Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Red in color. The palate is great- creamy, smooth, just the right amount of carbonation. Smells hoppy, spicy, floral. Tastes hoppy, a bit fruity and fairly sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 rerate, May 22, 2007: Right there with Ipswich as the most perfectly balanced beer. Perfect amount of sweet caramel malt, crisp and delicious. Original rating, Mar 24, 2006 (3.9):rich copper color with a small head and nice lacing. very nice, if slightly subdued aroma of sweet malt with a hoppy presence. Flavor is very lightly sweet and carmely with a fair amount of hoppieness. Rich fruity tones. Very nicely balanced, finishes moderatly hopped and lightly dry.

foutzdj (7) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2006 does not count
poured a nice copper color with a sweet aroma. Was pretty cloudy with sediment. Flavor is sweet with a hops bite. Palate was fair, nothing special. Good but not the best amber ale

from the bottle. Your basic brown/amber ale with a little more sweetness and fruit. Good quality but not outstanding.

Bottle from Sully Thanks!

Pours a nice amber, with a slim head but clinging lace. Aroma is strawberry malt with hops afterthoughts. Bits of cereal interdispersed as well. Flavor is a blunt fruity malt flavor, with touches of hops and bitters. Palate suits. Another quality brew from Bells.

Draught @ The Bier Stube, Moline, IL. Pours a nice clear brownish orange. Aromas of caramel, hint of fruit and hops. Nice creamy malt taste with a nice finish.

PGA324 (86) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Amber/orange color, clear body with average creamy off-white head. Lacing good. Not too powerful in terms of aroma - light hops. Noticeable fizzy carbonation, flavor long in duration with light/moderate bitterness and notes of citrus.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2006
In the bottle. Pours medium amber with a slightly off-white head that never quits. Very strong malty and doughy aroma. Flavor has medium hops, but a strong yeasty and malty taste. Slight odd medicinal flavor as well. maybe a little bit like tea. Mild carbonation and a beautiful beer to the end.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Pours light orangish amber with a fully receding tan head. Aroma of toasted bready malts, estery notes of pears and nectarines. Taste is crispy cracker cereal maltiness. Toasted bread with a smokey sweetiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with spritzy carbonation. Good, but mostly forgettable.
