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.

delmecum (87) - Western Illinois, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Nice off white head. Copper color with some slight cloudiness. A different style amber ale if one is thinking Killian. A good beer from start to finish. Try it

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 don’t 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 Bell’s 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!

PGA324 (86) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Amber/orange color, clear body with average creamy off-white head. Lacing good. Not too powerful in terms of aroma - light hops. Noticeable fizzy carbonation, flavor long in duration with light/moderate bitterness and notes of citrus.

markgugs (86) - Wood Ridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2007
poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic pint glass A: Pours a sparkling clear copper with a large, frothy head of off-white foam and leaves some thick, sticky lacing. Looks good. S: Gives off a moderately nutty, toasted aroma, with perhaps a dash of yeasty doughiness. T/M: Initial sips produce some light citrus notes, then bigger, bolder flavors of toffee, butterscotch, and even milk chocolate take over. A very nice sweet, malted finish. Beer features a medium-bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel and is carbonated well. D: This is a very solid beer, I could drink large quantities of this with ease and would do so if I could find them more regularly!

ludhaber (85) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2013
The beer has good malt taste. Excellent balance. A little light on the malt mouthfeel. Aroma is also very light and somewhat insufficient for a really good beer. This beer is just fine.

pours an orange brown but im color blind and this beer seems to have a weird cilor. Has a good taste but not so crisp and confusing on the palate. A bit bitter and dry but at the same time has a watery wetness that dilludes the flavor.

This beer was very smooth. It starts off very subtle, and finishes with a punch. I really enjoyed the creamy taste this has. Very drinkable

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.
