Bell’s Brewery, Inc., 4.0% abv
Aroma: It has a strong sour, almost cidery aroma. There isn’t much in the way of hops or malts on this one.
Appearance: Pale straw in color, with a light carbonation. Not much head was raised on this brew.
Flavor: Straight up, this tastes like a good hard cider. It is sour and fruity, with no noticeable hop or malt flavors coming through. It finishes with a hint of sweet brown sugar. It would be offensive only if you expected a true style brew, but I am really enjoying this one.
Mouthfeel: This brew is very light on the palate, with a strong carbonation. There is a sour tang that cleanses the palate very well.
Overall Impression: OK, I got a beer here that is pretending to be a hard cider with a sweet, almost brown sugar ending. I am enjoying this brew, but I can see how some people might be opposed to this beer.
