3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Someone gave this to me. Good beer, had a fruity aroma and flavor. Was smooth on the palate. Suprised that it is 6% as I didn’t notice an alcohol presence as smooth as it went down the hatch. Sorry Turbo just realized your that someone.

Tap. Dark brown color with medium tan head. Complex aroma of sweet malt. Flavor started sweet and finished with the bite of hops. Good drinkable brew.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is extremely weak but what’s there is malty (one may risk inhaling the brew!) Nice honey-amber tint; small head, thin bubbles. Surprisingly flavorful compared with the meagre aroma. Toffee malts dominate, with a nice hops balance that cascades on through in the finish along with some vague watermelon tinges. Very crisp, clean mouthfeel.
