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.

I’m not usually too impressed by a standard Amber Ale, but this hit the spot. The aroma is fresh, pretty hoppy, with a touch of sweetness. The taste is a great balance of sweet caramel malt and some bitter hops. Overall, well done.

Pours a murky orange color with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma is pleasant with some toffee, butterscotch, citrusy hops, and a bit toasted. Taste is pretty well balanced with more of the citrus and malty sweetness noted in the aroma.

Amber with a lite tan head. Lots of tiny bubbles and peppered with malts when held up to light. Slight bitter malty aroma. Smooth malty flavor. Nice!

JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 6, 2007
Nice bronze colour. The smell is excellent--a bit of sweet floral, some malt, well-rounded. A yeasty bread loaf scent is also there. Mouthfeel is average, but not bad. Taste makes up for this. Subdued sweet start, some orange peel taste, sweet kick without being too overpowering, bitter chocolate-roasted coffee finish. Bitter aftertaste that lingers for a little while. Some hops to make it worthwhile. This would be an excellent session beer, I think. High quality and easy to kick back while still enjoying the taste.

Pours a misty copper with small off white head. Some visible yeast particles. Caramel malt aroma with fruit tones. Mildly sweet flabors with some apple caramel bite. More sophisticated than most ambers. I also found it to be a little low on carbonation... Good beer.

The best Amber I can get around here. Somewhat more hoppy than average which doesn’t hurt. caramel, malt, hops, medium-thin body.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2009 Sweet caramel malt, yeast, and earthy hops waft from the glass. It pours with a light but firm carbonation. Medium caramel malt flavor with a lot of diacetyl yeast residue. The diacetyl character detracts from the palate.

jimvy (131) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Pours a hazy copper with a fair amount of sediment. Thick creamy head with small bubbles that last. Aroma is light caramel with some biscuit/bready notes. Medium light body. Med carbonation. Flavor is primarily light caramel with a fair amount of residual sweetness. Hops balance, but play second fiddle to the caramel. Overall, a good session beer, but I expected something a little more impressive from Bell’s.

ABR ’08 - On Cask. It pours medium amber with tick lacy head. The nose was sweet yet some bitter hops. It seemed to be quite bitter and the head just got to be too much.
