Bell’s Brewery, Comstock, MI

From the Bell’s farm to your holiday.  A smooth, highly drinkable, malt driven ale, made with Michigan grown barley and a blend of Pacific Northwest and Michigan hops.  A bit of cheer from the north country, sure to make any occasion festive.

5.5% ABV

Hazy amber in color with a nose similar to an ESB: light apple juice.  We picked this beer as we brewed a Scottish Ale 70/- not long ago and enjoying the last few bottles.  This version is sweeter than our homebrew with a bit more bitterness at the tail end.  Also apple juice on the finish.  Very drinkable.

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  No
