Very nice amber. I wish I could get this at the store.

Plots a very nice color with excellent pearly white head. Head does not retain well but nice lacing is present.

Smell is not much to talk about. Slight grassy aroma but very slight.

Taste is quite pleasant. It's a mild beer with slight hoppiness. Finish is crisp and refreshing. great session beer!

Mouth feel is nice but a little thin feeling.

Overall a very good product by Bells!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

pour was pretty good with a nice medium amber color with nice clarity to it and a small white head on top. Aroma of nice carmael malts and a dose of piney hops. Warming really brought out the sweet notes here, very solid. Nice medium body and very well carbonated. Strong caramel and bready malt undertones were very prominant with hops an afterthought but strong enough to really shine through in the finish.
