Beer of the Day: Bell’s 25th Anniversary Ale

25th Anniversary Ale

Bell’s Brewery Inc.

Kalamazoo, MI

Amber Ale

8.5%

I got this beer shortly after Liz was awesome enough to introduce me to the Bell’s line-up. I don’t have much to say about this one so I will tell you what Bell’s say.

Celebrating 25 years of brewing, this strong amber ale carries on our tradition of flavorful, balanced beers. Brewed with 100% Michigan-grown barley, 25th Anniversary Ale starts with caramel & light toffee flavors. These are paired with generous kettle & dry-hop additions, yielding a crisp, assertive bitterness and hop flavors ranging from citrus, floral, and piney notes.

Appearance – Amber, dark red, one-finger beige head, good lacing.

Aroma, Citrus, Pine, Floral, slightly malty.

Taste – Tastes as it smells. A bit more malt in the mouth than in the nose. nice crisp bite up front with a good bitter finish in the end all the while keeping a good consistent malt presence.

Mouth Feel – Good carbonation and very smooth texture that lightly and pleasantly coats the mouth.

Drinkability – Great brew. Too bad this isn’t a year long brew and only a specialty release.
