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.

Bottled. Thanks pailhead. Pours a cloudy....amber with some orangish hints in it. Cloudy with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is of very bready malts. Grainy and doughy and slightly sweet and yeasty. No hops in the nose. Flavor was sweet upfront of caramel and cereal grains, definitely a malt monster with a bit of malty nuttiness. Slight hop bitterness and earthy hops, possibly UK hops with maybe a tinge of grapefruit. Ester profile is moderate but gives just enough fruity balance. Finishes moderate dry. Body was quite full, especially for an amber; goes down smooth and easily with adequate carbonation. Great session beer. Solid but not íblow-you-out-of-the-waterí like some other Bellís.

I found this to be too sour and unbalanced. Almost thinking that maybe my 6 pack was stale and will rerate another time

Bottled. Pours copper. Very balanced brew, but then also somewhat on the fruity sweet side also. Nice creamy texture on the palate. Very mild. Sweet pear and other fruity flavors dominate the taste. Pale malts, and mild hops. Very mild, but distinct flavor.

Sammy (10564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
A good transition beer. Not a bold strong Bellís but a very decent brew, better than a national brand anything. Nice hops like a pale ale. Well malted. Very good after fish.

Very heavy caramel, light notes of hops, powdered chocolate. Taste is sweet with caramel, some wheat charicteristics, and light hops in the background.

Like others have stated, this feels more like an IPA. However, there is a nice malt presence. Caramel malts, floral, fruity flavors. Nice, round mouthfeel. Well balanced and enjoyable.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2005
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.

1FastSTi (3359) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2005
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.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2005
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.

(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.
