Bell’s Amber Ale

I worried about this one at first, but it somewhat redeemed itself in the end.  Bell’s Amber Ale poured like rusty water and produced a minimal fleeting, head.  There was noticeable carbonation, so it’s not as if it is totally flat, just a little disappointing in the presentation.  The bouquet is great, being sweet, malty and possessing a hint of citrus in the finish.  Great malty taste, notes of carmel, and a whiff of stinky yeast in the finish.  So, the taste experience is a Bell curve, coincidentally, with the high point being the actual act of swallowing.  If you want to try a GREAT beer from Bell’s, try the Double Cream Stout on a crisp fall day. 

And Go White Sox.
