3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of the better amber beers I’ve had. It’s actually really hazy which is interesting. Smells like sweet caramel, grass and honey. Taste is sweet, malty, and slightly bitter. It’s really easy to drink and tastes much better than most amber style ales.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a nice reddish copper color with a light tan head. Aromas come off as primarily sweet bread, but there is some nice citrusy fruit going on there too. Taste is very good, exactly what I’d refer to as "easy drinking" there is a bit of a grassy earthy quality that comes in on the taste that I didn’t get in the aroma. Very good, but not really anything flashy or exciting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.8%ABV. Amber Ale.
Poured out of the bottle a rich cloudy amber. 14ºSRM,
Nose has sweet well-roasted malty aroma. Maybe residual aroma of ripe oranges or tangerines.
Mouthfeel is sudsy and full-bodied. There are some nice graham cracker, wheat toast and toasted almond flavors. There are some other nutty flavors of hazelnuts and acorns.
Finish is abbreviated and clean. No hop character.
My favorite of Bell’s creations.
