Bell's - Christmas Ale

Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Bell's Christmas Ale
Bell's Brewery Inc.
8938 Krum Ave.
Galesburg & Comstock
Est. 1985 

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.4 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 12.0 

Postmortem Brew Review
Brilliant copper color.
Noticeable malt roasted sweetness and hops aromas.
Foamy, two fingered tan head that dissipates very slowly.
Minimal lacing on glass.
Malts stand out with some bright hops at the end.  Also has dry spice finish.
Light to medium bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Definitely light for a Scottish style ale but suprisingly refreshing for a Christmas ale.  There was some detectable spice note, but not as present as in other winter/Christmas beers.  It is a very sessionable drink, similar more to an Oktoberfest beer, I thought.

Bell's and's a natural!
