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.

A good transition beer. Not a bold strong Bellís but a very decent brew, better than a national brand anything. Nice hops like a pale ale. Well malted. Very good after fish.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 RBSG2003 (extended) On tap at the brewery. Clear, deep golden brew. Small, creamy, white head which retains well. Nice lacing. The aroma is of white bread, butterscotch, honey-butter and a subtle, unidentified, fuzzy fruit. Creamy, rich flavor. Caramelly and malty up front. Nicely bittered and balanced on the backside. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter, dry, grassy finish!

"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasnít complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but iíve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

Bottle @ Bradís house Minneapolis. Pours a hazy burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Nutty, toasty grainy, earthy, lightly sweet aroma. Somewhat creamy, bitter herbal, straw, toasty bready flavor. Ok.

[Bottle @ Papsoe] Hazy amber with tiny head. Sweet fruity aroma with hops and chocolate. Flavor is sweet malty with toffee and mild bitternes in the end. Good fair beer.

Thanks to atpayne for this. I always salivate at the appearance of a new (or old, for that matter) Bells beer. Slight turbid dark straw pour, with tons of floaties. Aroma of malt, corn flakes, some hops, slight toffee and brown sugar. Malty taste, with a corn flakey, slight caramel finish. A top notch amber ale.
