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. cubs (10640) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s 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. BVery (10600) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Tap. Clear reddish amber pour. Thin white head. Caramel malt nose. Big malt bomb on taste with caramel and bread notes. jercraigs (10556) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle from Rozi’s in Cleveland. Lightly hazy orange amber body with a good size creamy white head (3+). Toasty grains, wheaty notes in aroma carry over to a grainy flavour of sweet toasty malt accented by a wheat like tartness. Average palate. Meh, okay but a bit dull especially for Bells. 6/3+/6/3/12 KimJohansen (10509) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2008
[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.

Bottle. Amber in color (what, did you think it would be blue?) with a small white head. There is a sweetness from the malts but,not as many hops as I expected in the aroma or the flavor. I did get some citrus flavor as well as caramel. Not bad, just not my typical style. olio (10342) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
355 ml bottle @ hotel room, Los Angeles.phaleslu (10325) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Resin and caramel on the nose, citric fruits and pine. Flavor is slightly malty, some orange and resin notes, some faint pineapple. A bit boring.
12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with some visible sediment and a big rocky off-white head that leaves some lacing. Light aroma of orange citrus, caramel, toast, and rye. Malty flavor, with notes of orange citrus, toast, and a little spice. Well-balanced, malty, and a bit sweet. Mild and light-medium bodied, with a dry finish. Good beer. KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle with dcachur after the Founders night, RBSG. Nice amber malt falvor and great hop balance. Slightly sweet, with a bit of chocolate and caramel. Very drinkable. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Pours a hazy copper/light amber with a good head the fades quickly. Looks actually more like a hefeweisen dunkel. Very little lacing. Aroma is of slight grass, caramel malts, straw, vanilla extract. Creamy almost buttery taste with good balancing hops. Taste is fairly light but with a solid malt backbone with lots of caramel. A solid amber.
