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.

This is a well balanced amber ale that almost tastes like it has some honey added int he brewing process. I really like this one. great in its category.

Bottle @ Bradís house Minneapolis. Pours a hazy burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Nutty, toasty grainy, earthy, lightly sweet aroma. Somewhat creamy, bitter herbal, straw, toasty bready flavor. Ok.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 RBSG2003 (extended) On tap at the brewery. Clear, deep golden brew. Small, creamy, white head which retains well. Nice lacing. The aroma is of white bread, butterscotch, honey-butter and a subtle, unidentified, fuzzy fruit. Creamy, rich flavor. Caramelly and malty up front. Nicely bittered and balanced on the backside. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter, dry, grassy finish!

Sammy (9665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
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.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2002
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.

GT2 (9364) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Pours a hazy copper/light amber with a good head the fades quickly. Looks actually more like a hefeweisen dunkel. Very little lacing. Aroma is of slight grass, caramel malts, straw, vanilla extract. Creamy almost buttery taste with good balancing hops. Taste is fairly light but with a solid malt backbone with lots of caramel. A solid amber.

Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Sweet pineapple-orange flavor with moderate hops. Good nice tasting beer - just nothing too spectacular.
