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.

This gleaming brew was acquired in trade with CB and TAR, Thanks you guys!
Pours a hazy amber body with a mountainous and rocky tan head. This ones got some big chunks of oatmeal looking stuff floating around. The nose is sweet and malty. The barley is most present, along with some notes of summer honeysuckle and caramel. The flavor brings most of the same attributes as the aroma.. with the addition of a tart lemony bite in the finish. Overall itís exceptionally drinkableÖ. More mentions of caramel than most Ambers; and a little graininess, maybe Rye that differentiates the Amber Ale from others.

Bottle at Union Jack's Pub in Speedway, IN on 4/1/2004. Bottle pours a nice looking amber color with a nice head and lace all the way down. The aroma is slightly hop like. The flavor is sweet malt with a good bitter balance. Rich body provides some nice backbone to this. Overall, very nice.

Poors a nice head from the start with a beautiful golden-amber color. I found this beer very refreshing, not overly hoppy-slight hops in the aftertaste (and I love hoppy beers, but not in this style), and a malty taste that is sweet at the initial taste (in the aftertaste only the maltiness remains). I love Bells beers and this is another great one in its arsenal.

nice head. pretty beer. light caramel smells... a very well balanced beer with a nice, long, dry after taste. a bit thin, but a damn good beer, overall.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 On tap. This had a small, white head that went away quickly. Slight hops aroma and a little sweet honey wth some bubble gum. The flavor has a little bitterness and some nutty wheat bite. The after taste was relatively bitter.

Amber-red color, dissipating head. Subtle aromas of sweet orange, subdued spiciness. Rich flavors and mouthfeel. Quite sweet and fruity, very satisfying.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Awesome. The label is pretty lame though. Nice fruity hop aroma and taste. A little sweet, too. rerate. probably the best the amber iíve had. total balance between hops and a sweet malt. excellent.
