3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 Another really good session beer from Bells. This will probably be one of my session beers from now on. What does it taste like? It taste like a regular beer should. If a macro brewery could produce this cheaply, the micro breweries would go out of business. I’m glad they can’t, just means more of a selection for us.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
