3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, no batch number. Smells and tastes like Amber ale with a good malt and hops flavor. Some pepperiness in the background. I guess it does taste mildly better than an Amber Ale, but then again Ive had more than a few beers at this point.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. I am a little suspicious as to whether this is a repackage job, but here goes... Pour is a slightly hazy deep amber and head is a little better than a finger of dense beige foam at first. Aromas have a bit of a peppery edge to them with some sweet malt and a little touch of floral hops. Flavor revolves around a nice and full malt presence and branches out into a little bit of a peppery hops. If I had to guess, I would say this is a Bells Amber Ale that has maybe been less filtered.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
purchased at the eccentric cafe, 12 oz bottles. pours out a mostly clear amber, with some yeast sediment dispersed. malty scotch-ale aroma, very reminiscent of the new Christmas Ale from Bells. Lightly hoppy citrus elements, but malt-forward. no alcohol heat but has some spicy warming flavors. fun beer.
