3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, pour is clear to slightly hazy orange-ish red with nice fluffy slightly off white head. Aroma brings notes of ginger, pine, grass, some slight vanilla, hints of earthy tones, sweet caramel notes in there as well. Taste is a mix of the sweet ginger mixing with hints of clove and cinnamon, going into some caramel, vanilla notes, finishing fairly dry from the spices with a lingering earthy and grassy bitterness. Pretty decent stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from JCB. Thanks man! The aroma is kind of malty with hints of caramel, toffee, and iced tea. A little earthy too. Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. The flavor is malty, but kind of flat, and nothing stands out to me. Iced tea, light sweetness. A touch fruity, but in my opinion, it does not really work. Drinks easily. Meh. Probably the least best beer I have tried from Bells.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Tim. Pours a copper hue with a huge foamy white head. A cool label. The aroma is spices and rich sweet hops. The flavor is similar; easygoing, spicy, rich hops. Light malts, not too sweet. A unique brew, interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Liquor Stop in Highland, Indiana. This pours a slightly hazed light brown body with an ample eggshell head that laces profusely. Itís got a rich malty aroma with a touch of dark berries and a bit of butterscotch. Very smooth drinking, the flavor being pretty much what one would expect from the flavor. A light citric bitterness comes in at the finish, out of place for style, but not a bad thing. A bit thin, but not bad.
