Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a clear...well...amber. Had a thin bubbly head and no lacing. Subtle carbonation.
S - Earthy malt. Little roasted, little caramel. Nothing too wild.
T - Malty. Roasted. Touch sweet. Nice amber.
M - Smooth and silky. Biscuit-like.
D - Very easy drinker. A bit earthy/malty, but could drink these all night. Not my favorite bells offering, but a good amber none-the-less.

3.71/5 rDev -3.1%

Tried to rate this one to style, as it might be one of my least favorite styles. This one tasted along the lines of an ESB.
The appearance was a little on the orange side, translucent with some head along the edge. The smell was grainy with what to me is a typical British pale ale yeast. The taste follows this, grainy with a little lemon added to produce a faint copper taste that I associate with ESBs. I guess the good thing is that since it does remind me of an ESB, it does have a hop presence, which some of the style seem devoid of. The feel is a bit watery, but I think that of almost any beer in this style.
I will probably not revisit this beer unless it's the sole option, but that's due more to my preferences than the quality of the beer. If not obvious, if you're an ESB fan, I think you should give it a whirl to decide for yourself.
Serving type: on-tap
