Drinking a bottle of it right now - it's kind of ashy, and I swear there's a note of pickles. Not undrinkable, but certainly not what I expected.

Sam Smith's Nut Brown. Working my way through the gift pack - definitely the best deal of them all. (And the Nut Brown tastes far fresher than the last couple of times I've snagged it at the LCBO.)
