A surprising find while driving through South Carolina. This beer is one of my all time favorites, with a nice roasted barley aroma and smooth mouth feel, it tastes of pure malt and is well balanced with a noble hop finish. Living in the Midwest it will be a struggle to get more of this top-notch brew. Skallish (20) - Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bought a six pack in Spartansberg, SC. Liked the description. Going to stick my neck out a bit, but I think its one of the better Double Pale Ales I’ve had over the years. Love the light amber & hazy color. Of course it has a thin, foamy head due to the 8% gravity. Has sweet aroma of caramel & pine (as they say, "a swift flavor combo of bitter hops & sweets malts) with a hoppy bitterness upfront and a sweeter finish of burnt sugars with caramel in between. Enjoy!

R.J. Rocker Bell Ringer has a thin, cream-colored head (which thickens up, once the bottom contents are swished and poured), a hazy, brilliant orange-mellon appearance, with gray chunks at the bottom and thick lacing left behind. The aroma is very strong, sweet, pungent, and of overly-ripe (rotted) light fruits. Tastes is also rich, with turned fruit, medium malt, sugar, fairly strong bitterness, and even a brandy wine aspect. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and R.J. Rocker Bell Ringer finishes cloying, sweet, semi-dry, and even harsh. This is a most excellent and challenging strong ale. RJT properhops (88) - - SEP 9, 2011

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma is full of malt and some caramel. The taste matches the aroma with the addition of some fruit flavorings.
