2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is very bitter and very hoppy. The hops are almost overpowering. Greatly distracting from my enjoyment from the rest of the brew. I donít quite get it. Maybe I donít have tolerance for hops or something. Every time someone mentions nice restrained hops, I can rest assured that Itís going to make my mouth burn. So, thatís my soapbox rant for today.

A light copper color with lots of sediment. Head is a frothy tan. Not much aroma. Flavor is a bit too sweet. Hoppy, but not bitter, with a hint of straw and nuttiness. Not all that great.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 Pours a cloudy copper with a medium white head. Aroma and taste are a muddy mix of bread, earth, faint fruits and some hint of hops. I was not very happy with this brew from Bellís... everything was just too muddy... nothing bold or even defined. They make some very good beers but this one just didnít work for me.

Sample at Bellís brewery at Eccentric Cafe. Looks amber color, smells carmel, hoppy. Tastes like a mild ale. Thin head, no lace, thin ring. No session brew. Pairs well with a heavy beef, pork roast dish. I wouldnít drink it on its own. Would have again..

12oz bottle---shaker. Pours a nice dark orange with a one finger fluffy head. Aroma is kid of bready and sour. Taste is grain with bitter on the back end. Very flat and thin palate. Based on other reviews, this might be an old bottle because this is pretty terrible.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks kerenmk. Clear amber. Aroma of cardboard, malt, a bit of caramel and a bit of stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, cardboard and some stale hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old.

Not the best I've had from bells. More bitter than I expected and almost flat. I dobt I got a bad beer as it was fresh from the store but just didn't taste quite right

A decent amber, slightly watery. Very light hop presence, creating a smooth amber experience.
