Bell's Best Brown Ale is OK. It has a really pretty presentation, the brown lightens toward the edges and has a marble type of character. There's no real head to speak of, and there's no real aroma. The flavor is pretty good, it's malty with caramel, apricot, and iced-tea notes. The mouthfeel is like slightly carbonated water, there's just not much there to comment on. This wouldn't be a bad beer for session drinking. Kay drank this with me and didn't enjoy it that much. She picked up on the caramel, but little else, and just didn't think there was a lot here to recommend.
