Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Pours a murky orange color with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma is pleasant with some toffee, butterscotch, citrusy hops, and a bit toasted. Taste is pretty well balanced with more of the citrus and malty sweetness noted in the aroma.

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.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a packaged on date and an abv of 5.8%. Appearance: The body has a dark brownish amber color with a light haze and a creamy tall light tan head on top. It’s head fades slow and makes nice lacing on the glass. Smell: I get some sweet maltiness and doughy bready notes. I also pick up a slight orange rind note from the hops. Taste / Palate: This one has light and balanced mix of sweet bready maltiness and orange rind like hop bitterness. The feel is fairly light and softly carbonated.

From tap, pours a nice copper color with little head. Taste is sweet caramel malt, nutty, with a little hop kick before finish. As expected, but a decent example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a sharp berry note that fades and reveals caramel, nuts, wood, and light citrus. The beer is clear with (go figure) and amber hue, and is topped by a dense, white head that has moderate retention, but very little lace. The taste is a medium sweet with a subtle, medium light bitter. The texture is oily, with fizzy carbonation and a light body. Flavors of grain, caramel, bitter citrus, and bread crust emerge first, and finishes crisp with woody notes, as well as coffee, subtle citrus, and light nuts. The aftertaste is lightly sticky with bitter citrus, rye bread crust, and a light medicinal lingering.

Tasted at Kansas City Beerfest at Union Station October, 2015. I had so many that this rating might be a bit off. ;)

cloudy amber with slight head. Medium carbonation. Smooth balance or malt and hops with a bit of a floral hint. Nothing really stands out. Not a crisp beer but an easy drinker.
