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.

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.

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.

gmcase (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2007
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.

TheChampion (114) - Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
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.

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2010
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.

jbean (110) - Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2007
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.

Fruity goodness. Good, solid amber color. Ends smooth and light. Easy to drink.
