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.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. This ranks as one of the best browns out there. Smooth and malty, all perfectly balanced. hopwine (678) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Best brown ale I’ve ever had by a long margin. Nose is bread crust/bread pudding, raisin. Flavor is same with mild toffee and caramel, mild piney hops, more crust/toasty bread, faint cocoa. vanabbema99 (13) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2001
This is my favorite Brown Ale; I'm never disappointed by Bell's, and recommend all their beers. Odin (123) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2002
Ludacris to say that Newcastle is better or even as good as this brown. It truly is the best.

Dark beer with a nice pillow head. Subtle cereal and burnt caramel taste with a slightly bitter finish. Great american brown ale that isn’t super hoppy. SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours dark amber brown with a large light beige head. Smells a little toasty with hints of toffee. Taste is toasted and toffee with a tiny touch of bitterness. Light-to-medium bodied with a smooth, slick texture and lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Bells Best Brown Ale finishes with a smooth sweetness that is very satisfying. bowlnman1990 (94) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Aroma: caramel and sweet malt. Appearance: deep brown but almost no head. Taste: sweet caramel and a hint of chocolate. Palate: full and a nice finish. Overall: everything I like in a brown ale. WanderinCelt87 (197) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Pours a lovely amber brown with a creamy white colored head. Has a nice subtle aroma of molasses and roasted malt. Has a very easy going taste of brown sugar. Leaves a some what sweet after taste.
