BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery - Eccentric Café & General Store
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A smooth, toasty brown ale with hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

Toasty, nutty malts the whole way through. However, the deep brown body had some floaties/residue at the bottom of my glass. Overall, I'd be happy to have this beer again, but not one of Bell's better brews.

A very satisfying brown. Nothing more, nothing less.
