Bell's Third Coast Old Ale
My 300th beer review.
Appearance: Opaque brown body, thick khaki-colored head that dissipates quickly. 4.0/5
Smell: Very sweet, citrusy. Notes of grapefruit and pineapple. Strongly yeasty, astringent with alcohol. An interesting and deep aroma with plenty of unexpected notes that nonetheless are intriguing. 4.5/5
Taste: Very "hot" with alcohol, beneath which are intense hops and a malty backbone. Sweet, dry on the finish. Leaves a somewhat fruity and dry aftertaste. 4.0/5
Mouthfeel: Thick, with moderate carbonation and a strong hoppiness. 4.0/5
Drinkability: I like this beer fresh, but I'd be fascinated to see how well it ages. I may cellar a few for a year or two to see if the alcohol becomes less prominent over time. 4.0/5
