The mythical beer has appeared. Formerly only a phant'sy of Bell's Seasonal Calendar, there it was on the shelf in front of me - Bell's Sparkling Ale. And here it is, below:
Beautiful. Let's have a closer look at that lovely label, eh?
Ahhh. And as to the golden lovely ale itself - Bell's calls it "an American Triple" - it delivers on all counts. Light and refreshing despite the 9% ABV, it has a satisfying mouth-feel and just enough (but not too much) Belgian aftertaste. Perhaps the best Bell's non-stout I've so far tasted - but there's more to come on both the stout and non-stout front, soon.
