Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy medium copper with a 2 finger bubbly white head. Lots of sediment floating around. Decent lacing throughout.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt with a hint of floral and citrus hops.

Taste: Sweet citrus up front followed by caramel in the middle and toasted malt with just a hint of hops at the finish. Mildly bitter, dry and smoky aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Very high drinkability. You could knock back several of these without any problem.

Overall: Very good beer overall and one of the best I've had in the style. I would definitely recommend it. Another solid offering from Bell's.

Poured a nice amber-orange color with little chunkies floating around the glass. Actually had a cascading effect as it settled in the glass to develop a nice two-finger head nice ring laces going down the glass.

Smell is slightly sweet, with bready malts and fruit.

Taste is the same. Bready, yeasty, fruity hoppiness and good balance.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, slight bite at the end, and good carbonation.

All around good amber ale. I would definitely revisit this one in the future.
