Suprised by this one, pours a yellow/dark orange with a decent head. Starts off roasted malts, fruits, then proceeds to smooth out with little carb/alch presence. A well brewed beer.

Some of the bottles in my 6-pack were good and some not so fresh. Nice color with good lacing. Creamy flavor with lots of hopping. Pretty nice.

This is a really good bottle of Bell’s Amber compared to most I have had. Aroma is probably the weakest link, floral with slight hops odor. Appearance is just about perfect. Nice coppery color with a great foamy head. Flavor is just right for an amber, a little heavier on hops than most, but without overpowering grain. Sits great...

12 oz. bottle from Slikwily. Slightly cloudy orange amber colour with a mostly diminishing frothy off-white head. Rich caramel, bread, and orange aroma. Orange and lemon flavours with a fruity bitter and lightly acidic tangy finish. Medium bodied, juicy and refreshing mouthfeel.

as far as amber ales are concerned this one is pretty solid. a nice hoppiness with the hint of deeper character, perhaps of fruit. slightly sweet. a decent easy drinker.
