Light amber color. Roasty, herbal aroma. Subtle taste of caramel, herbs, and toast. Very good, above average amber make

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Good beer, but this batch seems to have had some filtration issues. All sorts of suspended goodness left over. Not bad, but not a favorite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 This is probably my favorite all around drinkable beer. Itís especially enjoyable on a summer evening. sweat caramel and a little bitter bite at the end. Real nice looking beer sitting in my glass.

Sweet, fruity aroma that follows through in the taste. A strong fruit-malt beginning complimented with a pleasant bitter finish.

Sweet and somewhat grassy on the nose. Poured a cloudy, golden color. Terrific mouthfeel. Tasted sweet initially but hops quickly neutralized things, leaving a pleasant, balanced aftertaste.

I really like this beer. Nice mixture of malts and hops. Pours a fairly small white head. Very cloudy orange/amber color. The flavor is of orange peels, peaches, a bit of a butter taste? Nice everyday beer to have in the fridge this winter.
