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 beer is delicious. There is not much more you can say. Being a microbrew, it however can be a bit pricey.

A decent amber, slightly watery. Very light hop presence, creating a smooth amber experience.

Very good ale...I enjoyed it from the first taste. Color is light copper with an average off-white head. The nose is immediately sweet, bready, and fruity. The taste starts out sweet with faint notes of yeast and sweet caramel malt and finishes with a quite bitter hoppiness. Throughout, the flavors of fruit remain, particularly acidic citrus, berry, and (though I donít know if anyone else has said it, I swear I tasted) melon. A bit thick for an ale, but well carbonated so the palate and finish were excellent.

I enjoy this brew frequently on tap in a Chicago jazz club- itís full-bodied with just a pinch of sweetness, but balanced perfectly. Nice color, and has that unique, consistent Bells flavor. Actually, Iím a Bells Amber ambassador. It may not be for everyone, but itís one of my very favorites. I probably enjoy it more than most; every one Iíve had has been quite enjoyable.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a muddy brown with minimal head and very thin lacing. Iím not sure if itís because of how long Iíve had it, but the particles are insane. Super citrus aroma with an equally strong floral backbone; some caramel malt as well. Taste is extremely sweet, light on the palate, and creamy on the finish. As always, very refreshing, and one of the best amber ales Iíve had. Acquire.

Bottle. Noticible caramel and fruit flavor. Carbonation is also noticible but not a problem. Enough hops to add a touch to dryness and bitterness. Certainly a drinkable beer.

12oz bottle thanks to Jaye. Pours dark amber red with ample white foam. Aroma is yeasty and malty. Good malt / hops balance, ending with hops. Good amber.

From notes. Pours a nice honey amber, with a two finger fluffy white head that doesnít stick around long but leaves a nice lacing and keeps a thin whispy film atop the brew. Smells of caramel malt and sweet carmalized sugar, I get a little breadyness In there with pretty discreet hops in the back. Nice sweet malty flavors, I am still getting other burnt caramel. Nice lightly bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium high carbonation. Easy to drink refreshing beer.

Citrus, sugar; hazy orange, thin bubbles; bittersweet, close to full body; somewhat thick, just ok, drinkable
