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.

Pours a clear amber with a frothy white head. Decent amount of lacing. A light hoppy and nutty aroma. Well-balanced flavor and an easy-drinker, canít ask for much more for this style.

Another amber ale I enjoyed very much. I have not yet found a Bellís beer that is not enjoyable.

Amber pour, nice tannish head. Bright aroma. A nice balanced taste, dry hops and caramel malt notes. Almost like a bock, nice fruitiness.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 Poured from brown bottle into a pilsner glass a: a good hazy, rusty orange/gold color. beer is very cold so a gentle pour only yields a small amount of head. minimal lacing and little visible carbonation in the sediment. this is not a clear beer. s: slight hops with a spicy bit of sweetness, very subtle smell overall. t: mild but upfront hop bite gives way to a sort of fruity sweet malt taste. oranges and pumpkin bread? quite well balanced with nothing stealing the show. extremely refreshing despite the haze and easily sessionable. very tasty beer. i was expecting more alcohol hotness but thankfully it is not noticeable. m: soft but full. maybe a little wheaty which i generally donít care for but is nice here. carbonation is present but very subdued. lingering flavors seem to maintain balance with maybe a bit of hop stickiness dominating the finish. o: my first experience with Bellís Amber was a good one. nice tasty and well balanced beer will not put off anyone except maybe those freaked out by cloudy appearance. not a favorite but definitely glad I tried it!

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Pours hazy copper with lots of sediment.. Tan head. Has a sweet, mellow caramel aroma that is very inviting. Smells malty and reminds me of leather. Very well balanced with a Belgian taste as well as a fruity taste. Finishes nicely. The palate is smooth and greasy feeling, in a good way. One of the few amber ales that I actually like.

Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy amber with white head. Small particles visible in beer. Aroma is caramel malts, a bit of toasty bread. Flavor is slightly toasty and caramelly, and the yeast is present. Not overly exciting, but a solid amber ale.

Fantastic Amber ale. Poured a huge head in my scooner and lasted till the last drop. Aroma of flowery hops pineapple and as it warms brown sugar. More on the sweet side and could use a bit more bittering hops. When it warms the flavor takes on a more dark malt taste. Overall just awesome for the style.

A good beer for a stle i am not too fond of. Pours amber (surprise) with a modest off-white head. Prominent malt presence with hints of fruit and hops. Nice balance. Definitely a fair amount of complexity.
