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.

Pale, cloudy orange; Head was thinish but whats there is dense; Aroma of bread, malt, and grapenuts. Mild first sip- hint of citrus, hint of spice, hint of malt, hint, hint, hint. Liquid biscuit. The perfect session beer? Could be.

An abstract depiction of a swan graces the label of this fine Amber Ale and serves as a harbinger of this brewís grace and poise. Wafting from the glass comes a heavenly scent of what is clearly a beer brewed with much TLC. Nicely hopped, this Amberís a joy to imbibe.

I am having a few bottles of this with my braut lunch. This brew pours a sparkling hazy (floaties - lots) amber (go figure). The tight frothy white head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The fresh nose is spice, caramel, fruit, resin, and earth. The flavor is warm and complex (great balance - sweet, acidic, and bitter) with a rich full finish. The medium body is lively and creamy. The finish feels dry. An all occasion brew, very well done!

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.
