Bought a 12 FL OZ bottle of this from Lukas Liquor in Ellisville, MO for $1.49 and added to my Mix-A-Six Pack. Poured from the boring, red bottle into a Pint Glass.

Aroma- Starts off with the average amber aroma and then corn syrup aroma.

Appearance- Poured a 5 finger head with a clear, amber body. The head dies down quickly and leaves almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Flavor- CS

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, and watery at the finish.

Overall Impression- Not the best from Bell's. I'm hopping there was going to be more mouthfeel and flavor but too sweet for a amber ale. Won't go back to this beer but wouldn't sway someones opinion to a negative one about this beer.
