3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Roziís in Cleveland. Lightly hazy orange amber body with a good size creamy white head (3+). Toasty grains, wheaty notes in aroma carry over to a grainy flavour of sweet toasty malt accented by a wheat like tartness. Average palate. Meh, okay but a bit dull especially for Bells. 6/3+/6/3/12

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy copper/light amber with a good head the fades quickly. Looks actually more like a hefeweisen dunkel. Very little lacing. Aroma is of slight grass, caramel malts, straw, vanilla extract. Creamy almost buttery taste with good balancing hops. Taste is fairly light but with a solid malt backbone with lots of caramel. A solid amber.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of daknole. Danke dak. Batch 9020, so about three months in the bottle. Pours a gently hazed brown amber with a medium to large white head. Soft caramel and malt on the nose, and a subtle hoppiness. Gentle malt and lightly sweet. Finishes with a subtle hop bitterness. Overall just a very subtle and light beer. Nothing bold, nothing bigÖjust easy drinking tasty beer. Nicely done.

Light aroma of orange citrus, caramel, toast, and rye. Malty flavor, with notes of orange citrus, toast, and a little spice. Well-balanced, malty, and a bit sweet. Mild and light-medium bodied, with a dry finish. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber in color (what, did you think it would be blue?) with a small white head. There is a sweetness from the malts but,not as many hops as I expected in the aroma or the flavor. I did get some citrus flavor as well as caramel. Not bad, just not my typical style.
