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.

Caramel colored pour with a fairly large head. A little caramel over malts and a litle hops. Smooth, slightly sweet.

Cloudy amber-orange color with a small head that disappeared quickly. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor, with notes of caramel. This is much better and much more well-balanced than I remember it being a few years ago. I avoided this beer for several years, and was pleasantly surprised tonight when I decided to give it another try. A nice amber ale.

as far as amber ales are concerned this one is pretty solid. a nice hoppiness with the hint of deeper character, perhaps of fruit. slightly sweet. a decent easy drinker.

Good semi-rich mouthfeel, fruity taste, fresh and well-balanced with spicy undertones. A good run at an amber ale (not one of my favorite types).

Good is too small a word for this one. Very nice all around beer with better balance than most in its class. Thi is only my second Bell’s experience and I like it better than the Oberon.

Far better than many other ’red’ beers. Has a strong buiscuity character that is distracting and the last sample I had was a bit hazy. Still a good beer worthy of a try.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy pale amber. I was shocked at the amount of yeast/sediment, which I did not expect in an amber ale. Nice off white head. Aromas were all citrus, mainly lemon. The taste was overwhelmingly lemony, more like an iced tea than an amber ale. Extremely hoppy. I was somewhat disappointed. This is more like an IPA, which would have been fine if that was what I was in the mood for/expecting.

Beautiful color and a bit of a stale bitter aroma. Full flavored ale, but not my favorite. Bitter, dry, but still ...not bad at all

Copper with a small beige head, nice lacing. Smells and tastes very malty, also pretty sweet and has a light bitter finish. Good Amber overall.
