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

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

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

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Pours a dark caramel color. Smell is on the malty side. Taste is caramel malts up front, hop bitterness kicking in ay the finish. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer."

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
