Source: Tasting, 50 Beers on the Wall
light burnt orange with a slight haze, scant beige head, lightly sweet malt aroma, oxidized caramel malt flavor, rich caramel character starts to develop a bit of sweetness, balancing bitterness leads to a long bitter finish, not much character overall
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 11/20

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottles acquired in a few trades. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a large sized off white head. Subtle aromas of caramel, oranges, and dough. Tastes of oranges, caramel, toffee, and cookie dough. Flavors definitely stronger than the aromas. Medium sweet with a light hopiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Dark orange/copper color with a thin and lasting off-white head. Thin lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and maple syrup. Light-bodied and kind of creamy with malt and caramel flavors outright. There is a light hops bitterness in the background as well as a hint of roastiness. The finish is very sweet and lingering. Despite my personal hope that they would do something a little more "dramatic" to celebrate, this is a well-made beer and in the upper eschelon for the style. Congrats to Bell’s on 20 years!
