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.

Im not a big fan of the amber ale style, but I have been told by so many that this is one of the best. Its good, caramel, amber colored, with a caramel toast presence with a nice hop balance. For the style its good.

Iíve had this on tap and in bottles. Both experiences were pretty good. For an amber ale, it does finish well.

Hazy amber with a white head. Malts are just light caramel and thereís just a slight spicy hop note in the aftertaste. Yes, itís very drinkable and not really bland, but itís kind of boring.

Really beautiful hazy mahogany/copper orange. Biscuity and toffeey on the nose, follow by some zesty, lemon and grassy hops. Taste that biscuity malt with a good dose of hops that finishes clipped and clean ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Cloudy medium amber color. Average head. VERY smooth on palate. Nice light malty flavor with light hop flavor. More malt than hop flavor

(bottled & bottle conditioned). Faintly sweet malt aroma, cloudy lighter-than-copper color (which is very attractive). Moderate body with a slightly sweet pale malty tinge. Nice clean bitterness fades shortly after the finish. Moderate carbonation adds to the body perception. I'd like to see this in a filtered version.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 Poured from brown bottle into a pilsner glass a: a good hazy, rusty orange/gold color. beer is very cold so a gentle pour only yields a small amount of head. minimal lacing and little visible carbonation in the sediment. this is not a clear beer. s: slight hops with a spicy bit of sweetness, very subtle smell overall. t: mild but upfront hop bite gives way to a sort of fruity sweet malt taste. oranges and pumpkin bread? quite well balanced with nothing stealing the show. extremely refreshing despite the haze and easily sessionable. very tasty beer. i was expecting more alcohol hotness but thankfully it is not noticeable. m: soft but full. maybe a little wheaty which i generally donít care for but is nice here. carbonation is present but very subdued. lingering flavors seem to maintain balance with maybe a bit of hop stickiness dominating the finish. o: my first experience with Bellís Amber was a good one. nice tasty and well balanced beer will not put off anyone except maybe those freaked out by cloudy appearance. not a favorite but definitely glad I tried it!

on tap. nice. yeasty and hearty with a neat hazy orange/brown color but still goes down smooth with a little sweetness and a pleasant touch of hops.

12 oz poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear amber color with a medium off white head. Little retention. Aromas of carmels and malts. Nice sweet malty taste throughout. Not much hop character. Easy drinkability. A nice beer.
