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!
