3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Someone gave this to me. Good beer, had a fruity aroma and flavor. Was smooth on the palate. Suprised that it is 6% as I didnít notice an alcohol presence as smooth as it went down the hatch. Sorry Turbo just realized your that someone.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is extremely weak but whatís there is malty (one may risk inhaling the brew!) Nice honey-amber tint; small head, thin bubbles. Surprisingly flavorful compared with the meagre aroma. Toffee malts dominate, with a nice hops balance that cascades on through in the finish along with some vague watermelon tinges. Very crisp, clean mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap at the BW3ís on Mayfair. Boy was I suprised to see a Bellís handle at the bar! Hazy amber body with a generous foamy white head. Soapy lacing. Apple sweetness and caramel malt with leafy hops in the aroma. Deep carmel malt flavor with yeasty bread dough undertones and sharb but unobtrusive apple skin / plant stem hops. Overall the beer is malt-forward. An enjoyable amber but nothing to get excited about.

Bottom poured murky (nearly opaque) brownish copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, butterscotch, and caramel malts. Taste of nutty and caramel malts with a citrus, lightly bitter, hop finish.

Slightly hazy amber with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with citrus and maybe a touch of vanilla. Rich malty flavor with more sweetness than I expected and a fair hop presence as well. Satisfying finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber color with white head and a little lacing. It had a bread/grain smell. There was an almost bitter fruit taste that I didnít really care for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber in color indeed! With a nice lacing white head, as well. The aroma is malty, bread and caramel tinged with toffee, and light hops. As it warms the aroma shifts more to the hops with a definate citrus and pine scent, and a slight bit of diacetyl. The flavor is sweet, toasty, with fruity yeast in the background. Decent bitterness and a smooth mouthfeel finish this one off. Overall this is still a great beer, itís nice to see Bellís still getting the job done.
