Another of the Bell's lineup that i am thrilled to be able to pick up in central PA finally.
Pours a murky orange color. A nice foamy off white head builds as you pour and continues building to a nice full one inch cap after you finish. This slowly drops to a nice think coating on the top of beer that leaves nice spotches of lacing on the glass. Sweet toffee like smell with some spicey citrus hops notes. It smells like a clean, smooth beer. The malt is really the backbone of this beer when you taste it. Everything else seems to go the the background but things are balanced so that it is not overly sweet. Some earthyness to the malt. Nice dry finish. Very smooth and easy drinking. Overall this has been my biggest surprise of the Bell's beers I've tried. It was the one I was expecting the least from but probably the one I enjoyed the most. Not a knock your socks off brew but a good solid every day beer.
