Cloudy amber-orange color with a small head that disappeared quickly. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor, with notes of caramel. This is much better and much more well-balanced than I remember it being a few years ago. I avoided this beer for several years, and was pleasantly surprised tonight when I decided to give it another try. A nice amber ale.

Aroma is grassy with hints of drier hay. Light amber color with a very nice two finger thick white head. Flavor is all smooth malt with just a hint of sweet caramel in the finish. This will be overlooked because it doesnít have any wow factor, but this a damn fine beer. Excellent lacing a beautiful head and flavor that does what it is supposed to do.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 . It was pretty much average. no aroma, not too much taste, but a slight hop presence was there, iíll have to try again, everyone else seems to differ.

Amber in color (duh) with a diminishing head. Light malt aroma, I cought just a hint of grass or something to that effect when I took my first whiff, but couldnt find it again. Light malts and even lighter hop taste, but a smooth and easy drinking beer.

Copper in color with a slightly off white head. It is very tasty, one of the better amber ales Iíve had. Very smooth with a little bit of a dry taste to it. Both of the Bellís brews I have had were very good.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Pours a cloudy copper with a large off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel. Initial flavor is sweet with a dry bitter finish. Very tasty and easy to drink.

12 oz bottle Pours a cloudy copper with a white head that produces nice lacing. Has a light malt aroma. Taste is crisp and barely sweet with a slight chalky finish. Nice duration and lively carbonation. Has a decent touch of bitterness. A good beer.

Orange with an off white head and yeast sediment floating around. Aroma was malty, spiced, yeast, maybe a hint of caramel, and had a thickness to it. Flavor was yeast with good hop character. Reminded me of a watered down barley wine. Definately not what I expected. Finish was dry and bitter. Got worse as I continued to sip it.

Tasty, but a littel too immediate for my tastes. Still one of the better beers Iíve had.

Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Sweet pineapple-orange flavor with moderate hops. Good nice tasting beer - just nothing too spectacular.
