Pours hazy amber with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, fruits. Taste is of malt, caramel, sugar, fruits. Palate: Medium body. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: Straight-forward. Good for what it is, but I’m not a huge fan of the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Amber color with a scattering of off-white foam. Bit of a semi-skunk aroma with light roasted caramel and softer, sweeter malt underneath. Taste is straight forward with clean nutty caramel and light sweetness with some hop bitterness through the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a semi opaque, brilliant orange with some slight sediment and a thin head. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, dark fruits, bread, and a bit of fruityness. Taste is balanced. Mild caramel and bread mixed with mild fruity esters, a hint of dark fruits, and a slightly darker malt on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a lively carbonation. Overall an easy drinking, balanced, brew with smooth flavours of caramel, bread, and dark fruits.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. An amber pour with a white head; aroma of malt and some grassy hops; rich fruity taste; and some lingering malt. Pleasant enough.

On tap at Taco Mac: Pours amber with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel, grains, and a little toffee. Taste is slight bubble gum, a little caramel, and sweet malt. Almost no detectable hop notes. Medium body, high carbonation, this is a decent red.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: more Shark Week...APPEARANCE: orange bron amber body; two-finger, creamy off-white head; slowly effervescent and rather hazy; a decent-looking pint; nice, thick lacing... AROMA: floral hops mesh with caramel malts; sweet confectioners’ sugar is front and center ... PALATE: medium-bodied, chewy and active--a pub draft, in its consistency... TASTE: strong malty presence; mellow hops roll off the teeth and take a backseat to the nutty, somewhat buttery aftertaste--a confident offering...OVERALL:a pint for conversing over or eating pubfare with--a sessionable beer that sits well in the Bell’s sampler case...

Cask at Churchkey. Amber color (I would hope so), thick off white head, solid lacing. Subtle caramel aroma and a taste of smooth butterscotch balanced with a late subtle hoppiness. Decent.

Nice fruity hops, caramel malt. Well balanced. Quite good for one of the more mainstream bells products.
