COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint-type glass to drink. The beer had a pretty cloudy amber color with a small-to-average foamy white head that had short retention, and modest lacing and cling. Its aroma featured notes of sour pine and earthy hops, along with a floral effect, and some caramel malt. The taste was a slightly sour-grainy blend with a mix of hops and caramel malt for balance. It was a somewhat wet beer with lower carbonation and fizz, and was a bit watery without a dominant mouthfeel.

Not the best I've had from bells. More bitter than I expected and almost flat. I dobt I got a bad beer as it was fresh from the store but just didn't taste quite right ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Deep amber orange color. Small creamy beige head. Subtle toasted malt nose. Notes of bready and grassy hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor has a touch of brown sugar and pecans. Finishes spicy with faint resiny hops. Medium bodied and nicely balanced.

Ahh i still remember fighting with the wedding planner that this was a light beer. Aroma has hints of citrus but mostly malty. Nothing amazing but solid for the style. For the style looks great... Mostly because it’s not Amber colored. More like a pumpkin Taste is malty yeasty. Slightest hint of hops. Subtle citrus notes. Plate is medium medium minus body. Finish is medium... Malty. Carbonation is medium medium plus. Not aggressive. The best Amber I’ve had for sure. This isn’t anything special but for the style a great beer. Perfect for any occasion really.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Malty, a bit fruity, caramel, bread, and mildly hopped finish. Ok.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle 355ml. 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.

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.

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
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.
