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.

This amber has a nice note of hops its not bells best but worthy of the name. Fruit flavor is a little weak but the fulfilling palate of hops makes up for it.

"Pours a dark caramel color. Smell is on the malty side. Taste is caramel malts up front, hop bitterness kicking in ay the finish. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer."

You want something fairly simple, drinkable, yet complex and delicious? Bell’s Amber Ale is a damn good choice, sir.

Pours a cloudy amber color with white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel and honey. Taste us caramel sweetness followed up with some slight citrus bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium.

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Light amber color with a lot of haze. Medium head and light fruity aroma. The palate is light and flavor light also. Finish weaker than I expected without the hops bite. My first Bells produdt and I'm underwhelmed.

Perhaps the best amber ale I have ever had. Smooth with a strong carmel flavor that was perfect after a meal.

Bottle. A rich copper color. Flavor is full of caramel and citrius with a bit of coffee. A nice beer.

Nice cloudy copper pour from the bottle. Good sized head with a high degree of lacing. The sweetness mathces nicely with the maltiness but the carbonation is a little high, I think.

muddyfeet (72) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Pours a thick and hazy brown in color. Fairly dense white head that evaporated down to a scuzzy layer. Malty nose with a slight evergreen whiff to it. Flavor is a nice solid malt backbone. Kind of an oakiness to it as well. Hops give a slight sprice and evergreen flavor too. Medium to almost full mouthfeel. odd for the setyle but I am really digging it. Nice almost-session beer.
