COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottom poured murky (nearly opaque) brownish copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, butterscotch, and caramel malts. Taste of nutty and caramel malts with a citrus, lightly bitter, hop finish.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Slightly hazy amber with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with citrus and maybe a touch of vanilla. Rich malty flavor with more sweetness than I expected and a fair hop presence as well. Satisfying finish.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Amber color with white head and a little lacing. It had a bread/grain smell. There was an almost bitter fruit taste that I didn’t really care for.

Amber in color indeed! With a nice lacing white head, as well. The aroma is malty, bread and caramel tinged with toffee, and light hops. As it warms the aroma shifts more to the hops with a definate citrus and pine scent, and a slight bit of diacetyl. The flavor is sweet, toasty, with fruity yeast in the background. Decent bitterness and a smooth mouthfeel finish this one off. Overall this is still a great beer, it’s nice to see Bell’s still getting the job done.

I really like this beer. Nice mixture of malts and hops. Pours a fairly small white head. Very cloudy orange/amber color. The flavor is of orange peels, peaches, a bit of a butter taste? Nice everyday beer to have in the fridge this winter.

ARMed (613) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Smooth tasting ale with a slightly sweet flavor. Subtle smoothness. My beer was unfortunately recently shaken and therefore the appearance was poor as many yeast particulates were floating in the beer. Good palate excentuates the overall rating of the beer.

SpringsLicker (3224) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Thanks to csbosox for sending this out! Huge head over a clear amber beer. Light malt aroma with a touch of cookie dough. Balanced flavor that is slightly sweet. Not bad.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Deep amber/or orange w/ a lite head. Stale hop aroma w/ some caramel. Lite-med body. Full caramel/munich flavors. Lite bitterness. One of the more tasty ambers.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Really butter/popcorn & vegetable nose. Bitter continues into the flavor combining with some nice malts and a little lemon. Some tingly and herbal hops. The butter is just too much for this beer to be great.
