Default Sam Smith's Organic Best Ale

Waiting for some folks for dinner so ordered a Sam Smith Organic Best Ale. First time tasting this, more malt forward, not much hop aroma but a nice balancing bitterness. I could definitely drink more of this. Its remarkable the number of enjoyable beers Sam Smith makes. Are they independant?

Looks like they are at least at the rudder: http://www.samuelsmithsbrewery.co.uk/

I really like their beers, and my wife gets me the winter 4 pack at Cost Plus every Christmas - she get's some serious kudos!

Ive pretty much enjoyed all of them really,although I just had the organic cider a while a go and it was OK-havent had a ton of ciders either,but I know I liked a few of woodchuck ciders more.
I have a pamplet thingy(Merchant duVin-Classic Brewing STyles ,it may be what r2eng was describing. It says: Each benchmark style is produced by a family-or monastery owned craft brewery. Not shure if they make the Pinkus series but those are pretty decent and relativly inexpensive.Oh wait Pinkus is German,pretty tastey though.Some info at merchantduvin.com.(
