UPDATED: JUL 29, 2009 Sweet caramel malt, yeast, and earthy hops waft from the glass. It pours with a light but firm carbonation. Medium caramel malt flavor with a lot of diacetyl yeast residue. The diacetyl character detracts from the palate.

Pours a hazy copper with a fair amount of sediment. Thick creamy head with small bubbles that last. Aroma is light caramel with some biscuit/bready notes. Medium light body. Med carbonation. Flavor is primarily light caramel with a fair amount of residual sweetness. Hops balance, but play second fiddle to the caramel. Overall, a good session beer, but I expected something a little more impressive from Bellís.

ABR ’08 - On Cask. It pours medium amber with tick lacy head. The nose was sweet yet some bitter hops. It seemed to be quite bitter and the head just got to be too much.

Aroma has hints of caramel. Pours a beautiful cloudy amber with a foamy white head. Taste is smooth with hints of malt and hops. Has a medium body on the palate. Very smooth amber, pleasure to drink; however, doesnít really stick out from other ambers.

BeerGuyTWMore (128) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Pours a hazy orange-amber with very thich froathy foam, unfortunately doesnít last long. Aromas of sweet malts and hops alittle fruity. Sweet bready malts up front (yeast, fruit and caramel), bitter hop finish. Be sure to swirl the bottom inch or two when pouring to irritate the yeast or pour through strainer

donteatpoop (127) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2008
Poured a light amber with a thin white head with virtually no retention. The smell was very faint, hints of breads and malts. Great taste; earthy, bready, and lightly hoppy. Watery in the mouth, not very full, but a great carbonation level and a pleasant after taste. Very drinkable, wish I had bought a few more. Serving type: bottle

Airlifter (127) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2008
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.

Batch 8274, poured a very cloudy amber/copper with a thick, foamy head. It had a pretty strong malty and slightly floral smell. The taste is more of the same--a pretty strong malty flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Overall this one is a pretty drinkable beer. Not too bad at all.
