Bell’s Christmas Ale

Cloudy orange color, nice head and lacing.
A good bit of malt on the nose.
The flavor doesn’t follow that lead though. The hoppiness bites the tongue first but is quickly smoothed by a malt sweetness. The sweetness then dominated until being replaced by the bitterness at the back of the mouth again. Finished nice and clean.
Perhaps not what I expected but I liked it well enough.
Overall rating: 3.55
