Absolutely the best brown ale I have ever had. Spicy and caramelly and nutty in the nose, thick long-lasting head, a little citrust and hppy perkiness, but overall deep richness and malty goodness. Sweet and a slightly sugary finish. Beautiful deep ruby color held up to the sun. Great unwinding beer! raverchikadee (14) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2010

Couldn’t think of a better beverage to go along with a Thanksgiving dinner. Very savory, serve at about 45 degrees. At a 5.8abv this is a perfect socializing beer. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bell’s Best Brown Ale is a clear, dim red ale with a dense, frothy coffee-cream colored head that’s elastic and retains its form well. It coats the glass. The nutty chocolate aroma has a light floral note. It’s a little roasty. It smells great. It’s pretty full bodied and incredibly smooth with a clean, dry finish. It feels soft and fluffy. It tastes dry, roasty, nutty and chocolaty. There’s enough wooden, leafy bitterness to balance it out perfectly. It’s incredibly drinkable-- an excellent beer.

This is the only beer I've had that was cask conditioned. I had it at the Berkley Front. If you are ever in the Detroit area, check out this and two other hand pulled beers as well as 48 more on tap on 12 mi near Woodward.

Pours out into a copper color with very small tan head. Aroma is that of a malty coffee. Light hoppy taste with a quick dry after taste. Excellent beer brewed in Michigan, would defentely buy again! AJK9600 (20) - Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Outdoors, mid 40s temps, poured into a frosted mug. Small fire going. This beer is excellent for the situation described. Deep flavors with a superb hoppy finish.
