, malt sweetness but with a good amount of balancing hops. The sweetness lingers after a really nice hops pop at the end. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. It would pair nicely with a wide range of foods, the spicier the better.
