3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice surprise for an Amber Ale. I was expecting something along the Killianís line but this produced a hint of hops flavor I was not expecting, which made it taste like a hybrid of some kind. Very interesting. Rich color and good aroma. I am anxious to try Bellís other offerings. The only downside was a faint metallic taste toward the end. Not sure what that was about.

why do we need an amber ale form Bellís? This is just mindblowingly run of the mill.

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.
