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.

This is a great beer. It seems to have a good blend of hops to give it a very good taste, with an aroma that is excellent. I would have to say one of the best beers that i have had i would suggest it to anyone.

draft. Hoppy citrus aroma. Light burnt orange appearance with no head. Almost no malt flavor with the dominance of hops. light bodied with lots of carb feel and a slight malt feel and a balance of hops from start to finish. Didnt care for this beer much.

Not bad, but kind of boring. This style isn’t too wild in general, but I’m kind of pissed off I spent so much money on this six pack. Could be much worse though as it is certainly drinkable and quite good, but nothing I would buy on a regular basis and nothing that overly impressed me.

Poors a nice head from the start with a beautiful golden-amber color. I found this beer very refreshing, not overly hoppy-slight hops in the aftertaste (and I love hoppy beers, but not in this style), and a malty taste that is sweet at the initial taste (in the aftertaste only the maltiness remains). I love Bells beers and this is another great one in its arsenal.

from the bottle. Your basic brown/amber ale with a little more sweetness and fruit. Good quality but not outstanding.

this beer was a suprise to me. with a light coppor flavor and a medium head leaving nice rings on the glass. it has a smooth taste, sweet at first with a light hoppy finish that is barely noticeable at first. it also has a dry finish on your lips. suprising to my self i enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Saw Bell’s Amber listed as a 94 in DRAFT magazine, so picked it up at the local beer store. Color is a light orange-red with a thick white head. The aroma is just the right mix of malt and caramel with a hint of hops. The flavor is full-bodied, with a strong sweet aftertaste and mouthfeel. This is an EXCELLENT session beer, and easily the best American amber I have had.

Good beer for an amber. Pours a nice copper color. Mostly malt on the nose, but all aromas are light. Nice caramel flavor, smooth mouthfeel, but it could use some more lacing. Solid amber.

Beautiful color. Better than your average amber. Kind of chestnutty. Round and pleasant.

Appearance: Slightly hazy medium brown body, coarse tan head. Smell: Sweet malt with some citrusy hop aroma and a bit of caramel. Taste: Starts out sweet, toasted malt; some earthy and yeasty notes in the background along with just a hint of diacetyl; nice medium hop bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Excellent example of the style. Full of flavour and well-balanced, easy to drink quite a few.
