Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours deep red amber, bordering on a brownish crimson. 1-1/2 fingers white foam with good retention and lacing.
Mild sweet smell, but otherwise not able to grab anything specific.
Taste is mixture of light fruit, mild hop and caramel sweet. Possesses a real bite/toasted sharpness at the finish that makes the close memorable.
Good carbonation in the mouthfeel.
Drinkable brew - this was my first Bell beer, and I'd be interested in sampling some of the other varietals whould I get the opportunity.

This offering pours a deep burgundy color with a small off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is subtle but pleasant with a nice balance of malt and hops as well as an underlying alcohol note. It sips smooth and clean with a light to medium body. The flavor is pleasant and quite balanced between the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops. This is definitely a beer that you could sit and drink a number of and enjoy each one. Not particularly complex or remarkable but very balanced and damn good.

Pours a clear red-copper with a healthy beige head that quickly drops to a film with a ring around the glass. Decent retention; some lacing.
Pervasive alcohol sourness with malt notes. Spicy caramel up front with sweet aromas and some hoppy astringency.
Rich, full flavor. Mellow malt tastes with a little caramel and a quick touch of dry hops at the end. Very nice.
Medium body and a little thin-feeling with prickly carbonation and a coating, silky finish.
Mellow, inoffensive, and drinkable. This beer is certainly nothing to write home about but is a solid red beer and would make for a good session beer or could be a good stepping stone into craft for non-beer-drinkers.
Might have again if I had access; a safe bet for a solid, generally enjoyable brew.
Serving type: on-tap
