Best Brown Ale is the perfect name for this brew. Poured a beutiful rouge hued deep brown with a fine stick to your upper lip head. Carbonation is the key to this brown, it is forward and quickly diminishing in the mouth, making for an excellent flavor profile and an exceptional subtle nuttiness from the toasted malts. Slight caramel sweetness, and a bit creamy, and balanced beautifully with the hop character. A must drink.

Dark brown pour with beige head. Nice malt aroma with a bit of sugar. Malt and caramel taste with the sugar also. Creaminess helps the mouthfeel with the hops showing up a little at the end. Nice beer.

Iím as big a fan of dark beers, this one was a good dark brew as far as Iím concerned. Not the best Bellís produces, but still good.

Forget Newcastle, fellow brown ale nerds. A smooth ale with medium body and nutty taste. Sign me up....and the bottle is not clear!

Tremendously smooth . Light aroma, but great maple flavor and pleasant aftertaste. I am happy with my first Bellís.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is a medium deep brown with some haziness and little floaties from the bottle conditioning. Good carbonation and head retention. Smells of rich malts with bready/bicuity characteristics rise up. Taste some caramel and coffee tones. Feels creamy with a little carbonation bite at the end. Really like this brown ale.

Nice dark appearance and a chocolate/caramel nose. A roasted malt nut flavor that was really good but not as good as expected from the aroma. Still a very nice brown.
