3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into my pint. Served at 45 degrees. The aroma was quite powerful and had a hay aroma with a touch of grass, fruit and flowers. Not my style but not bad. Poured a hazy light red with a huge light tan foamy head that left lots of lacing, flavor started sweet with fruity, peppery,grassy taste that finished with a long harsh bitter that was a bit too much for my taste. Body was medium with thin oily texture, very soft carbonation and as mentioned before a long bitter finish. Not my style of beer but I usually like what Bell’s has to offer. I didn;t hate this beer, but I didn;t care all that much for it and wouldn’t ever buy another. Not bad, just not good either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Old rating. A bellwether for ambers. One of my old town go to beers. Pours a clear copper red with a modest eggshell head. Nut-forward aroma with grain, caramel and a hint of stone fruit. Taste is more of the same with the sweetness from the malts and and slight hoppy bitterness balancing well. Watery mouthfeel. Medium light body. Nice smooth finish.
