For bells this isn't all that impressive. It has a proper copper orange color, clear, and holding an inch of white suds for a few minutes before settling. Aroma is sweet and rich, autumnal, bigger in grain character than most of these, sweeter too, but seems alright. Minimally hoppy in nose and taste, these could be increased a little for balance and depth. Toffee and lager yeast in the flavor, long flavor too, but lacking nuance. Because it's a little bolder than others, it's hard to drink a whole lot of it, but maybe that's part of its charm. More filling and hearty for later fall, makes sense, but this is nowhere near as compelling as other bells brews.
