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.

12 oz bottle thanks to Duane. Light amber pour with a smallish head. Faded to a ring pretty quickly. Aromas were minimal, but what I got were pretty sweet. Sweetness in the flavor too. Some hoppiness, but not a lot. Mostly caramel malts and bright fruit. Average but drinkable

Bottle. Pours with a white foamy head that laces well. Dark amber with a slight haze. The aroma has some heave coffee notes. Medium body with a flat finish, the extra hops are evident.

"Bells slipped a little here. Poured a cloudy amber color with some sedmientation. Aroma was of strong caramel little citrus Flavor was the same with some hops and citrus. Good beer, but not as good as other bells"

(12 oz bottle: Obtained 30-Jan-06 in trade with Sully, thanks Mike!) Batch 7206. The fruity and vaguely malty nose isnít especially aromatic, but thatís okay, this beer isnít especially flavorful or interesting either. Generic maltiness I normally attribute to a pale ale at a mediocre brewpub is moderately sweet, fruitiness is up-front, and grassy hops is mildly bitter for acceptable balance, but the flavor is just plain boring. I occasionally taste a bit of herb and spice, the distant flavor of coriander being triggered in my mind. Medium "plus" body is very nice, as is the moderate carbonation, but this beer sits lifelessly on the palate because the beer lacks any snap or zip. Dirty orange color is fully cloudy and the small, foamy, off-white head shows solid retention and patchy lacing. Even though Bellís makes a lot of great beers, this totally failed to capture my attention and is a below-average amber ale to me.

A really nice beer. Pours orangey amber with a decent head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is sweet citrus, flavor is malty and sweet -- the sweetness increases with drinking but never becomes cloying. It tastes as if there is some wheat in this brew but I have no idea. On the bottle it says "A unique copper ale crafted from mostly pale malts for a rich, sweet flavor unlike any other." Hey, theyíre right.

Quite enjoyable and readily available around southeast michigan. To me this is almost an ale, lager hybrid as some of the malts and hops are those often used in lagers, but the process is ale. Itís smooth, crisp, aromatic. Malts are kinda bready, hops seem like a german/american hybrid, if that makes any sense. Nice medium body fits casual drinking with meals and such, or times when you care to really think about your beer.

Batch #7183. Amber/orange in color. Aroma is citrus and some hops. Fairly sweet in taste. I try to always have some of this in the fridge. Very good.

Pleasing look. Amber color with a nice head. Looks better then it tastes. Not much of a WOW factor. Seems to have an abudance of hops and malts, but nothing prominent. I wouldnít drink more than one at a time. Maybe best for me for an after dinner drink. My wife enjoyed this more, so Iíll likely be trying this again.

draft. Hoppy citrus aroma. Light burnt orange appearance with no head. Almost no malt flavor with the dominance of hops. light bodied with lots of carb feel and a slight malt feel and a balance of hops from start to finish. Didnt care for this beer much.
