Beautiful color and a bit of a stale bitter aroma. Full flavored ale, but not my favorite. Bitter, dry, but still ...not bad at all

Good is too small a word for this one. Very nice all around beer with better balance than most in its class. Thi is only my second Bellís experience and I like it better than the Oberon.

Far better than many other íredí beers. Has a strong buiscuity character that is distracting and the last sample I had was a bit hazy. Still a good beer worthy of a try.

Copper with a small beige head, nice lacing. Smells and tastes very malty, also pretty sweet and has a light bitter finish. Good Amber overall.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper. Taste on the nose is malt followed by a nice citrus follow. Tastes more like an APA then a amber ale. It's good as an APA.

This particular bottle poured with large head...the ale has some beautiful bubbles. The color is a cloudy amber that is very inviting. The sweet aroma is contrasted by a lingering bitterness, the contrast and balance is nice. A nice thin head is lingering...this adds to the overall look. A very nice Amber Ale this one is.

Bottle pours clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is malt and bread. First taste is sweet malt with nice hops balance. Finish is sweet. Not strong on hops but really like this one. Way better than Fat Tire.

This is a classic session beer. It has enough malts to provide a slightly sweet flavor. But it is hopped well enough to be balanced. A touch of fruitiness makes it a grand beer experience.
