Pours with a surprising haze. Fruity, toasted and caramel hop aroma with some citrus hops. Sweet and malty. The hops could be amped up a little and the alcohol is noticeable. Rather thin in body. The bitterness is a little rough. Not my favorite.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color. Mostly taste of sweet malt, not much hop here. Finishes pretty smooth though.

Tap @ bells. Wihtout smelling Im guessing this is going to be more dimethyksulfide. SUPRISE! its diacetal. Nose also feauters some honey. Mouth is thin with some vinenna flavours and lemon hops.

Pours amber, a bit hazy.
Not intense in nose. Very bitter in mouth.
An unbalanced brew for my taste.

Sometimes good, sometimes not. When it's good the malt profile is awesome. Lots of rich complexity that has a solid backbone well into the finish. Easily one of the best. When it's bad, however, there is a persistent sourness that wrecks the beer. Serving it very cold alleviates the problem a little. If I could be assured of getting the "good" version each time I made a purchase then I would always have this in my fridge. Instead, the schizophrenic quality control issue relegates this brew to a dissappointed glance each time I see it on the shelf. When this beer is good I would rate it close to a 4.

slightly sweet flavor, pale malts; not bad but would not be first choice when seeking out an amber style ale.

Medium Cloudy amber; best way to put it, I am not a fan of Bellís. Bitter finish,
