3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Thanks pailhead. Pours a cloudy....amber with some orangish hints in it. Cloudy with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is of very bready malts. Grainy and doughy and slightly sweet and yeasty. No hops in the nose. Flavor was sweet upfront of caramel and cereal grains, definitely a malt monster with a bit of malty nuttiness. Slight hop bitterness and earthy hops, possibly UK hops with maybe a tinge of grapefruit. Ester profile is moderate but gives just enough fruity balance. Finishes moderate dry. Body was quite full, especially for an amber; goes down smooth and easily with adequate carbonation. Great session beer. Solid but not ’blow-you-out-of-the-water’ like some other Bell’s.

I really prefer IPAs and Stouts but one of the better ales that I’ve had. Nice malt with touch of caramel flavors.

I love amber ales...Wasn’t too sure about this one but once it warmed up the carmel notes started coming through... this is a great beer

Realizing that I am not as much an amber fan as I thought I was. Solid brew from a fantastic brewery.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy amber/orange, two finger white head, moderate lacing. Aroma is of fresh bread, caramel and citrus fruit. Taste is bready, caramel sweet, earthy bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation, slightly resin. Finishes bitter sweet. A solid Amber.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper. Taste on the nose is malt followed by a nice citrus follow. Tastes more like an APA then a amber ale. It's good as an APA.

Des malts caramélisé délicatement, des houblons humides dans un corps croustillant teinté d’un minuscule sucre résiduel.

This beer really reminded me of fall. Had a very strong caramel flavor to it, and reminded me of eating caramel apples. It was pretty hoppy and thick, so I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I would definitely buy this beer again. It would be good for football tailgates!

It has caramel flavors with a strong aftertaste. A little heavier beer but still good.

This beer has caramel flavors with a strong aftertaste. It would be great paired with a steak.
