3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is a clear amber/light brown with a slightly off white foam cap. Aroma is toasted, roasty caramel malt with no noticeable hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt that gives way to toasted notes and a crisp hop bite to balance it out with a slight citrus flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with normal carbonation. Finish is well balanced with a slight drying character. Overall a well made American amber

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Golden-orange color with a yeasty haze that sticks around; light, eggshell head, slightly creamy and quickly receding to a small collar. Aroma is kind of mild, there isn’t much to it. Some biscuits, bread, and lightly toasted malt with a touch of mildly leafy and lightly spices hops. Touch of pine, even? Taste is equally mild... Mostly malty, toasted bread, light caramel even with some hops that seem of the English persuasion; leafy & earthy with a delicate spice to them. Touch of apple skin in the finish, though it’s mostly made of malt. Not a bad sipper. Kind of bland, but still a decent, relaxing drink.

Had this one on tap at the Joe Louis for a Red Wings game. An average amber. Nothing bad, nothing great.

Bells is a great brewery, and this is a good example (to me at least) of where a great brewery gets a bonus on ratings of their "meh" beers. If you’re rating to style, fine, but I struggled to get much flavor out of this. Bready, doughy, some caramel in the malts, but still, a typical amber meant for innocuous consumption.
