BierMeHoos (383) - Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Where: The Big Stick, Navy Yard DC. How: Pint draft pour. Appearance: Nice amber color with ruby highlights. Aroma: Alcohol, not much to note. Taste: Typical caramel toasted barley malt, not much else. Palate: Medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall: I’m afraid I’ve come to expect more from Bells but this is just an average attempt to me. Bit boring.

on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Clear bright copper amber color, bubbly white head, stripes of lace. Taste is malt and toffee that adds mild fizz on the swallow, then ushers in enough hops for a balanced finish, with both malt and hops maintaining a presence. Not a lot of body, but what there is, is good.

ctipping (365) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2015
On tap at Brewhouse Gallery. Served in a pint glass. Light amber body. Medium white head. Smells bready and a little fruity. Taste is very bready, pushing into flavors of sweet caramel. Mild toastiness and astringency in the finish. Medium body. Well carbonated. Nothing amazing, but pretty drinkable.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2015
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mild caramel and nuts blend. It pours a clear, light honey hue with a dense, gelatin, white foam that has moderate lace and a light retention. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The smooth and oily texture has a fizzy carbonation and a medium body flavored with caramel malt and nuts. It finishes with a light spice zest and a smooth citrus with a mild aftertaste that’s primarily roasted nuts, bread, and a slightly burnt note.
