Very smooth poor and taste. You will not find a higher quality amber. This is my favorite brewer in this style.

Bottle. Decent all-around beer, but nothing really stands out about this one. A bit disappointing.

On tap at a local bar. A nice copper amber color with a moderate head. Good mouthfeel with a smooth flavour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite enjoyable and readily available around southeast michigan. To me this is almost an ale, lager hybrid as some of the malts and hops are those often used in lagers, but the process is ale. It’s smooth, crisp, aromatic. Malts are kinda bready, hops seem like a german/american hybrid, if that makes any sense. Nice medium body fits casual drinking with meals and such, or times when you care to really think about your beer.

bottle. Absolutely beatiful color. good body and balance. Not an outstanding flavor but I am not a fan of ambers. one of the only bell’s beers I will not revisit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a frothy white head. Decent amount of lacing. A light hoppy and nutty aroma. Well-balanced flavor and an easy-drinker, can’t ask for much more for this style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour, nice tannish head. Bright aroma. A nice balanced taste, dry hops and caramel malt notes. Almost like a bock, nice fruitiness.

If you are trying to get drunk, drink enough of them and you will be drunk otherwise this beer has no pay off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy amber with white head. Small particles visible in beer. Aroma is caramel malts, a bit of toasty bread. Flavor is slightly toasty and caramelly, and the yeast is present. Not overly exciting, but a solid amber ale.
