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.

Possibly the best Amber Ale Iíve ever had. Rich caramel taste that never gets old. I canít rate it super high with the huge flavors of other beers, but this is as good as it gets for this style, or at least as good as Iíve had. Delicious.

Very cloudy amber color reminding me of a home brew. The taste is a nice balance of caramel malts and light hops.

Very rich amber hue even reddish in certain light, with a foamy white head that leaves soon after pouring. The aroma is sweet and the palate is not extreamly eventful. It is refreshing but definatly not Bellís best. Overall it wasnít quite what I expected but by no means bad.

A really nice beer. Pours orangey amber with a decent head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is sweet citrus, flavor is malty and sweet -- the sweetness increases with drinking but never becomes cloying. It tastes as if there is some wheat in this brew but I have no idea. On the bottle it says "A unique copper ale crafted from mostly pale malts for a rich, sweet flavor unlike any other." Hey, theyíre right.

Nice opaque amber color, fluffy white head. Very sweet to my nose, sweet fruits and caramel. Hoppier than I would have guessed from the aroma, but still a pleasantly balanced beer, but nothing special. Winking Lizard Tour 2007

This tastes like a quality brew, but they said it had a sweetness and based on that I bought some. It was too hoppy to really be sweet. The malts didnít really "balance" the hops flavor either, in my opinion. By being adaptable and changing my expectations based on what I now know to be true about this brew, I will gladly finish the six pack, since, after all, it is quality brew. However, I wasnít really after the bitter hops flavor at all, so I feel its misrepresented.
