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 BEER WAS HIGHLY RECOMENDED TO ME BY A FRIEND AND TO BE HONEST I WASN’T EXPECTING IT TO BE GREAT. AND IT ISNT. THE AROMA IS NOT VERY PLEASANT SMELLS LIKE A TYPICALY MASPRODUCED BEER. THE HEAD IS NONEXISTENT AND THE CARBONATION LINGERS IN THE GLASS LEAVING WHAT LOOKS LIKE LITTLE FLOATIES, I DONT TASTE ANY FRUITS OR ANYTHING THESE OTHER RATERS HAVE, I JUST TASTE MILD HOPS SMOTHERED IN MALT WITH A VERY SLIGHT SWEETNESS. THIS BEER IS FAR FROM GREAT BUT DOES HAVE A GOOD YET NOT OVERWELMING FLAVOR THAT MAKES IT ENJOYABLE

Draft at redlight redlight. pours a bright amber. not much going on in the nose. i mean, it is literally hard to smell. the flavor is not much bigger. bitter citrus hops come through for sure, but there is enough malt to make it extremely if not overly balanced and the sweetness comes through as much as the bitterness. Perhaps my rating is too low because i in no way dislike this beer. it is a crisp and not bad session beer. however, it is not complex and ultimately easily forgettable.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Batch 9468; Sampled April 2010 An aggressive pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a three-finger thick, lightly tanned head. The beer is a reddish, amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, amber, with flashes of gold color when held up to the light. Hmm, interesting the beer smells of butterscotch… and more butterscotch; while this note is not loud, it over-powers most of the other notes in the aroma. Some biscuit-like malt character is just perceptible at times.

Lightly sweet, with a soft fruitiness to it up front, but the beer finishes with an out-of-place light tartness that I wouldn’t guess was intended. A touch of herbal hops towards the middle and finish lead to a light, but firm bitterness. The fruitiness found here is quite possibly accentuated by the light hop character. The butterscotch diacetyl note from the aroma is much reduced in the flavor (which is often the case), but still adds some buttery notes to the middle and finish of this beer. This has a medium-light body to it that would make for being quite quaffable on a day other than the heat of summer. The tartness in the finish combines with the herbal hop character and gets a touch harsh at times.

I’ll definitely have to get another bottle of this as this is almost definitely heading down the road to an infection; this is not actually horrible tasting though and is even somewhat enjoyable in its own right. Hopefully Bells is able to clean up this infection as I really like a lot of their beers.

Coppery colored pour. A couple off-white bubbles try to form a head, but fail. No lacing. Roasted malt aroma. A little metallic note. Taste is the same with a bigger metallic presence. Okay.

Gerbeer (2162) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours an ugly grainy light orange/brown with light head. Not much aroma. Flavors of dried bread, toasted malts, and light fruit. Expecting more.

bwa5879 (772) - Portage, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Dark amber/mahogany pour with half an inch of white head. Scent of very sour/rubbery and earthy pale malt, sweet hay too. Slightly low carbonation, average light mouthfeel, clean finish. Smooth mix of flavors: carmel malts, piney hops, earthy burton-y pale malts. Nice easy drinking beer thats robustness is unmatched.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JAN 11, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Surprisingly cloudy light amber with a small beige head. Malty nose, some caramel and nuts, biscuits, faint earthy hops. Sweetish malt, some toastiness, soft nutty flavors, lo-med bitterness. Medium bodied, softly carbonated, well rounded but lacks some crispiness. OK.

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Color is a amber/caramel which is hazy. and pours a big off white head, lacing is ok. Aroma is sweet, fruity, herbal, and a little floral. very sweet up front but finishes a little bitter, nice contrast. has a nice carbonated feel on the tongue. nice flavors but could be a little more prominent. Try it if you see it but don’t run out to grab a six pack right this second.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. An amber pour with a white head; aroma of malt and some grassy hops; rich fruity taste; and some lingering malt. Pleasant enough.

Mainuh_man (256) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a frothy white head that lingers. Complex aroma profile nutty, hay, cantelope, leaves, some licorice and sulfur notes. Flavor is fairly muted: mild sweet with nutty malt. Finishes with an a dry, herby hop linger, but otherwise, almost a bit watery. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, while aroms are nice, flavor disappoints.
