3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a orangish red with a thick creamy off white head. Aroma is a nice sweet caramel and toffee backed by a slightly citric and piney hop character. Flavor starts with sweet malt and gets a nice fresh grassy in the middle. Picks up a ever so slight bitterness towards the finish but stays reserved through a mellow and dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very refreshing and easy drinking, nicely balanced, not trying to be too much.

On tap at pub. Golden orange color. could be my imagination but all beers at bell’s pub have a fresh taste to them. Light with a bit of floral hops and sweetness. Nothing overwhelming.
