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.

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.

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

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.

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.

orange-copperish color with a thick head. Aroma has some sweet maltiness to it. Taste is a perfect mix of bitter and sweet. Initially a sweet malt taste with some hints of nuts and caramel, but by the time you finish, the hops kick in so the beer is not overly sweet. Only downside is that the taste could have been a bit stronger. Body was a good thickness. A bit on the expensive side compared to what else was available, but still cheap enough to be an any week beer.

Amber & Pizza Night. Hazy orange. Aroma of lush fruit, sweet caramel and honey. Subtle taste with amazing balance and a light finish. Creamy fruits & caramel. Medium body that’s very smooth with fine, light carbonation. Smooth sailing and one to convert non-beer drinkers. Great stuff.

Light amber color. Roasty, herbal aroma. Subtle taste of caramel, herbs, and toast. Very good, above average amber make
