COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Probably the best amber Iíve had. Malty sweet with plenty of hops in there. I detect maybe a little C-hop action, along with some really fruity, fresh malts. Good mouthfeel, Very nice.

Pours to a fizzy white head that quickly but not fully dispapates. The body is a liquid caramel color. There are tiny brown particles in the opaque body. The aroma is kinda weak. Light caramel malts and some apple peel with light nuts. The flavor is malty and lightly floral with an ever so slight nuttiness. I canít say that this is very good. Perhaps an old bottle? The palate is velvety and has decent carbonation. Medium light mouthfeel, yet it still seems watery. This one falls way short of being a good beer.

a nice carmel malt smell w/ a bit of a sugary smell too a bit of a wheat smell to it as well pours a nice copper color w/ a good sized fluffy white very well lascing head and some decent carbonation a little cloudy. Palate is well coating medium bodied fairly smooth. Flavor is an odd lightly carmel malt and a bit of bubble gum. Overall a decent beer but iím not a big fan of the bubble gum piece.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2005
(bottle) hazy amber with very little head. Malt aroma with caramel and hints of green apple. Well balanced-mostly malt in the body but enough hops for balance. A little grassy.

sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Slighty murky amber with a medium, white, bubbly head; a significant amount of small floating sediment toward the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is lightly sugary sweet with malts and caramel; nice floral notes in there; also, apple. Feels very rich and full in the mouth, yet clean and not sticky. Flavor is just too light, though; tastes somewhat like a watery beer even though it doesnít feel like one; fairly nondescriptly malty; light bitter hops through the finish. But please, drink this beer by itself; though it is reasonably complex, almost any food just overpowers this beer. Not a bad beer, but it pales in comparison to virtually all of the other Kalamazoo brews Iíve had.

Beautiful clear golden beer with a small white head. Spicey hoppy bitterness and sweet malts. Would have liked it better with a bigger mouth feel. My favorite beer type is an IPA and this was more like an IPA than I expected and truly enjoyable as a result.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Pours you guessed it amber!! A medium offwhite head settles to about a quarter inch and laces the glass on the way down. Slight citrus in the aroma as well as caramel malts and maybe even a touch of spice. Flavor is caramel malt with a slight hop finish. Very crisp and clean and easy to drink. This is another fine brew from Bellís. A good choice for summer. Lots of flavor and very refreshing!

An amber ale in name only. Everything about this beer screams pale ale. Good, complex aroma. Citrus and hops, as well as dry grass. Orange, with considerable sediment in the bottle. Large, off white head. Flavor is light citrus and hops, with considerable sweetness.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 Had this one bottled. Not a bad red, although different in many ways from a standard red like Killians. Certainly lacks some of the potency of hop flavor, but more nuanced, caramel like sweetness and smoothness. Rerate 10/6/2012: I actually stand by everything I said earlier.

Lots of dry malt in the nose and the body. Hops are subtle. Clean, crisp and smooth.
