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.

The aroma was pleasant. I would barely call the appearance red. It had very little carbonation.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JUN 18, 2004
Toasty bread and crystal malts in the nose. Smooth mouthfeel with biscuty malts and a littl hop in the background. Outstanding toasty finnish.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Cloudy orange brew. Smell is slight caramel with earthy hops. The flavor was unimpressive. A little toasted and slight hoppy flavor. Not much sticks out to make me want more.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Good clowded amber color. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, but ends with a small crispness to it. Flavor is a wheatish malt but rather sweet. Who knew that something so good could come from a superfund site?

On tap at a local bar. A nice copper amber color with a moderate head. Good mouthfeel with a smooth flavour.

thetrifecta (29) - Bellís country, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Tasty amber with some unique characteristics for the style. It seems all of Bellís products have just a slightly different taste that I canít quite put my finger on. Great mouthfeel and a nice hint of mildly roasty sweetness with a good dose of hops to finish.

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Pours a copper color with a huge white head and excellent lace. Aroma and flavor is of hops. This is what I would describe as a cloudy pale ale. Nice thick mouthfeel to go along with the other sences. Good stuff.

Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is a nice blend of malts and hops. Pours more of an transparent orange than an amber. A little sediment floating around. Not much of a head. Taste is sweet (caramel) and finishes just slightly bitter. Very short lived, slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice balance. I donít really find anything all that spectacular about this beer. It is good, but an average rating of 3.6? Bellís reputation?

Update: On my last sip, I noticed this intensely beautiful aroma that I associate with my favorite pilsners, of all things. Also, I marvel at the subtlety of this beer. This is really excellent, quiet and elegant. Top notch. Old: Yeasty beer with a long lasting fluffy head. Slightly sour aroma, but everything about the smell is slight. Flavor is a bit slight, too, but what is there is quite nice. Some light, creamy apricot notes keep it interesting. I like it more and more as I get through the glass. Fine beer, though if I were to order one of Bell?s lighter beers, it would be their magnificent brown ale.
