as far as amber ales are concerned this one is pretty solid. a nice hoppiness with the hint of deeper character, perhaps of fruit. slightly sweet. a decent easy drinker.

Bottle. Someone gave this to me. Good beer, had a fruity aroma and flavor. Was smooth on the palate. Suprised that it is 6% as I didn’t notice an alcohol presence as smooth as it went down the hatch. Sorry Turbo just realized your that someone.

Aroma is extremely weak but what’s there is malty (one may risk inhaling the brew!) Nice honey-amber tint; small head, thin bubbles. Surprisingly flavorful compared with the meagre aroma. Toffee malts dominate, with a nice hops balance that cascades on through in the finish along with some vague watermelon tinges. Very crisp, clean mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap at the BW3’s on Mayfair. Boy was I suprised to see a Bell’s handle at the bar! Hazy amber body with a generous foamy white head. Soapy lacing. Apple sweetness and caramel malt with leafy hops in the aroma. Deep carmel malt flavor with yeasty bread dough undertones and sharb but unobtrusive apple skin / plant stem hops. Overall the beer is malt-forward. An enjoyable amber but nothing to get excited about.

Bottom poured murky (nearly opaque) brownish copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, butterscotch, and caramel malts. Taste of nutty and caramel malts with a citrus, lightly bitter, hop finish.
