look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Caramel in color like a light brown, pretty clear

Smell: You can smell a hint of caramel and yeast, but there is only a very vague smell overall

Taste: You can definitely taste the caramel malt in the beer. There is a kick of bittering hops in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Good mouthfeel; somewhat thick, but not too thick

Overall: You can't go wrong with this Bell's Amber Ale!

Serving type: bottle

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle with batch code on back label, easily looked up on their website.

Pours a protein particle-infused amber. A tannish head soon becomes a ring. Smell is clean, toasted malts. I get some mellow hops at first taste, then that nice malty backbone. Smooth, silky sweetness it is. Then another round of bitterness, until finally mellowing out into an almost minty aftertaste. Carbonated well, and lively, despite not looking like it. Unique, but almost all Bell's are. Drinks good.
