A: The beer is hazy amber in color. It poured with a finger high white head that slowly died down, leaving wispy patterns of bubbles floating on the surface.
S: There are aromas of caramel malts in the nose along with hints of citrus hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell with additional flavors of bready malts and has a light amount of bitterness in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very well balanced and isn’t too malty.

poured into mug

A - first off this pours an excelent head that lingers for a long time

S - smells of delicious carmel, like candy bar carmel!

T - taste like carmel and toffee, and fruit(I cant tell you what fruit, maybe apricot?) my brain is searching for the taste im tasting! im thinking its apricot that has me stumped

M - Very soft, yet i would consider it light, maybe more fluffy

Overall like all the Bell's beers im very impressed. This is a great Amber!

This beer looks like a perfect example for an amber. The color is, well, amber, and on the pour you get minimal foam. The carbonation was pretty minimal, and not surprisingly, the foam dissipated quickly.

Off the top a get a little bit of sourness. I get some light malt and some caramel.

In each drink I get the typical amber flavor and a little bit of metalic.

This is a good example of amber. I recommend trying it out.
