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.

Light amber color, medium head. Malt aroma. Hop flavor. Over carbonated.

I thought is was a pretty nice beer. Nice golden color. Nose has a bit some spice and some nice malty aromas. Citrus comes through in the body. Went very well with Lemon Pepper Chicken. Another nice effort from Kalamazoo.

Really, I’m not that all crazy about Amber beers. Strong flavor, almost like well water as it tastes like iron. Not bad but I’d prefer to spend my money on some of their other concoctions.

This is a delicious beer, plain and simple. The flagship of the Bell’s line. Is it an amber or something else? It seems like much more. It seems like an Amber cross-bred with an IPA. The hops hit you and then you are whacked by the malt and back to the hops again on the swallow. Nothing thin or light with this amber. Yum! A winner! You cannot go wrong with any of the Bell’s products.

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 brew’s grace and poise. Wafting from the glass comes a heavenly scent of what is clearly a beer brewed with much TLC. Nicely hopped, this Amber’s 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.
