Slightly cloudy, dark orange color. Slight hoppy, fruit aroma. Very bitter finish with a touch of fruit. This is a great brewery by the way, gotta love the stout selection - amazing. Go there in November, when the stouts are brewed.

Okay, it has a nice amber color and creates a nice tan head. A little light for this style, but I beginning to feel this is what this company aims for. A good beer, just lighter than I think this style should be

Bottle. A light amber color with no head and only a slight lace. A nice citrus tangy aroma. Surprisingly good for this style. A dry finish but a wet first stage tangy, complex sweetness, and slightly fruity.

Slightly sweet, pretty color, nice touch of hops. Very refreshing and went well with a nice meal on a veranda watching the crowds walk by.

I enjoy this brew frequently on tap in a Chicago jazz club- itís full-bodied with just a pinch of sweetness, but balanced perfectly. Nice color, and has that unique, consistent Bells flavor. Actually, Iím a Bells Amber ambassador. It may not be for everyone, but itís one of my very favorites. I probably enjoy it more than most; every one Iíve had has been quite enjoyable.

This is a good Amber beer. There is a strong malty aftertaste, but it can be quite charming as long as it doesnít turn you off.

A little sweet and a nice hop flavor. Looks and smells excellent, but there was a mild soapy flavor that really ruined it for me.

For me, this is the best beer that I have ever had. All other beers must attempt to be this good.
