Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Gitchee Gumee Brewfest 2005. I came into this beer with negativity, since I’d heard friends rag on this flagship, but I was pleasently surprised. The aroma was a mellow caramel. The flavors had a perfect balance of malt and hops. This is something I can appreciate, as I’m not a hop head, and while I enjoy a good dose of malt, it can get old. I think this is a beer I could enjoy for some time. It finishes smooth and crisp and leaves a nice lingering flavor on the tounge. Nice!

Dunae, again thanks. Poured red, with an orangeish head. Foamy and good lacing. Rich malty beer yeast aroma. Hops is the first taste, 2nd and 3rd. Smooth with crsip clean taste. Light (desired) mouth feel. Hops again to finish. Good.

Fantastic flavour dancing all over. At first it isn’t surprising but it definitely keeps you coming back. Great amber colour with some suspended yeast. Head was quickly gone, but that didn’t seem to matter. A nice subtle sweet taste to go with some nice hops. This one can go down easily. Thanks to bswatzky for this one.

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.
