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.

She appears dirty...which I like..She gives excellent head and maintains her dirty lace. Taste is very citrusy.

More of a honey color than amber. Decent head. Malt/orange aroma. A malty/ earthy/ slight citrus flavor, very pleasant. There is a surprising amount of sediment in this beer, for an amber, but not unexpected for a bottled Bells, which I like.

Not bad for an amber. Not my style. Had worse had better. This was my first Bells product and have a few other choices to go. Hopefully they are just as good or better than this one.

Amber is not the first style I reach for, but a friend who I trust recommended it and I was not let down. As with all Bell's there is a fullness to this Amber that reclaims the style from the American "Red" beers. A wonderfully balanced malty sweetness followed by slightly barleywinish alchohol lift at the end.

Great looking pour, smooth taste. This is a great red, especially from a tap.

Clear copper color with full white head. Slightly sweet, fruity aromas and taste. Mild hops. I can see myself keeping this one in the fridge for macro drinkers, or more sophisticated tasters alike. Good, but accessible.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Nice copper color with a thick head and great bubbles. There is a very sweet, malty aroma a good body--I’m not a fan of ambers because they tend to be watery "popular" beers for many breweries, but I like this one a lot. Fruity and a restrained hop profile.

Smooth and rich with a nice sweet finish.

A wonderful beer, that is my favorite "session" beer. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, citrus and floral blend to make a great tasting product. May I have another?

nice orange/amber body with a big white lumpy head. Pleasant mild hop aroma, hints of yeast and toasted malts. same in taste, a bit more perfumey as it warmed. Well drawn out finish with fruity floral undertones.
