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.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Bottle purchased at Bells. Rich copper body and puffy white head, somewhat musty aroma. Thin malt, low hop character, yeast stands out a bit. Nothing special, just a pretty average ale, but tasty.
Earlier Rating: 1/14/2004 Total Score: 3.8
Nice amber/orange color with tons of suspended sediments that don't even move-this is quite hazy. Tastes of hopps and fruit, though I can't really taste what.

One of the better amber beers Iíve had. Itís actually really hazy which is interesting. Smells like sweet caramel, grass and honey. Taste is sweet, malty, and slightly bitter. Itís really easy to drink and tastes much better than most amber style ales.

Nice deep amber with a short tan head. Aroma of caramel, biscuits. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation. Get some cocoa nibs and some bittering on finish. Pretty nice.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle: Pours a nice reddish copper color with a light tan head. Aromas come off as primarily sweet bread, but there is some nice citrusy fruit going on there too. Taste is very good, exactly what Iíd refer to as "easy drinking" there is a bit of a grassy earthy quality that comes in on the taste that I didnít get in the aroma. Very good, but not really anything flashy or exciting.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - NOV 21, 2015
5.8%ABV. †Amber Ale. Poured out of the bottle a rich cloudy amber. †14ļSRM, Nose has sweet well-roasted malty aroma. Maybe residual aroma of ripe oranges or tangerines. Mouthfeel is sudsy and full-bodied. There are some nice graham cracker, wheat toast and toasted almond flavors. †There are some other nutty flavors of hazelnuts and acorns. Finish is abbreviated and clean. †No hop character. My favorite of Bellís creations.

generallee08 (767) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a packaged on date and an abv of 5.8%. Appearance: The body has a dark brownish amber color with a light haze and a creamy tall light tan head on top. Itís head fades slow and makes nice lacing on the glass. Smell: I get some sweet maltiness and doughy bready notes. I also pick up a slight orange rind note from the hops. Taste / Palate: This one has light and balanced mix of sweet bready maltiness and orange rind like hop bitterness. The feel is fairly light and softly carbonated.
